Negotiate with the health care providers? It is against the law for them to offer any services below the cost of private insurance. Didn't you knw that with all your expertise? I would bet you either have no health insurance or your employer pays the whole cost.

I'm not a fan of Pelosi and personally can't stand her much either, however I don't think this is proof of anything remotely akin to wiping out Private Insurance.
Don't mistake the negotiation for a minimum coverage for all Americans for wiping out Private Insurance. Private Insurance will still be desired, needed, and able to make criminal profits off it's customers just as they always have.

Again, as I have pointed out time and time again, something the right-wing libertarian fringe refuses to even acknowledge is the fact that currently the USA is ranked #37 int he world for quality of health care and at the same time we spend 200% per-capita' of what the rest of developed-advanced nations spend AND we still have 50,000,000 uninsured.
You talk about how the government is only going to make things worse, well based on all the EVIDENCE that is out there I doubt it. First off those opposed to this refuse to admit to the limited impact government is actually going to have on our health care, that they are going to insure the 50,000,000 uninsured, that billions are wasted every year by making those in charge of the health care industry filthy rich, and that everywhere else in the world where public to socialized systems are in place have astronomically better care.
