Isn't Medicare, Medicade, and the Vet administration
really ALREADY socialized medicine?
Funny how the people that are already insured by our government
are the ones protesting so hard...
OBAMA: 'I don't want the folks who created the mess to do a lot of talking. I want them to get out of the way so we can clean up the mess'...
White House to Dems: 'Punch back twice as hard'...

Its a crock.
The whole thing is coordinated by the GOP and their allies...the same people who orchestrated the "spontanous" tea parties.
The right has begun resorting to politics via mobs...if this doesn't disturb you nothing will.

The problem I have is the corrupt politicians dismissing everyone's concerns as illegitimate and wrong, as well as implying they aren't even real but staged. They aren't paid to think for us, they are paid to listen to and carry out our wishes.

This is no "citizen" uprising. This rude behavior is well orchestrated by the neocons in union with corporate America (and especially the health insurance giants). Err, by the way you hypocrites, just say no medicare when your time rolls around (and any other 'social' help that may come your way). Hypocrites!

I wonder how many of those people protesting already have health insurance? I bet the majority of them do. As for myself a small business owner, I don't. Why? Well as a single adult of 34 years of age I cannot afford it....... After taxes, utilites, INSURANCE,mortgage, I myself am strapped for cash every month.

Just look at Canada, our healthcare is free. There is also private care if you have the money. Granted, we may have to wait for superficial cases but everybody still gets treated as long as there's a spare heart or lung and they're not addicts who've destroyed their bodies beyond longterm repair.
Public health care is one of the services that should remain free, because no matter what the naysayers say, it can be affordable, as long as the system is well organized, it will have heart which is more than any middleman insurance system can offer.
