Well, I got 8 out of 8 and I dont want gov touching my healthcare. I think giov touches it too much already.

The best thing about the "quiz" is none of the answers mattered with the exception of the "death panel" one. Answering any of them any way didnt signify any value for info, misinfo, or mattered one way or the other ones outlook or perception.

Does it really matter what the term "donut hole" refers to? Does it matter what Medicare is technically for since Medicare and Medicaid and a few other "programs" are all just government spending on healthcare?

I think somebody over at CNN was just bored.

I think its being used as a propaganda tool to further divide people.
It makes no mention of some of the real issues people are worried about in the health bill, such as forced entry, mandatory vaccinations etc

This "test" refers to the supposed co-op health care.
Now I have been looking at all the bills but have Not seen one reguarding this "co-op" so how could Anyone answer the questions?

Do you have a link to the Proposed "Co-Op" health reform??? Please post it if you do okay?

I dont know that there is an actual "co-op" bill but the label and terms have been bouncing all over the MSM the past week. I think TPTB are just bouncing ideas around waiting to see what key words make people happy.

CNN Poll, question 2 their answer.
The "public option" would be Voluntary.

SEC. 401. TAX ON INDIVIDUALS WITHOUT ACCEPTABLE HEALTH CARE COVERAGE.
SEC. 59B. TAX ON INDIVIDUALS WITHOUT ACCEPTABLE HEALTH CARE COVERAGE.
`(a) Tax Imposed- In the case of any individual who does not meet the requirements of subsection (d) at any time during the taxable year, there is hereby imposed a tax equal to 2.5 percent of the excess of--
`(1) the taxpayer's modified adjusted gross income for the taxable year, over
`(2) the amount of gross income specified in section 6012(a)(1) with respect to the taxpayer.
`(b) Limitations-
`(1) TAX LIMITED TO AVERAGE PREMIUM-
`(A) IN GENERAL- The tax imposed under subsection (a) with respect to any taxpayer for any taxable year shall not exceed the applicable national average premium for such taxable year.
`(B) APPLICABLE NATIONAL AVERAGE PREMIUM-

Careful ... ya never know what information they are collecting. If your answers aren't up to Obama administration standards and are too 'fishy' your computer IP may be recorded and the next thing ya' know, the brown shirts who are policing up 'fishy' people will come and get ya'.

Life in the USA isn't what it used to be. Be careful.

That's how they think. Sure, you'll be punished left and right but you chose that option therefore it's voluntary.

If they made you choose between prison or death they can still say "nobody is making you die, it's voluntary" and "nobody is making you go to prison it's voluntary."
