Forty-seven million Americans are without health insurance. Why? Because they can't afford it.
So you appear to be for nothing???
That's a cool strategy. Be for nothing that way you can't be
I hope you don't want the Canadian Health Care system down here. Currently, it's IMPLODING up there.
Canadians strongly support the health system's public rather than for-profit private basis, and a 2009 poll by Nanos Research found 86.2% of Canadians surveyed supported or strongly supported "public solutions to make our public health care stronger." A 2009 Harris/Decima poll found 82% of Canadians preferred their healthcare system to the one in the United States, more than ten times as many as the 8% stating a preference for a US-style health care system for Canada while a Strategic Counsel survey in 2008 found 91% of Canadians preferring their healthcare system to that of the U.S.. In the same poll, when asked “overall the Canadian health care system was performing very well, fairly well, not very well or not at all?” 70% of Canadians rated their system as working either "well" or "very well". A 2003 Gallup poll found only 25% of Americans are either "very" or "somewhat" satisfied with "the availability of affordable healthcare in the nation," versus 50% of those in the UK and 57% of Canadians. Those "very dissatisfied" made up 44% of Americans, 25% of respondents of Britons, and 17% of Canadians
Our outstanding debt is so large that the interest being accrued is absorbing every tax dollar the government takes in. The INTEREST. Let alone the principle. What do some of you think will happen? That if we went ahead with this health care proposal- that we would actually do anything to alleviate the health care crisis whilst NOT going broke?
It is going to KILL US not to. We must return to the Constitution.

Corporate America won again, big insurance companies has spend more money lobbying in this campaign health care reform than any other lobbyist group in the nation, and they were only number three on lobbying power, after oil companies and big pharma.
Who won again? it was not the people.

My buddy's wife (the one who had the cousin in Cannada) is a nurse practitioner here in the States...they're all originally from the UK. The cousin in Canada consulted with the my buddy's wife and that's why I know what I know (I never actually met the woman).
