wow tkdsurfer - what a bunch of socialistic bs. I laughed so much when I read that. Thanks! If people would learn to take care of themselves instead of waiting for their handout... This will NEVER be a Socialist nation. Those who want one - there are many to choose from - feel free to leave. Conservatives help those in need. We decide who our money goes to, not the government. As it should be. Since we work for our pay, we SHOULD get to decide where it goes. My daughter doesn't have health insurance. She's 24 and doesn't think she needs it. She works for little to no pay, but she does work. And she pays the Dr. when she needs to see them. But she tries to take care of herself so she doesn't get sick. Preventative care. I realize that there are those that have catastrophic illnesses to contend with. And the medical bills can be horrendous. That is an issue that needs to be addressed, but not at the expense of freedom and liberty.
It's an excellent proposal. No where did it say you couldn't sue for Med Mal. It said - No amount of damages may be collected from any negligent health-care provider except in the proportion to the actor's percentage of negligence. Of course, if people took a little more responsibility for their health - ate right, exercised, followed the health care providers instructions - they wouldn't need as much medical care to begin with. Stay out of the ER's for anything other than an emergency - that's why they are called "Emergency Rooms". Duh. What the socialistic Dems don't like about the proposal is that it doesn't take money from those who have and give to those who don't. (of course, if the don'ts would work, maybe they would have). Besides, why not try it, it doesn't cost the taxpayers anything. If it doesn't work, then back to the drawing board. The majority of people who don't have it are those who don't think they need it or aren't citizens of the US. People run to the ER for sniffles these days. Geez, get a grip.
