A study has found that 62% of bankruptcies are caused by medical bills. There are 46 million Americans with no health insurance at all. And what is the republican's solution for this problem? Well, they don't actually have a solution, at all. There really has been no concrete alternative to national healthcare, none. They rant and rave about the evils of national health-care and yet they have posited no solutions themselves. All I hear from talk show radio is McCarthyian scare tactics and paranoia over the "socialism".


Which is the testament to the spiraling out of control costs of health care.......

"Insurance companies and their sock puppets in Congress see an efficient government competitor (i.e. Public Plan) as a deadly threat. Why? Because their idea of coping with losses is to just raise prices for the customers they have left."

It is difficult for a foreigner to comment, because the Republicans seem so totally ignorant of the outside world and so wedded to lies about it that it causes us to get too angry when they publicise monstrous slanders about our various countries and their systems. Like people in the old Soviet Union, they believe what they are told and try to silence anyone who tells the truth.

"In his first extended television interview since leaving the health insurance industry, Wendell Potter tells Bill Moyers why he left his successful career as the head of Public Relations for CIGNA, one of the nation's largest insurers, and decided to speak out against the industry. "I didn't intend to [speak out], until it became really clear to me that the industry is resorting to the same tactics they've used over the years, and particularly back in the early '90s, when they were leading the effort to kill the Clinton plan."

David, so called Christians today are not real Christians. The early Christians were not individualist. I have a hard time believing that you have ever read the Bible, because it condemns everything that you believe in.

"Bush created Medicare Part D to make prescriptions affordable to seniors. Do you know how he paid for this 300 billion dollar expenditure?

He didn't.[/B] Bush never paid for Medicare Part D, and conservatives were silent and complicit with it. He simply just added the costs to the national debt. Not one conservative publicly criticized Bush over not paying for Medicare Part D."

Let's look at the past few presidents. Gipper? Fiscal conservative... spent like a madman. Daddy Bush? Exact same thing. More deficit. Willie? The tax and spender? How much of a surplus did we have under him?

"Clearly, this is a job-killer in the short-run. The impact on job creation is going to be devastating.""The deficit four years from today will be higher than it is today, not lower."$$$$$$$[/CENTER]

"Not only was the entire national deficit eliminated after raising taxes on the wealthy in 1993, but the economy grew so fast for the remainder of the decade that many conservative economists thought that the Fed should raise the prime interest rate in order to slow it down.[/URL]"

Josef, I noticed you enjoy insulting people, and furthermore still have not disproved my points.
You think almost 37 million Americans with jobs should not have healthcare? Just because 9 million of them don't have jobs?
Also, you talk about business and morality, yet people in power are often religious. Shouldn't they be following THEIR morals while doing business? Because they sure don't.
