They want to travel, go for a drive-go to dinner-- Pay for their date--they don't care about insurance and they certainly are not going to take away from items they want, to purchase insurance.
exactly...only the few who are chronic consumers of medical care ever give much consideration to insurance...

If Galt was interviewing a potential employee and the candidate's first question was about medical insurance, the interview would be over (for all practical purposes).

WASHINGTON (AP)- A slice of corporate America thinks tea partyers have overstayed their welcome in Washington and should be shown the door in next year's congressional elections.
In Michigan, longtime businessmen Brian Ellis and David Trott are challenging hardline conservative Reps. Justin Amash and Kerry Bentivolio in Republican primaries. This comes after three years of frustration over GOP insurgents roughing up the business community's agenda. That all came to a head with the 16-day partial government shutdown and the threat of a national financial default.
The Michigan races are a turnabout after several years of widely heralded contests in which right-flank candidates have tried to unseat Republican incumbents they perceive as not being conservative enough."
you're an idiot kid. You just posted a story badmouthing corporations (too bad you can't read) and then a few minutes later you jump into bed with them.

Excerpt from Nixon's speech about his health care reform plan:

"My proposed plan differs sharply with several of the other health insurance plans which have been prominently discussed. The primary difference is that my proposal would rely extensively on private insurers.

"Any insurance company which could offer those benefits would be a potential supplier. Because private employers would have to provide certain basic benefits to their employees, they would have an incentive to seek out the best insurance company proposals and insurance companies would have an incentive to offer their plans at the lowest possible prices. If, on the other hand, the Government were to act as the insurer, there would be no competition and little incentive to hold down costs.

"There is a huge reservoir of talent and skill in administering and designing health plans within the private sector. That pool of talent should be put to work.

"It is also important to understand that the CHIP plan preserves basic freedoms for both the patient and doctor. The patient would continue to have a freedom of choice between doctors. The doctors would continue to work for their patients, not the Federal Government. By contrast, some of the national health plans that have been proposed in the Congress would place the entire health system under the heavy hand of the Federal Government, would add considerably to our tax burdens, and would threaten to destroy the entire system of medical care that has been so carefully built in America.

"I firmly believe we should capitalize on the skills and facilities already in place, not replace them and start from scratch with a huge Federal bureaucracy to add to the ones we already have."

Very interesting.

Why didn't Democrats go along with this? Sounds like a much better plan to me without big government control.

"Are you a conservative, a libertarian, a Christian or a gun owner? Are you opposed to abortion, globalism, Communism, illegal immigration, the United Nations or the New World Order? Do you believe in conspiracy theories, do you believe that we are living in the “end times” or do you ever visit alternative news websites (such as this one)?

My proposed plan differs sharply with several of the other health insurance plans which have been prominently discussed. The primary difference is that my proposal would rely extensively on private insurers.

Why didn't Democrats go along with this again?

If you read the entire speech, it's like Obamacare but with a lot less government intrusion.

Nevermind, that's probably why.
