The "rich Republican"? I am not a rich individual, yet, I am a Conservativ Republican, I loath this health care, I am from Europe originaly, seen what socialist health care has done to most of these Countries, it isn't pretty, the one who have the funds (rich) pay for those who doesn't.(lower middle class and the poor). In europe, after many years of socialism under Mr. Francois Mitterand, many rich people left the Country for another one where they would not be tax as much, so the monaies run out, so now they are going broke, most of it has to do with the health care system, unfortunately it has been in place for so long that it is part of the Gvt. Europe is having more difficulty than even the media knows!! It is bad, real bad, I came here for real freedom, didn't we vote these people into office? did we not hire them to represent us? Why should they have a system of health care better than we have? They are OUR hires!! We should demand the same kind of health care!! That would be OK with me, not the one that Mr. Obama has scripted for the citizens of this great Country!! We are not Europe!!! Lets ask our Gvt to provide us with a health care system comparable to the Senate, Congress, President. We are worth it! Lets do it!

First of all we dont have a health care system. We have a bunch of systems that dont work well together. Unfortunately we are going to have to go to a single payer plan , since individuals and business cannot afford an 11% per annum increase in health care costs. These costs go directly to hospitals insurance companies, and drug companies. If you would like to be a rich republican, invest in these. I do not think the rich can be taxed more and pay for it, since their are so few rich and so many poor. We have been making classic economic mistakes since the end of ww2, they are finally catching up with us.

And we don't have an auto industry either, we've got a number of auto companies that don't work well together. In fact, they are in competition with each other.

Same thing with the electronics industry, food industry, appliance industry, etc.

It's called free market enterprise, and that's what has driven America to the highest standard of living ever known to man.

What we need in the health care industry is less government and more private sector competition to drive improvements, increase efficiency, lower cost, and ultimately deliver a better product at a lower price to the consumer.

Besides, why should government take money away from some people in order to give free health care to others? What's wrong with everyone paying his own way?

You are right about the free market. Unfortunatley there is none in health care. A University gets a grant, from the taxpayers, develops a drug. Sells it at a profit for the researchers, and the university. The drug companies mark it up 20,000%. We buy it, at retail, no credit for the fact that tax dollars developed it. It gets shipped overseas where it is sold far cheaper to citizens of other countries who paid nothing to develop it. That is not free market. I pay alot for other peoples health care, I also pay for fire protection, and other services that cannot be compensated on a free market system.
