Health care reform is not a luxury, rather it is essential! Medicare cannot continue for 15 more years without it. Full Story

Marie Hagerty and Nancy Zervakos should form a club. They both want the proverbial free lunch. Not only should healthcare be really really cheap, it must also be really really great. Grandpa is dieing and his family can't afford $2300 per month so...let somebody else pay for it. After all, what kind of society doesn't want to pay for everybody else's family bills?

Meanwhile Nancy is divorced, disabled, 50, and saddled with kids she can't afford. Gosh darn, why doesn't somebody else step up and pay her bills? Its not Nancy's fault she has those kids and no father to support them, right?

So lets pass Obama-care ASAP. Lets not even read the bill again. Just make sure not to call it socialized medicine (even though it is) and whatever you do, don't say that the "public option" is really nothing more than taxpayers footing the bill.

"Forty-six million Americans are uninsured." One wonders how many of these people are illegally here.
"No American should have to be uninsured." Agreed-As long as they are legal citizens of this country. Illegal immigrants should not be covered; they don't need any more rewards for breaking the laws of this country by emigrating here illegally.
Although illegal immigrants may not be the majority of people in this country that are uninsured, their numbers are a percentage of the uncovered population that can be controlled, if the Federal government wishes to do so by enforcing it's immigration laws.
This country needs to stop being the medical, health, and hospice care system for Mexico and other countries, period. The U. S. has enough of it's own legal citizens to take care of, and these other foreign countries should take care of their own citizens for a change.

Hey check out the heailh care system in Norway before you go slaming a national healthcare system.

If the insuranse companies and Drug companies we not ripping us off then we wouldn't need to do this but greed has made healthcare cost too much.

Norway has one of the strictest immigration policies in the world. Illegal immigrants get sent back on the first boat available.

If you want to emulate Norwegian healthcare, you first have to copy their immigration policy.

Good luck on that. Our open borders are one of the reasons national healthcare will fail and must be defeated.

Medicare is going belly up. It's a PERFECT example of the failure of a single payer system.

Being from PV, you probably have never had to experience the posibility of going bankrupt due to a health condition.

It makes NO SENSE to think that the Govt can fix health care. Most doctors refuse to take Medicare or MediCal already. That's because the govt is inept running health care.

How odd, I do not have and children to support and am not on anyone' charity. Quite self sufficient. Howver the emergency rooms are seeing fewer people using them for primary care with their welfare cards. Don't know who you are Tome from Palos Verdes, but we should all stick with the facts.
