Good thing the GOP keeps blocking healthcare reform, so this nonsense can continue. That's much better than the universal health care that Hawaii has had for 40 years and that has not caused some sort of apocalypse there.

Good thing OBAMA had a year of Complete control and couldn't pass the fraud health care bill.
Lets also consider how many people live in Hawaii and the money they take in from tourists ect that could pay for U.H.C.
lets also consider Mass has goverment run H.C. and while H.Care rose just under 8% nationwide, Mass H.C. rose 14%,almost twice as fast.also consider at least 3/4 of Americans dont want the goverment, Obama/Pelosi version of Health Care.
I know liberals like you are against profit,but,lets no overlook the Fact Obama bailout Wall street with much more money,ACORN gets millions in stimulus to teach undercover folks how to pimp their hooker and hide the money so they can collect their government welfare

This is why health insurance reform is not a solution. The insurers are the problem. The fix is simply Medicare for All - HR 676!
