the whole d... world has gone nuts. do away with the commie dicator and do away with obamycare. let the companes go back to paying part of you healtcre. give back the 718 billion the ommmie stole from medicare, give back th 4.6 trillon stolen from ss and people without healthcare can do the same as i did. they can pay their own to the age of 65 or join a company who has healthcare. i worked and paid for mine untill i got a job that had health care. why not stop this commie give give me give me, i do not want to work mentality or maybe you can call it mentally ill.

Looks like some people forgot to read the articke.
Looks like some people don't understand who pays for healthcare now, or what happens when someone with no insurance, no money,(even no name or address) goes to the emergency room.
If you don't understand healthcare delivery in this country please get educated before you speak - or risk sounding stupid

Actually, this is a good idea. One of the major problems in medical care is that the hospitals and medical offices are refusing to actually help prevent medical problems until they are life and death, and very costly, procedures. If they'd have to pay for more of it themselves, them maybe they'd think twice about ignoring symptoms until there is an ambulance involved.

How is it my responsibility to pay for other people's healthcare? That is what medicaid is, it's a branch of welfare. I have to pay health insurance to cover those that live at the doctor's office, and be taxed to cover medicaid as well. How is this FAIR! In the socialistic scheme, fair is not an option.
