Proof? Over 1,000,000 Calif have recieved the Insurance Cancellations that Obama said would NOT happen to them. Most are Democratic voters.
NOT ONE Calif. Democrat who the Democrats used the majority to SEND to Washington has stood up for them. NOT ONE.
To this day I cannot figure out why the citizens and/or voters of California vote in the likes of Gerry Brown locally or Pelosi & Feinstein nationally. Maybe this will teach them a lesson. It's not all about that touchy feel good rhetoric.

Who cares about rhetoric. It is the results that matter.

When Brown took office he inherited a $27 Billion dollar deficit from his predecessor. A couple of years later it is now a surplus, continuing the proud American tradition of Republicans blowing a huge hole in the budget and then Democrats coming in and cleaning it up.

So what?

If you don't like deficit spending, then you don't like Ronald Reagan who set the record.

You don't like George Bush who was handed the first budget surplus in decades and turned it into the deficit we have now.

The reason Texas has lower insurance premiums than California is BECAUSE we've not set up these lame government-run 'exchanges.' When you kill competition, the price goes up.

Obviously you have never had a job with benefits. Let me explain. When a person has talents and skills that employers find valuable the employer will pay that person well and provide benefits such as health insurance, dental insurance, cafeteria plans, retirement benefits, paid vacations, bonuses, stock options and many other benefits as part of their compensation package. If under those plans the employer contributes money from their pay the employer does not and cannot keep that money. Just like the money taken in taxes the employer does not keep that money but in turn pays the suppliers of the benefits just as they pay the money deducted from you pay for taxes.
I understand your confusion since obviously you do not have talents and skills that employers find valuable. Sadly for you wearing a paper hat, being able to recognize pictures of food on a cash register, and the abilities to clean a bathroom, empty a grease trap and empty a trash bin into a dumpster are not rare and valuable skills.

The best thing that I see will come out of this "healthcare reform" debacle will be that some Americans will wakeup and take a real close look at "immigration reform". They may even insist that their congressmen actually read the bill.

If we want to increase the number of insured people one good place to start is to get more Americans working. Enforcing immigration laws would be a good start. Decreasing the labor pool would increase the need for employers to provide compensation packages that provide health insurance.
Providing tax incentives for employers to provide insurance is cheaper than giving subsides to the insurance companies to cover those who cannot afford insurance.
Look at Turner who claims that he will see a reduction of $20,000.00 a year. That is a huge subsidy.

Has nothing to do with it.

Like everything else in a country it's market driven- Texas has more companies completing and -apples to apples- Wyoming fewer.

Some people don't seem to want to face the truth that the cost of health insurance is based on the COST to provide the service. The insurance companies charge based on expected cost to provide the service plus profit for the investors. If you want to provide "affordable healthcare" you have to make the cost of healthcare affordable and not by having the taxpayer give money to insurance companies to guarantee that the make money no matter what the cost of thee service is.
