The only way for everyone to be happy about this "Insurace Reform" is for the goverment to regulate and keep there hands out of it. All they need to do is for Congress to pass 4-5 New laws
1) only Americans Citizens can have health care without money up front
2) Let Insurace co. do buisness in all 50 states (flood the free market with compitition)
3) Make it against the law to turn someone away for pre-existing problems.
4)Cap all mal-pracitce suites and it would stop all those stupid commercials
I find it funny that with the 4 or 5 bills presented now not one of them mention even one of the above solutions. That is why I don't believe they are after Reform but how much more money they can get from you

Why doesnt Iria pay for healthcare? He/ She is all for it. Since most of America isnt for Obamas healthcare, Iria finds stories to persuade people to be as stupid as he is.
Democrats are patriotic for questioning the government and Republicans are anti America for doing the same thing.

Sentenced to death on the NHS

Patients with terminal illnesses are being made to die prematurely under an NHS scheme to help end their lives, leading doctors warn today.


By Kate Devlin, Medical Correspondent
Published: 10:00PM BST 02 Sep 2009

In a letter to The Daily Telegraph, a group of experts who care for the terminally ill claim that some patients are being wrongly judged as close to death.

Under NHS guidance introduced across England to help doctors and medical staff deal with dying patients, they can then have fluid and drugs withdrawn and many are put on continuous sedation until they pass away.

But this approach can also mask the signs that their condition is improving, the experts warn.

As a result the scheme is causing a “national crisis” in patient care, the letter states. It has been signed palliative care experts including Professor Peter Millard, Emeritus Professor of Geriatrics, University of London, Dr Peter Hargreaves, a consultant in Palliative Medicine at St Luke’s cancer centre in Guildford, and four others.

“Forecasting death is an inexact science,”they say. Patients are being diagnosed as being close to death “without regard to the fact that the diagnosis could be wrong.

“As a result a national wave of discontent is building up, as family and friends witness the denial of fluids and food to patients."

This health care iscussion is anything but. Nothing wrong with disagreeing with each other, but it is praying for too much if I ask that people be able to discuss their differences in opinion without the anger and name calling/labeling?

I guess it is.

Its almost as if some don't even want to have the discussion....which would make me think Insurance Lobbyists are working hard to get proponents as riled up as possible.

Who else would there be that would prefer we not have this discussion...that would hurt the pocket of insurance companies.

Seriously, you think people aren't reacting with anger at these meetings? Even FauxNews shows how angry folks are at some townhall meetings.

I recall the Cancer Survivor asking a question & the Congresswoman decided it was time to make a cell phone call!

Now that Obama has called out his thugs, it's just a matter of time before someone gets hurt.

The blood will be on Obama's hands.

Tell the right we're taking away Medicare/Medicaid and they'll be just as angry. Ironic, isn't it.

One woman stated she didn't want government in her medicine, and the very next line was ..."and don't touch my Medicare!"

Anything the current admin is suggesting is not where near as government run as Medicare.

Sad, but not surprising..

I attended a town hall meeting here in early August..not quite as pathetic as the woman in the wheelchair..but the amount of fear/hate being tossed around by the right was ridiculous.
A lady was reading (actually yelling) prepared "concerns" from a piece of paper that was provided to her by CPR..Conservative Patients Rights, which is the Rick Scott group paid for by the major health insurance companies.
Death panels, subsidized abortion, rationing, pulling the plug on grandma..it's all untrue. But many people would rather believe it then do even a little research.
Amazing..and pretty sad.

I have never seen such negative, dysfunctional behavior by supposedly God Fearing Republicans. These people are not acting like citizens. Would the founding fathers that they like to reflect on approve of this type of behavior? I seriously doubt it.

"Opponents were so vehement, and intent on shouting down supporters of health care reform, that they shouted down their own kind! The point is, a democracy is not about shouting down people, but discussing calmly.

You do not need to be a liberal to see that the conservatives at these town meetings are engaged not in discussing, but in shouting down people, with the full intention of cutting off any intelligent discourse."

Heck, this type of behavior is very similar to the way Sean Hannity and Bill O'reilly treat their guests. They should both be thrown out of their jobs. They do not represent proper respect to people that come on their show unless the guest are placating what ever it is that they are Ranting about. The people that disrupt these town hall meetings are of the same character as these two, and the like of Rush Limbaugh.
