@ tony: It was the same group who never had insurance except it was one way to sell socialized medicine to the gullible. The intent was to plan for a complete take over. The Kennedys had planned on switching Americans over to the dark side long ago. Ted couldn't finish the job. He needed a scumbag like obama to finish his dirty work.

There were plenty of folks who wanted to stay on their health plans but now there are no options, at a certain age....you have govt. care. Now that it is bankrupt....it's time to roll everyone else in until the company collapses or becomes another commie country.

You are the simple minded fool who will gladly by led by the nose ring into socialism because you're too stupid and lazy to manage your life on your own.

The ignorant and gullible see nothing wrong with a govt. take over of our liberties. The ignorant and gullible are so easily swayed by the propaganda promoted by the liberal elite.

LBJ had talked about medical care for all, but who tried after him?

Harry Truman / fought tooth and nail by a republican Congress, and the first to sign on to Medicare upon its signature by LBJ in 1965.

Kennedy got on board long after the inception of universal health care dummy - but don't let facts dissuade you.
