It's unconstitutional. The government should regulate the insurance agencies and oil and gas prices.

Is it called cash. Without insurance inflating costs through a guranteed system, the free market could work. It's called cash, and even the poor would still be helped. The medical complex wouldn't have been able to artifally inflate. Prices would be closer to what people could afford. Doctors and hospitals wouldn't have a choice. They would be like all the other free market operations working for the customer and making things more affordable. Those out of reach would be replaced with those in reach. Not much different then shopping for a car. I think the system will go through pain before it can fix itself. Those with a high IQ in business will fair the best.

Over the course of the past three weeks, Occupy Baltimore has begun a directly democratic dialogue, and considering their peaceful and respectful assembly, the group requests that the city allow them to maintain this peaceful democratic space, as city government counterparts have in Philadelphia and Washington DC. Representatives of Occupy Baltimore, assisted by the Maryland chapter of the ACLU, are currently in discussion with the Department of Parks and Recreation about possible negotiations on the proposed deadline and the overnight stay limitations. These limitations present a clear concern for the Occupation, which has a complex and pre-existing infrastructure, including dedicated teams for media, food, direct action, outreach, security, and other working groups that require consultation and consideration, as well as physical space onsite.

Occupy Baltimore is committed to maintaining a vibrant, safe space in McKeldin Square as the movement continues to grow an organic infrastructure of democratic representation, arts, culture, and Political debate while still allowing the public to pass through McKeldin Square, and inviting them to join in the occupation and associated activities.

Occupy Baltimore recognizes that their requests are outside of the box for the city's existing permit system, but encourages the city to work alongside peaceful and respectful demonstrators to create a legal space where all voices can be heard.

Only those who fail to read oppose the plan and they can't be convinced to read or think for themselves.

The only people who face a tax/penalty are those folk who are gaming the system and forcing us to pay for their medical care.
