We need a solution - the current path will only make health care affordable for a very few.

We are a very smart and stupid society. Let's for once try something new, because for real, we do not understand the full implecations, when have we ever known actual outcomes.

Congress cannot legally require me to purchase insurance. It's unconstitutional. I want freeDOM not freeSTUFF. The dems can't buy my vote that easily. I am completely against increased govt. power and the notion that the government knows better than I do about what I need.

agreed, the health care plan in it's current state promotes yet more bloated government entities and higher taxes. Let's be smart about this and move to put a cap on frivilous lawsuits and payouts. That in itself would lower insurance costs for doctors. BTW, we can get a glimpse of what government run health care would look like - see Medicare (broke). How can anyone possibly think that the government can succeed at anything like this? Want some more examples? How about Social Security (broke), Amtrak (broke), GM(broke). Let's try something new and stop using tax dollars to fund failures for a change.

TROLL; A "Forum Troll" or "Message Board Troll" is a person who posts outrageous message to bait people to answer. Forum Troll delights in sowing discord on the forums. A troll is someone who inspires flaming rhetoric, someone who is purposely provoking and pulling people into flaming discussion. Flaming discussions usually end with name calling and a flame war.

A classic CureZone troll is trying to make us believe that he is a genuine skeptic with no hidden agenda. He is divisive and argumentative with need-to-be-right attitude, "searching for the truth", flaming discussion, and sometimes insulting people or provoking people to insult him. A Troll will usually attempt to reuse the same words of its opponents in hopes of turning it against them.

THIS TROLL ALSO SPENT 19 DAYS PLASTERING THE HEALTH CARE FORUMS WITH QUOTES AND LINKS FROM THE WRONG BILL, ALL WHILE CALLING OTHERS LIARS FOR QUESTIONING HIM.

You must be getting old TVMAN to be yawning all the time. But get use to it. After treating this guy with respect and even complimenting him a couple of times he decided to go on a forum that I wasn't on in the middle of the night and insult me. So from now on, he gets the "TROLL" post.
