They've screwed up alot less than Corporate America. They have abandoned Reagan's "trickle down" economics for "piss on the poor" economics.

In their strive to boost their stock price and earn fat bonuses, they are eroding the middle class that actually keeps the economy afloat. Hope you enjoy all your millions of dollars when the the American dollar drops in value belwo the peso!

We don't have government health care, we have insurance run health care. Government makes law. We don't have bailouts we have loans, and we don't have death panels we have living wills and medical directives. Stop changing meanings to promote your argument.

They complain because they have health insurance, probably have an employer that pays for it, and don't want to see someone poor get what they have to work for.

On the other hand, if everyone was getting it as a benefit, their cries of socialism would quiet and their hands would be out, too.

I believe if everyone benefits, everyone pays something.

The problem is the insurance part. We should be paying for just the health care -- not insurance. Then you don't have people that are too poor to pay for health insurance having to make the choice of paying hundreds of dollars a year for something they may not use (insurance) and paying for something they need (food, housing, etc.) when there have very little money to begin with.

To top it all off the only health care they can probably afford comes with a high deductible and high out of pocket costs, so they end up paying for insurance AND health care when they are the people that can least afford either.

I take the highest deductable possible. Blue Cross, with a 10,000 dollar deductable. One hundred percent paid after ten grand. If my bill runs well over 10,000, the insurance company will pay, and the hospital and doctors will be glad to receive it. However on the other 10,000, I'll negotiate. I'll claim hardship and cut the bill more then 50%. If they give me a problem, I'll pay them a few dollars a month for the rest of my life. They always deal, and I receive the benefit of a low premium. Know the rules and play the loop holes.

That's good for you. How many poor people are in a position to do the same? How many hospitals and doctors will negotiate with someone that is not as well versed in the rules and has the time to play the loopholes? The fact is that the people that can afford it the least end up having the greatest portion of their income going toward health care. There is no wiggle room for them like there would be for you if you needed a certain procedure that you negotiated down to a few hundred dollars -- they don't even have that.

I agree, that's why I believe in health care reform. Tell Republicans not to repeal it, fix it.
