Wrong, history doesn't always repeat its self. Don't bet on history for all your answers.

Eighty five percent of all private business goes down the tube within 5 years. Government doesn't stop its services based on profits. That's a good thing.

No, a gutless shirker wants free everything. It's what all fleabaggers, socialists, and putrid progressives demand. Bet you're a pedophile too.

Health care was we know it is becoming a thing of the past. Insurance covere is becoming less standardized despite attempts by the federal government to make it so. There may be universal coverage but there will be less services covered and less physicians who will opt in to treat the pateints with little reimbursement. The best approach for patients is to plan and save for their own healthcare. Relying on the government for anything is a poor choice. Health savings accounts are very popular and a good financial decision for many reasons. Seeking out physicians who take cash pay also is a value. Although it seems strange to pay for office visits, in the end it becomes more affordable and you get better care and more access to M.D.'s It is not that the doctor chooses to treat you better, it is more that they limit the size of their practice to spend more time with patients. The current system is set up so that doctors get reimbursed based on how many patients they can see. In the end this leads to poor patient care. Obama's plan will make this worse.

It's amazing how differently two people can hear the same message.
Did you hear the stutter at about minute 1:05? That would be the one in which all the opposed "Well, mostly Republicans" delivery was made.
Did you happen to hear minute 1:25 of the first video? The few seconds spent on who is backing the choice made?
This "death panel" garbage is just that... garbage. Decide whether you want to support people who are not working or not. Step away from your political leanings long enough to be decisive about what you believe or stand for. Do you know where extending life begins? It begins every healthy day of your life. Extension of life shouldn't be left to the last 6 months of our lives. Are we truly that backwards thinking?get your facts right
I love all the slamming of the English healthcare system. This is also one point of contention I have with certain US citizens. We're Anglophiles when it comes to language and the ethnicity of privledge. But we're Anglophobes when it comes to certain elements of what the government should or shouldn't be able to do.
Is the British Pound still stronger than the US Dollar?
I watched Inside Washington this morning. Charles Krauthammer went on one of his usual rants and said something akin to the UK healthcare being responsible for economic crisis there. THE BRITISH POUND HAS BEEN KICKING THE SNOT OUT OF THE US DOLLAR FOR AGES.
When they say "the 6 months of life" are they referring to after the diagnosis of a terminal illness?
We're okay with government insisting we have an insured vehicle... to protect our health from uninsured drivers. But we don't want government to tell us how we'll be insured, if government is paying the bill.
We're okay with government pulling over Latinos/Hispanics because they suspect illegal immigrants... who may threaten our lives. But we don't want government to tell us how long we're covered when we have a terminal illness the government is paying to treat.
We're okay with government outlawing smoking in public places... to keep our lungs healthier. But we oppose the government telling a lifelong smoker who needs government-funded, extended treatment for an illness connected to the lifelong habit.
Is this what we're talking about or are we talking about government stepping in and telling me what and for how long the insurance I'm covered by at work... the one I'm paying for... will cover me?
Stop being such hypocrites.
