  • If Congress cannot get a grip on their spending---how are they going to tell anyone else how they should run things? This is a nation that gave billions away to corporations who stole from us. I hardly think Congress knows how to run a darn thing and we should not rely on them to "fix" healthcare. If we want to "fix" healthcare we should rid ourselves of the sub-standard doctors and pill pushers. That is where the problem is, IMHO only of course.

  • Yeah Mike...I can just see good old Nancy in a fight for a pap test or breast x-ray. You are 100% correct but I bet they will not be on the program. Obamanomics strike again.

  • It's all cause and effect in our health care system. If it wasn't for greed, health care would be affordable without government help. Look at this:

    1. Patient goes to hospital and gets treated.

    2. Doctors mess up diagnosis

    3. Patient brings up malpractice lawsuit for a ridiculous amount and wins.

    4. Doctors insurance premium goes up.

    5. Doctor starts charging more.

    6. Medical companies see doctors increase in rates and raise cost of medical supply support.

    7. Doctors charge even more.

    8. And the cycle RE-cycles....
