    You are an idiot if you believe the government does not already play a large part in Healthcare already.

    Hey genius, I guess you missed the part where congress has been trying to correct the mistake with medicare for decades now but right-wingers keep trying to block it as they are now.

    whether a student graduates from school is the responsibility of the government. To blame it on the government and claim it is the government’s responsibility to make people learn, sounds kind of socialist.

    as far as the insurance laws, maybe you should study up on the fraud that was being committed before they were created.
    They made organized crime a lot of money.

    People seem to think Health Care will be handed to them on a silver platter if the government gets involved. They think it will become “free.” Hah! Just let it get in, then sit back and listen to them throw a FIT when they see their income tax, sales tax, property tax and capital gains tax bills go skyward while their salaries go down because businesses will be paying taxes instead of paying THEM. (And the rest of us.)

    They have been brainwashed. Oh look big brother is good. He will take care of you. We only want what is best for you. They believe this despite the obvious facts that the government destroys every thing it touches, and these loons beg for more. They actually think they are the government like it was meant to be is the worst part. Gluttons for punishment. It is disturbing.

    I am actually not for government run health care but this is the worst argument against it I have ever read. I could list hundreds and hundreds of private businesses that have lost money to counter this. As someone who worked for a health insurance company I could even tell you stories that would make you think the private sector should not be handling health care also. You can’t compare apple and oranges.

    If it’s capable of making money reasonably and harmlessly, there is no need for the government to run it. The private sector can do it better.
    That’s the point of nationalizing things. Either it can make a profit too well, at the expense of the American people.. like Health Insurance squeezing profits out of patients lives..
    Or it just can’t turn a reasonable profit and needs to be done. Like the post office, public transportation and the school system.

    It wouldn’t be any different. It’s a money pit to line their greedy pockets and an end run around the constitution. Everyone should read the obamacare proposal and stop drinking that damn Kool Aid.

    So you say our military is bad?

    That is what happens when something actually gets funded well instead of right-wingers wanting to cut its budget.

    public option does not equate to a government run industry except in the minds of the naive.

    the only difference between your type and the so called “Kool Aid drinkers” is the “Kool Aid drinkers” aren’t willing to sell the lives of their fellow country men for the benefit of big corportations.

    BTW the health care industry has had how long to prove they could fix things and haven’t done so yet?
    Obama getting into office wasn’t the beginning of politicians trying to fix this problem.

    I would rather see government waste than profits going to the rich. It’s unfortunate, truly, that our only options are these. But, under a free market capitalist economy; that’s what you get.

    I agree, there are so many ways to reform health care, to bring the costs down and even improve delivery, without the government running it. Ever notice that health care costs have gone up as government involvement got more intense?

    i agree, lets abolish ALL government run programs. You have a parent/grandparent over 65? Do away with medicare, and if they cannot pay for their own health care, tough luck. And forget the post office, heck they are worthless, so forget about mailing anything for a lousy 44 cents, take your bills to fedex or ups and pay ten dollars. And forget public transportation, walk those five miles or more to work. I could go on, but you get the idea, and hey, i’m behind you 100%. And while we’re at it, lets forget the VA—those who volunteered for the military knew they could be shot, so if they get hurt, too bad. Maybe you could be the one who had to tell their kids “daddy isn’t coming home”. And if your house catches on fire, there will be no fire department because, heck, it’s your house and so you put out the fire. I’m with you all the way, government sucks and we should ban it and all laws too, and only the ones with guns will rule. Yeah, you have the right approach, all right. I can’t figure out why you aren’t president instead of that socialist commie fascist muslim obama.

    1) I’ll give you this one.

    2) Medicare/Medicaid–talk to Bush about this one. Both were fine until Bush gutted them of money to try and pay for the Iraq War, since he wasn’t raising the funds (taxes) necessary to pay for the war. That’s right, stuff Republicans like to do costs money, too.

    3) Veterans Affairs–Again, talk to Bush. He gutted this program of money as well to…again…help pay for the Iraq War. This problem has since been fixed by a bill pushed forward by then-Senator Barack Obama and Colin Powell.

    4) States handle the school system. Attacking this kind of takes away from the argument that we should give states control of anything, as this very Republican state could not spend its money wisely enough to get their students to graduate.

    5) So you have a problem with a government agency that is running well? Would you rather it waste money?

    6) Is that the problem with the oil industry? You believe that if they weren’t afraid the government was going to take their money, they would even it out more and not try to make it all at once? Are you sure you understand how Capitalism works?

    7) Your complaint about federal regulation in the insurance companies is actually a complaint against state rights. You can’t get Calif. insurance because it is run under California rules; which are handled differently than Texas rules. To give you the ability to buy insurance across state lines, you are essentially asking for federal interference to better ensure more uniformity and to make sure the insurance company doesn’t cheat you because you are in a different state and can’t say jack about it.

    Unless you would prefer that the insurance company can cheat you and you can’t do jack about it?

    8) Actually, they could afford those homes. The $ 3 trillion price tag of the Iraq War devalued the dollar, which in turn led to a cascade of failures in our economy. One of those failures is that a lower value for the dollar forced businesses to try and hold onto more of them so they could afford to stay open; thus forcing them to lay off employees so they could save on payroll.

    It turns out those employees are also bank lendees. They got the loan when they had a job capable of being able to afford the loan; then lost that job when the business had to lay them off.

    9) I’ll give this one.

    10) Again, a state issue. If you have a problem with public transportation, that is an argument for taking it away from irresponsible states.

    11) Yeah, that’s a problem. The government underestimated the want people have to spend money in a recession. Who’d be stupid enough to think people would want to hold onto money in a recession?

    In fact, it is so bad that now Kia, a private company, wants to continue the Cash for Clunkers program; and is offering $ 3500 in savings if you go and buy one of their cars. That will show the government how stupid it was!

    The main purpose is to provide competition for the insurance agencies, to make sure they keep their quality high and their prices low.

    My understanding is that Medicare’s administration costs are low, compared to such costs in the private sector. Have you heard that as well? I thought that its financial problems are mainly due to the fact that baby boomers are getting old. Private insurers can deal with that by raising their premiums. Medicare will need to do the equivalent.

    Regarding number 7 — if we eliminate those nasty regulations, aren’t you worried that all the insurance companies will move their offices to South Dakota, and prosper under that state’s “screw the consumer” policies? (That’s what the credit card companies did, right?)

    One thing we agree on: I wouldn’t want to send my kids to school in Dallas either.
