The United States has turned into a real pisser of a country when it allows the nitwit Palooza to pass a bill that will jail you if you don't agree with her policies! Ie:her health care. The worst part is that millions of other nitwits agree with her. Now do you get what Obamas change was all about? Socialism. GOd help Amerika.

THe ceo of Emerson Electric, a 32 billion dollar company in St. Louis Mo is looking to expand more and more in China and India due to the stupidity of the current administration and congress. I suppose ther will be those who will blame the company for being greedy however in reality it is the due to the socialistic policies that the corporations cannot afford to remain here. When its all said and done you know the knuckle draggers will blame the corporations and not the government and the idiots that vote for the stupid policies. Than they will expect OBAMA to give them jobs. Well good luck.

It's really bizarre how we are ready to turn the entire health care system upside down just so we can make sure uninsured are covered.

Why can't we START by giving uninusured some options on health coverage? Most people would be okay with that and then we can see how that really impacts the system, costs and so on.

10:52 not bad but GIVE! How about we make sure they are working first place, and I mean real work. I'll give you a case in point, I have an acquaintance he is a school bus driver. Now he has a bit of money put by, and he drives a school bus. He does that in part because he does not want real work. With his spare income he day trades. His employer offers medical insurance but he will not buy it, yet he is constantly buying cigarettes and beer. In this case this is all about choices. He has health insurance available, he could buy it, but he prefers cigarettes, beer, and a few bucks left over to day trade with.

Now should we give him insurance?

Now guess what - he is not unusual. I know several people where I change the job, the ways they waste money and you get essentially the same story.

so while I prefer your idea, it really galls me that I get up every day, work a job I cannot stand and that I hate, and have hated for 15 years simply because with it I can earn a decent living. And i am suppose to part with my income and share it with people like my acquaintance? When he works 70+ hours each and every week at a job he cannot stand then maybe I'll consider it. When he is away from home 40+ weeks a year, working to put food on the table, maybe I'll consider it.

But the idea I should give something to someone really galls me. I want to see them work first. And frankly I have never met a single solitary hard luck case that wasn't a lazy screw-up and brought his misfortune on himself.

We need to have ways the self-employed and uninsured can get affordable health insurance, but we are going to the other extreme with the Pelosi so-called plan.

I have always thought the way to go is to have the Government as in an association of all States (not the Federal Government as their is no authority in the Constitution to do it) to buy a catastrophic insurance policy for each citizen.

That way you remove the large, large liability of individual insurance companies and you have the largest possible risk pool to spread the risk across.

This is a first step which should greatly assist those who have individual polices and fear being priced out of coverage if they have an on-going medical issue.

Like I said a first step, and it gives you something to measure many things with for later reforms.

I see where Openline is openly supporting the healthcare reform..just check out the ad by google for supporting the Democratic Campaign Comittee vote form at the top of this post.

How else could Openline run this website if it wasn't subsidized by Google thru ads?

Also, Openline doesn't choose the specific ads. Google does that.
