You and Obama think alike.
Actually, sakic is correct.
Willing buyer, willing seller is the only real solution at this point.
Insurance companies are able to be directed to cover anything government directs them to cover - and then let “the rich” pay - that is, anyone who can afford the new cost of their policies.
They are an anachronism and a mere extension of government at this point.
Under the willing buyer/seller scenario you’d be asked “it costs this much, do you want to buy it?”
Under the scenario you mock you’ll be told “Wait in line and maybe you’ll get it”
People don’t even know what insurance is anymore. They think they are buying a maintenance plan where everything little thing is supposed to be payed by somebody else. Somebody else = evil corporations. A large majority of Americans are TV addicted, celebrity worshipping fools and a collapse and Civil War is well deserved.
Obama does not want to get rid of health insurance. He wants a different form of it. Before health insurance our healthcare system was far better.
