There's no mention of tort reform in your article. Why not?

There's no mention of buying healthcare insurance across state lines. Why not?

Stop fronting for the cram-and-jam. It's as disingenuous as it is disgusting.

Is this a joke? Americans oppose what you are doing to the healcare system:

Forty-nine percent of voters nationwide say that passing no healthcare reform bill this year would be better than passing the plan currently working its way through Congress. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 39 percent disagree and say the current effort is better than doing nothing.

Obamacare will open the door to even more massive fraud. Obamacare will mean rationing. Obamacare will mean lengthy waits for routine care, daily waits for serious illnesses. Obamacare will be the final nail in America's coffin. The costs will be inconceivable. Free Americans need to separate from the socialists and form a new free nation without socialism.

I've watched many of the Blue Dogs and peple like Senator Baucus work extremely hard to find a workable compromise to advance the process and keep the bill from collapsing. Yet, for all that constructive slogging, same wish to pretend that they are "obstructionist".

Medicare reimbursements are to low to be viable. Too many doctors, professionals and institutions are outright not accepting new patients, and slowly shedding the older ones.

Government does not have the ability to over-rule fair market rates, no matter how hard it tries.
