Here's health care in my weird mind:

say I spend $1 a month on insurance.

I can send it to the government, where I know that some 53 cents to go to debt repayment and social security, 18 cents to go the military, and the rest maybe goes to the something useful (including my health insurance)


I can send it to a corporation who feels no obligation to tell me how it is spent, but sure as hell seems to be making a huge profit and is well known for trying to deny coverage to people.


Under the recent bill, I can send to it to a corporation under threat by the government, getting the worst of both worlds. Yay :)

BUT, I'm happy with the provisions requiring insurers to stop cutting people off at the last minute. So, um, yah. hurrah?

So the price the insurance companies have foisted on the government to agree to cover people they normally would no longer cover or never cover in the first place is the government agreeing to force everyone to buy insurance from the same insurance companies. Essentially, this bill is charity for the insurance industry on the taxpayers dime enforced at the point of a gun by fed.gov... yet another bailout, though couched in plenty of progressive rhetoric so the bleeding hearts will swallow it hook line and sinker.
