Re: More on Health Care

Oh he can't be right. The federal guberment making decisions on cancer issues and how much treatment you can have sounds to much like a death panel. It has already been "proven" that is not going to happen.

Re: More on Health Care

Many (most?) insurance companies already have a 'lifetime benefits' clause.

Same thing.

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

Re: More on Health Care

But not based upon a particular disease, or at least that I know of. A $3m life time is a $3m life time whether your chances are good or bad.

Re: More on Health Care

I like Mr. Rogers enthusiasm and commitment. Also great to see him pull information from the years when this country was founded. Founded by patriots and individuals like that man sad they were innovators. Oh shnap...this thread was by pappy we both like the same video.

Re: More on Health Care

Was that a dog that ran behind him towards the end?

Ok, I'll give props to Rogers for speaking up like he did, but IMO I think he missed a bigger opportunity. He spent his time making accusations and railing against the democrat's health care bill, but did not once offer any suggestions for alternative solutions. He spoke about how there are more opportunities to fix health care, but he never offered a single one himself in that speech. Sadly, in the end that's what's happening overall in Washington. Each side will gladly slam the other party's proposals, yet really have nothing constructive to add or offer much in terms of real solutions for anything. So for that, nothing was really accomplished in that speech. If you're going to point out faults in the bill, that's fine, great, do it. But don't just leave it at that, because in the end no one will listen if you don't add something constructive, or offer alternative ideas for people to consider.

That's my take on it.

You hit it on the head.

Why is it that there is so much whining now, when there has not been one iota of interest to significant reform previously?

After all, Republicans have controlled the White House for 20 out of the last 29 years.

Let's tell the rest of that story,

Reagan was opposed for all 8 years by the house and 2 years by the senate
Bush was opposed by both house and senate for all 4 years
Bush Jr was opposed by the house for 2 years and Senate for 4 years

I will give you the fact that Clinton was opposed by both the house and senate for 6 years

With any luck, Obama will only get 2 years un-opposed

Re: More on Health Care

Yeah, let's do tell the whole story.

Are you saying that Reagan and both Bush's were opposed in their effort's toward significant health care reform?

Oh wait.

They never even proposed anything.
