    And anyone can troll. You could actually make an legitimate argument rather than spout single minded foolish rhetoric.

    But I guess you follow the ideals of der Fuhrer Hitler and Comrade Stalin right? Why else would you support reeducation and internment camps like the ones that you’ve discussed previously in this discussion board.

    Honestly, I’m so sick and tired of people like you coming on here and demeaning our LEGITIMATE objections to this Health Insurance Reform legislation. It is that SAME kind of narrow mindedness that you accuse your opponents of. That’s called being a hypocrite. That is so weird, that’s what you call your opponents too! You people will really do anything to forward you socialist agenda’s, wont you?!

    You do not have a right to health care, affordable or otherwise. You do not have the right to the life, liberty, or property of any individual, let alone doctors, nurses, and such. Just because government is currently getting away with this sort of nonsense on a massive scale does not mean that the American people are going to put up with it forever.

    This bill is blatantly unconstitutional. It will either be swiftly struck down (as soon as the first case is heard by the Supreme Court, which could take awhile) or there’s going to be some serious civil disobedience (or worse).

    Gentlemen, the notion of Robin Hood-style theft and redistribution within this bill is a notion of ignorance of the terms of the bill and an indication of not taking the effort to vet the math within it that proves it to be far more of an overhaul than a handout. It’s a bill about the reform of an existing, albeit now-dysfunctional, now-inefficient, and now-fraud-ridden system – a system responsible for the most fundamental of human essentials within a society that values life.

    Irrelevant. The vast majority of the fraud, waste, and abuse in the health care system is due to lack of competition and interference by government. Much of this would not survive real competition. By real competition I mean an actual free market where any individual can contract with any company in any state to obtain health coverage. This is FAR from what we have at the present time.

    What I’m really trying to say is that the best way to reform the ‘system’ is to eliminate interference in the free market and let us reform the system with our money.

    bravo6lima, I served at nortwestern intern program, I took my residencebat New York City Hospital and currently Detroit Beaumant. Bet I saw more blood then you did tough guy. Or should I call you Beaver. (Would you like a sandwich Beav) Yea, go ahead and spend some Brass BEAV!

    You’re incorrigible. All you do is demean people.

    “I served at nortwestern intern program”… I’m sorry, from your selfish, self righteous rhetoric, I only see that you know nothing of service but everything of self.

    You’re pathetic and you make me sick. Begone Troll!

    I commend you for the idea and in theory, free markets should and usually do work. In practice, free markets of “essentials” are always gamed by greed for profit at the detriment of the greater universal good. Examples, you ask? I’m glad you did? 1996 Telecom Reform Act – result: WorldCom, Qwest, et al and now their CEOs are in jail and their employee’s 401Ks are gone 2001: Enron – result: similar story plus rolling blackouts in Cali and the forced bankruptcy of Pacific Gas & Electric and sky-high electric rates and jailings of the C-level execs, 2003-05: Finance reform – result: collapse of wall-street and some 2nd-world countries…along with your and my financial security and a lot of your and my friends jobs. Shall I continue? Free markets work best for consumables like computers and cars but not for the essential fundamentals of life and society, like health care, etc.

  • bravo6lima 11/07/2009 3:01pm

    To be honest,I’d rather be allowed to shop for health care across state lines.An open market would more than likely force these providers to lower thier prices if they had a bit of compitition.That would be way too logical for marxists to grasp.

    bravo6lima, thank you for your service. I only wish I had the opportunity to serve in the same capacity you did. I know that we all do our part. Often times, sitting behind he desk, I wished I was out there with the war fighter, but in the end, what we all do is important. I wish you the best.

    Vietnam 67-71 three tours of combat duty myself with my three brothers. Those of us that swore to uphold the constitution with our liver have more respect for it and a better understanding of those who came before us. FREEDOM is won be each generation. Let us hope today’s Americans can carry on.
