Did America have 'prosperity' before Healthcare reform?

No. We did not.

Since healthcare was a leading cause for bankrupcies...

**'Only in America: Bankruptcy Due to Health Care Costs' - James E. Dalen, MD, MPH - 08/04/09

"The article by Himmelstein in this issue of the The American Journal of Medicine documents that health care expenses were the most common cause of bankruptcy in the United States in 2007, accounting for 62% of US bankruptcies compared with 8% in 1981."

since 1981!

28 years BEFORE Obama was sworn into office.

I also enjoy Romney's ever-changing stances on issues. Since current Healthcare reform...

was BASED on Romney's healthcare reform when he was Gov. of MA!

Only once.

Shocking headline..... let me guess...... tomorrow's headline....... Romney attacks Obama's record.

This is the leading news of the DN. A million other things happened today. Violence in Syria, tensions with Iran, economy picks up speed, the Marine debacle..... plus hundreds other timely items... and DN leads with the same thing that Romney has been doing now for 6 years..... yet again.

It is either an indication of the agenda of the DN, or how isolated the readers of the DN are.

The media is benefting along with big business with this money, money, money thing. Just read the article and you get the jest of what it takes to win-MONEY! It's no longer the best and most qualified person for president, it's the one with the deepest pockets. What a shame. We as voters need to execise our right to vote and change this, we are a corrupted society and economy because we have let big businesses buy their way, and that my friends needs to stop or we will become second and third rate citizens in this world soon. Lets rid ourselves of the corruptness in politics voters!

"Did America have 'prosperity' before Healthcare reform?"

The answer is an resounding YES! Of course we have. Despite Pagan's attempt to paint America as a barren capitalist wasteland where only the rich have the comforts of life and the poor (or 'working class families' as the new, politically correct lingo goes) are forced to worked endless hours in dirty factories, the REAL story of America is a fantastic miracle!

Even our most impoverished citizens had access to healthcare through a myriad of government programs BEFORE the advent of Obama care. The overall standard of living in America has been better than anywhere else in the world. The economic freedom of America has blessed the entire globe with inventions that couldn't have come from any other place on earth. Government NEVER creates prosperity. Governments who are too involved in the people's business usually preside over decline.

I completely reject the idea and premise from people like Pagan who believe that America needs to be fundamentally changed. The Obama experiment is quickly coming to an end as people see what a dead end this president is taking us down.

For critics that feel the DN is giving Mitt Romney too much attention, the Republican Primaries are news. As the front-runner in most polls, Mitt Romney is news. Newspapers print news, the DN is not an exception. I've said before in this forum that I am a subscriber to the left tilting Los Angeles Times and even they have a Romney article and picture on their front page virtually every day (including 2 yesterday and 1 today with a second article and picture on page 1 of the Business Section).

Oh, btw, did you happen to see the Dec. 4, 2011 national Sunday newspaper supplement, Parade Magazine? The feature story was about the Romneys and the full front cover was a picture of Mitt and Ann Romney. Inside, there were internet links to family photos. Does this mean that Parade is controlled by the DN?

I wouldn't vote for Pagan, either.

(and I suspect there are a lot of other readers on here who wouldn't as well....)

Passion: just because you have it doesn't mean you're heading in the right direction.

Thank you for supporting a goverment option. :)

To claim that 'private insurance' was helping America...

while, AT THE SAME TIME, claiming people had healthcare coverage because of GOVERMENT PROGRAMS....

supports, by omission, that a public funded goverment option for healthcare is PREFERABLE, than private.

Private insurance, that:

Wow. Just keep on distarcting from the issue in hopes you will look better?

Why would I run...

for people who insult others, rather than address the issue?

That, is a juvinile response.

But, of course, this will be denied...

and all personal attacks at me, allowed.

Romney vs Obama

Give them both an IQ test for us to compare. Let's compare college transcripts and business experience. Let's compare donations to charities.

Romney scores a knock out.
