I'm self-employed, which means that I have purchased private health insurance for the last 10+ years. since Obamacare passes, our premiums have gone up 50%. I now pay as much for my health coverage (a major medical policy, on a healthy family) as I do on my mortgage. Even worse, I expect it to go up again next year.

So called 'obamacare' is a failure only inasmuch as we really needed single payer health care, and this came far short. Republicans, bereft as they are of ideas of their own, circle like buzzards, hoping for a corpse to pick over. If they get one, they benefit short term. But they will be around again, because they're scavengers.

I am amused that this article quoted Senator Patty Murry of Washington. This brain surgeon once said that the reason that Osama Bin Laden was popular in Afghanistan was because he built schools for women and day care centers. Nobody who knows anything about the dominant religion in the area would say such a thing. Patty lives in her own little world, facts notwithstanding.

Republican's have put forward many ideas that would work; however, liberals need an excuse to impose socialized medicine on the people (necessary to subjugate the people and deprive them of freedom).

These ideas include:

Medical savings accounts,
Deregulation,
Require that all health care providers post their rates and charge everyone the same rate
Allow insurance companies to sell insurance across state lines
Allow a cafeteria style market where people only buy what the want to buy
Promote catastrophic care policies and Medical Savings Accounts.

The above reforms would use market forces to drive down costs and give people more control over their lives, finances and health care.

Obamacare is going to be a disaster. I know people who are going to be financially destroyed by Obamacare. The truth is that Obama doesn't care.

Shouldn't Mr. Rock wait until the "disaster" actually happens before talking doom for all? To hear him say it, it will only be a couple of weeks later anyway. He must know that health insurance companies will only allow changes that benefit THEM. No doubt deregulation is at the top of their list - it works so well in other industries like ocean cruises.

Can't believe we're entrusting our health care to a group of unelected officials who can jail us, and take our possessions.

This scandal of targeting, and punishing people they don't like should put some fear in all of us.

Nancy Pelosi-- Let's pass the bill then find out what's in it.

Silence is condoning disaster. Ninety eight percent of silent Austrians voted in Hitler.

No doubt about it: Corporations, the rich, corrupt politicians, and government won the battle here. American citizens lost big time. Misery begets misery. Perhaps the little guy will rise up and claim his constitutional rights and see the great Oz for what he is. We'll see.
