This is the third story I have seen like this since the Supreme Court started the hearings on Monday. The point is that there is a better way to do this rather than giving the government control to force people to buy something.


You may wish to read about the Premier of Newfoundland choosing to come to Florida for his open heart surgery. He was asked why he didn't stay in Canada for the procedure. He only said it's his business. Sounds like a major hypocrite to me.

The Obama healthcare bill is set up to have insurance companies eventually out of the picture. Why not allow companies to compete across state lines? Competition drives prices lower. We can keep the quality of healthcare that attracts people from all over the world and still solve the insurance problem. And by the way, I still haven't heard why people are opposed to tort reform. Isn't there a point (to borrow a phrase from Barack Obama) where trial lawyers have made enough money?


Another demographic which has benefitted from ACA/Obamacare:

Young men and women with pre-existing conditions serving LDS missions who can now stay on their parent's policy.

Do you democrats really believe that republicans are against these people getting health care? The issue is whether or not the government should force Americans to buy health insurance. The system is broken, but giving it to the government is not necessarily the best solution, especially considering how it was passed.
