If the question is that 30-40 million Americans are without health insurance coverage (voluntarily or involuntarily - an important distinction), then there is a cheaper, more manageable alternative out there that doesn't involve the Federal government poking its nose into areas where it is constitutionally forbidden to poke!

The young people who decline to have health insurance are one part of the puzzle - since we cannot let them die when they get sick and don't have health insurance. The other piece of the puzzle is those who cannot afford health insurance - those are the ones who should be helped (assuming that these are people who are LEGALLY in this country and who are willing and able to actually work for a living). I'm not ready to surrender our nation's sovereignty to illegals on any day of any year!

Certainly tort reform is a big component. This would remove the necessity of doctors having to run unnecessary tests that tie up our time and resources in an effort to protect themselves from predatory lawsuits.

I just cannot shake the memory of a lawsuit our firm was defending in which a woman was suing her physician's group for malpractice because her child was born severely disabled. Investigation proved that the woman had gonnorrhea - not once, not twice but three times during her pregnancy with this child AND she continued to drink and smoke throughout as well!

At what point do we start demanding that people take responsibility for their own stupid decisions?

Another blue week for the USA.

I appreciated the fine post, and the wonderful Savkobabe's comment.

It is hard to suggest the Democrats "won" something here. Very difficult to see "victory" in this regard.

Usually, political victories come when you convince a majority of the People your plan is worthy, and then pass the item with a positive mandate. The opposite happened here. The more the Democrats, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, etc., tried to sell this folly, the more they lost.

Their turning to increased lies, bribery, manipulation, etc., to squeak this by, is a form of failure. Especially when one realizes they had a massive Majority to pass it anytime over the year. It was and is ugly, and although it may now be passed, it is very difficult to call it a victory.

These Democrat Partisans in the Media, for example; Ms. Connolly of WAPO, were all certain of the political victory in the passage of a Party line Slush Fund called the Obama-Pelosi Stimulus. This is now considered a liability. Democrats don't even call it 'stimulus' anymore, trying to use a term called the "recovery act". They did the same with Global Warming, and now will only use the term "climate change" to describe that mantra based on fashion and emotion.

In a short time, we may see this Health Care Reform be titled something else. The damage control continues in massive fashion. It could be honestly titled the "biggest tax increase in US History".

Many of us knew this was coming, when the fears over Iraq grew a reactionary mentality amongst those who claimed to be 'conservative' and repeatedly undermined our Nation's best interests in Washington after 2004. It was regretful to see many Sideline Pundits lose control, grow irresponsible, and grow an emotive debasing of the Republicans, and enabled a disastrous Democratic Party.

We have to unite for 2010, or this is all pointless. The damage is already considerable, and will get worse. We can only 'hope' it can be 'changed'.
