    Must be nice to HAVE insurance! I work for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, but since I am a part-time (32 hours/week) liquor store clerk, I have to wait a year and a half for health insurance.
    I didn’t work enough hours in FY 2011 (ending on June 30, 2012) to qualify because I started work in February 2012, so I have to wait until July 1, 2013 for health insurance.

    One out of every SIX Americans has no health insurance. What’s wrong with this picture? Every other industrialized nation on this planet considers universal health insurance as a human right. Only in America do people oppose it.

    You can’t live on other people’s money forever. It will eventually run out. Or haven’t you been paying attention to the last 5 years.

    Plus, many of the socialist Euro countries are quietly privatizing their healthcare systems again, because it bankrupted them.

    @Ashburn Stadium—-How does one consider something to be a "right’, or not a “right”? I can think of a lot of things I would like to be a “right” but aren’t.

    You haven’t been paying attention to the last 40 years apparently. Also whatever economic problems Europe is having it has nothing to do with health care and everything to do with malfeasance of their banks, just like here.

    Because the govt does such a great job with everything else, you want to give them control over health care too? Sure, because health care isn’t confusing enough. There must be some other way.

    Dr. Michael Livingston, our doctor when we lived in Canada, summed it up, “I really can’t see that I practice medicine any differently now that I no longer worry about being paid.” One nurse was all the staff he needed, since there was only one insurance company and only one set of rules to deal with.
    .
    Change “province” to “state” and “Canada” to “United States” and you have a very efficient health care program.-

    Some of us don’t have health insurance by choice. It’s quite a savings when you’re younger and can take the risk.

    You have a right to the work and efforts of others? How will that work?
