    Yeah, we can then depend on the GOP to take care of “us”. Right?

    You know, if the health care system that Obamacare is poised to replace was truly a good one, I could understand the vitriol. I understand there are many problems within Obamacare, but anyone who believes the previous system was somehow not worth changing has never been truly sick. Good for you, but it’s hard to know how well (or poorly)
    a system works if you never used the system.

    A handful of people around here keep saying “the poor can go to the ER”. It took me a little while to understand why; I mean, they claim to be fiscal conservatives and to favor personal responsibility, but the “go to the ER” plan runs counter to both- it discourages regular checkups to maintain one’s health, and it’s actually more expensive to the rest of us.
    But then I realized the one reason why they’d be for it- it ensures that the poor suffer. And to some people around here, that’s what matters the most.

    “There will always be people who choose to not pay for healthcare. Forcing it on them won’t work.”

    You hit the nail on the head there. Congress and the politicians whose health coverage is fully paid by the taxpayers just won’t let it go. It’s clear they have no intention whatever to make any change that would force them to pay their way.

    I’m retired, on a very limited fixed income. I pay for my health care. When are they going to step up?

    Agreed. Back to my continued argument for Single Payer. Have a national sales tax to pay for it. This way, everyone contributes, whether they want to or not.

    That’s an interesting angle — I never thought of that.
    But then all the evidence serves to prove it.

    That’s the best plan I have heard offered. And the simplest. But you know what they say’ if you want to gum up a plan, first you have to form a committee.’
