    Statistics can be skewed in a number of directions. Yes I found both these reports. The official US report does not include the administrative cost of the programs which is considerable, the other one does. Its also not clear about what a family receives as it only seems to be talking about individuals. The one very good report stated that its about $168 a day for the average family and that is $21 an hour. Now after you subtract taxes from the average American salary you are getting about $21 an hour.

    So sorry TM but there is some merit to the argument that there is no incentive to work. Personally I am old and my wife and I live on a combined wage of $12.12 an hour. We accept no assistance from anyone nor have I ever in the past. My heathcare costs are approx. 20% of my income just for the insurance and supplements. But I am being told I am being given something and its a entitlement. After paying a small fortune into Social Security, Medicare and in taxes for my working life (14 year of age to 66) it just flat out sickens me to watch people who have contributed nothing to society nor ever will scream what we owe them so they can live. All I know for sure is the people with the food stamp cards in the line at the store in front of me buy much higher priced food products than I can afford.

    Anyone who believes the system is sustainable and isn’t broke needs to share with me whatever flavor Kool-Aid they are drinking.

    Its nice to see that even on Christmas Eve for some civility still does not exist. Name calling is the haven of those less gifted in verbal exchanges. Have a happy whatever it is you celebrate. Me while not a bible thumping moronic rightist will still give pause for the reason for this holiday.

    The only happy people I have come across so far are the ones who will get their policy subsidized. They of course are claiming they are saving money. But in reality others are just paying for the savings. My prescription drug plan went up 140% and I am still waiting on the other one but its going to be ugly I imagine.

    My rates only doubled. This could be the biggest transference of wealth since the 16th amendment.

    " I believe it is peace in our time" Neville Chamberlain, Sept. 30th 1938.
    We all know how well that went.

    What has happened was one of Jefferson’s worst fears. We are sinking into mob rule. 51% will control 49% with no respect given to the 49%. Just look at how both sides talk about each other and the comments on this site. There is no longer any middle ground, common respect or ideals. Just the agenda of one side or the other that is all important.

    Typical union job. One welder does 22 pipe welds in a shift and the other does 2 of which one fails the x-ray. Both get the same paycheck. In my experience of 42 years at it they breed nothing but mediocrity with a sense of entitlement.

    I can’t speak for other states but here in Colorado the rates are pretty insane. The Gov. site immediately directed me to the local states ones. In my neck of the woods (western Colorado) its $933 a month for a single male with $2000 deductible with copays who does not smoke and is 59 years old. My last premium before I went on Medicare (yes I am old) was almost $900 a month.

    Someone needs to explain to me how this is affordable healthcare.
