    No! I’d have gone rhomboid.

    @liebyc – your premise is flawed…. there is no logic in politics.

    BTW, the health care system would work MUCH BETTER if all the politicians would simply decide we can sign onto the Civil Service plans at gov’t employee rates. That would greatly simplify the system. I pay my part and the employer pays the Govt part.

    The “Insurance Risk Pool” is artificially kept down to a small washtub when it should be as big as the entire country. Any single company (and the insurer thereof) has the exact same risk of hiring somebody who will be diagnosed with cancer in the second week of coverage as any other company.

    The Republican Alternative, as written by my two local congressmen (Dr Tom Price and Dr Phil Gingrey) would have done three things first:
    1 – remove the artificially small pool sizes for small companies (see the logic above)
    2 – remove the Congressionally instituted rules against offering insurance across state lines, thus letting people choose to carry their existing insurance with them if their job moves them (now our rates can vary by county instead!!)
    3 – remove the unlimited amounts that can be recovered from malpractice suits AND cap the amount the attorney can recover. Too many attorneys, IMO, have become millionaires of the suffering of those legitimately caused harm by bad doctors AND they keep the money a jury intended to go to the families in their own pockets.

    I went to the town hall meetings they held, heard their plans, and they convinced me that the problem in medicine isn’t the doctors, its the big dollar insurance corporations. I find it odd that the Democrats defend and Republicans attack the corporations… totally against the norm for both. But, i digress….

    Van Jones put it very well. Quit chasing the bunny. You’ll never get the Right (right-but seldom correct) to compromise. See the Wikipedia article on him; what happened to him in 2009 when he was appointed as Special Advisor for Green Jobs is a perfect example of the Right’s intransigence.

    Thank You Donald Williams for finding the video.

    Thanks for your post. I can do a hyperlink and sometimes do; but I believe that any interested person can do a simple “copy & paste” which accomplishes the same thing.

    If an individual is interested, one method is as good as the other, IMHO. (Especially since some don’t understand the need to “right click”!)

    I just realized that my previous comment was prejudicial:
    right click as opposed to left click !!!

    Panel Two: Not true. You have a choice of having your premium costs immediately cut by the amount of your subsidy or getting the subsidy back as a tax credit. I have no idea why anyone would choose the latter, but it is certainly not the federal law.
