If everyone took your advice our collective healthcare costs would skyrocket even more than they do already.
Thatís the short term view. Long term everyone would have less stress which should result in less health care issues (= less health care cost).  :P

And if everyone who needed treatment died because there would be no hospitals, we'd save even more money ::)

If you want to bring down costs, try tort reform. Limit lawsuits... etc...

Wouldn't reduce the costs as much as the current law.
Why are you all so scared?
You sound like Palin dogs.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

+1000

That, and proper regulation of healthcare/insurance and incentivizing lower costs will go much further than any law in lowering our collective healthcare costs.

That putting a limit on lawsuits also puts a limit on what a persons life is worth. Catch 22.

A person's life is priceless, and careless doctors should have their licenses revoked and/or criminal penalties (probation/jail etc.), the current system takes the liability off doctors and turns it into a numbers game where the insurance industry double dips and robs us blind.

The current law is the biggest tax increase in world history.

The entire thing has been one lie after another.

The problem is trying to figure out which side is telling the lies.

Look at every other country that has government healthcare. See how well it works out.

The bill was sold to us as "no tax increase". The court this morning said that's the only reason they passed it.

As long as I have been alive this country has always had some type of government run health care.

Which we avoided if we could. If the government would de-regulate the insurance industry, healthcare would be affordable!
