    What's that all about ? How much more limited of profits can this country take before there's no point in trying to make money anymore ?

    Get ready for rationed care such as no heart bypass or transplants or joint replacements if you're over a certain age or no cancer treatment if you are over a set age threshold. Even if you find a way to pay for universal care without breaking the bank ( not that too many people care about THAT anymore) how are they going to account for the increase in demand on an already taxed system???
    If you think I'm being overly dramatic, look at the countries that have
    universal coverage such as Canada. Often it's a 6-12 month wait in certain areas for CAT scans or to start cancer treatment. A friend's daughter is spending a semester over in England and went to the hospital on weekend with a suspected case of strep throat. They refused to do a throat culture even though she offered to pay, telling her "go home take a few aspirin and give it a few days" Three days later she got her antibiotic but at what risk???
    Now we are Canada's safety net where they come and pay when they don't want to wait. I can see some offshore country (Bahamas??,Jamaica??Trinidad?) setting up the same system for wealthy Americans who want to get high class treatment without having to wait, especially if they mandate participation by practitioners.

    When I was 11 I lived in England and had a toothache. The only option I was given was to have a permanent tooth pulled at 11 years old. Thankfully that was just before my parents moved over here. A root canal and 31 years later my tooth is still fine, thank you very much.

    What it means is we will not see 'private' insurance companies any more because they can't compete with Obama's service.

    Today, June 6, 2009 1:00 PM, America has the best health care in the world.

    Kennedy, Hillary, Obama all their stinking sh!t does is get The Government into "YOUR HEALTH"

    Can't the American people see how the Government destroys everything it touches, for God Sake don't let those filthy scumsucking politicians have anything at all to do with "your's or your family's health" Jesus Christ Lord God Almighty God Jesus keep those rotten politicians away from my family.

    Pant Suit Hillary, Bastard Teddy, Jug Ears shove your socialist health care and your butcher doctors up your rotten a$ses.

    MEDICAID IS GODS GIFT TO THE POOR DON'T LET THE BASTARDS TAKE IT AWAY

    That supports my point. In the short run, it would have been cheaper (by a factor of more than 10, closer to 15 if a molar) to have the tooth extracted saving money and time. To save it , it required a root canal, likely a post buildup and a crown (cap) on top of the tooth. It cost more but in the long run, it is the better option. Your parents (luckily) had the option of treatments.
    I hope they keep dental OUT of any health insurance or we're likely to end up looking (dentally) like our British cousins, who have a nationalized system.

    Is it interesting if some people use Obama healthcare plan to have their 'sex changed'?

    One thing's for certain, the way our officials are deliberately destroying our currency, there's no point saving anymore
