Agreed, more people should see it. Probably never even made it anywhere near the news.

I have heard many people argue that issues like government run health care are too complex to easily explain or answer in simple terms...

Well friends, it don't get no simpler than this...

It's become clear that the American people want some kind of healthcare reform. It's also very clear that they don't the type of "reform" being offered up.

Scrap this POS, and start from scratch.

Call it serendipity, providence, or whatever, but the "healthcare crisis" has morphed to "healthcare reform", and now to the more accurate assessment, the need for "health insurance reform", as noted in another thread... http://forums.steelersfever.com/show...73&postcount=1

There is nothing at all wrong with "health care" in this country. Its the best in the world. Nobody else is even close. Anybody within these here United States, legal or otherwise, rich or penniless, can access medical services from the best health care system in the world. If we were intellectually honest, we would not distort those salient facts. This is not about "fixing" anything. It is a power grab. Period.

As has also been noted numerous times, the genesis of this stupidity is the "crisis" of the "47M uninsured". So again, if we were at all intellectually honest, we'd frame the discussion thus. And again, those who were interested (that excludes the intellectually lazy, dimwits and pathological socialists) looked into this "47M uninsured" to discover that once you counted out illegals, young folks that don't care, folks between jobs, and folks that just don't want to pay for insurance, the number of "chronically uninsured" is less than 10M. If that constitutes a "crisis", then attack the "crisis of the 10M", and that alone.

The only "issue" regarding health care is who pays for it. As the Congressman so noted, and I must say how impressed I was that he didn't need a teleprompter to do this, the overwhelming majority of Americans have insurance and they are quite pleased with that arrangement. So the only question that would remain is what to do about those 10M "chronically uninsured".

Some corporations that provide handsome benefits to their employees are "self insured". They carry disaster coverage and may have an insurance company administer claims, but actually insured costs to pay for medical services are paid by the corporation. Really??!! On average, "self insured" corporations save substantial money paying the expenses rather than buying insurance for all their employees. Otherwise why would they do that?

Unless you were born yesterday (I love those ads), you are aware that insurance is a wager between the insurance company and the insured. You're betting that something is going to happen that'll cost more than the insurance and vise versa.

As we survey the travails of the 10M "chronically uninsured", why is the "self insured" piece missing from the discourse? The discussion is framed in "its gonna cost bigillions and we're gonna cut Medicare and Medicaid, and blah, blah, blah.". If we were to provide decent insurance, say something in the $800/mo range for the 10M "chronically uninsured" it would cost $96B/yr. The "self insured" approach would be a fraction of that. And the finest health care system on the planet would move forward, and all the insured folks would live happily ever after.

Why is this not being discussed? Yeah. Really.
