I keep wanting to slap those people. I mean seriously, the fear-mongering over things that they hypothesize are going to happen (for which there is no real evidence), compared to things that are actually happening to real people right now, that are so much worse? I sincerely hope some of those protesters get to experience the bad side of the system we have now. I don't know how else you get people to take their damn blinders off.

Dude. There's the opposite of evidence. Every country in the world that has some kind of national healthcare system (which is so far away from what Obama's plan is about that there's really no comparison) is doing just fine, thank you. It's not that their healthcare systems don't have their problems, sure they do. It's just that their systems are so far superior to ours, the problems don't matter, relatively speaking.

They pretty much have just substituted their imaginings for what's really going on. According to them, if you have a wait time you must just be a lazy person who has no job. Don't ask me how that works.

But good luck with the test!

And the thing is, I'm employed with health insurance.

A guy on the moveon council I'm part of told a story about how his late wife was thrown out of the hospital by United Health after two days post extensive ovarian cancer surgery that her doctor had told her would require several days hospital recovery time. He recalled hearing his wife's doc on the phone literally yelling in frustration at the insurance company. She had absolutely no say in the matter. And he said that this was with "excellent" insurance through United Health, except for the small matter of how they decided to tell doctors how to practise medicine.
