I hear so much of how bad it is or is going to be, yet, the ones that want to repeal the law, have not offered any alternatives. Other than keep it the way it was. We see how our system worked before this law was attempted. Give me some sound alternatives, not just pouting because the Dems got it through. I wonder how many here would have the same stance, had it been an idea pushed through by a Republican administration.
I have more belief in humanity than to think that the govt would deny treatment, especially since they are the ones that established it. We have just as much energy wealth as Canada, if we would just uncap the wells we have and let the oil flow here. I spent quite a bit of time in Canada this past summer for work. I spoke to many natives there, and didn't find one person that did not like the Canadian health care plan. Their taxes are higher, but they seemed fine with it, knowing that if they needed medical care, it was available. Close friend of mine up there spent 6 weeks in the hospital with a perforated stomach and never paid a dime. Doesn't sound too bad to me.
