I have a sneaking suspicion that this means my employer will be cutting back on our medical benefits (even more) next time around...
I swear, the plan we have now sounds good at first, but it's almost like we don't even have insurance...
next stop: socialism
and after that, the government steals your thoughts and replaces them with strawberries milkshakes. Quick, to the tin foil aisle!
Strawberry milkshakes might be a good trade for my thoughts...
Sorry...I couldn't help it. I'm in the middle of a massive debate in the library over this...no one's studying, and we have people from all sides of the political spectrum debating this, loudly, and with disregard to all others who are studying at this hour on a Sunday.
Either way, if they go milkshakes, they better come with whip and a cherry like they do at Steak-n-Shake. All I'm saying.
...... but the amendments haven't been voted on yet. Not a done deal.
I have employer subsidized coverage, so not such a big deal to me......... in the short run. What happens later? Who really gets phuqued in the end? I understand and appreciate the concern, but am not convinced this is the best solution.
I'd rather see the sites placed squarely on the tax system.... or the ungodly deficit... or the jobs bill... or the deforestation... or the greed of the pharmacutical industry... or the younameit. The healthcare debate is certainly worthy, but there are other concerns to be debated that need attention.
Legacy will only get you so far..........
I wonder how long it'll be before this thread's locked. I've always wanted to post in a thread that'll be locked ...
As an outside observer, I find the effect fifty years of anti-Communist propaganda on the American psyche fascinating, and I wonder what a charismatic Neo-Liberal leader such as Ronald Reagan would suggest for the system.
I hope whatever ends up happening with the US system, it helps them get out of this hole they're in and within a decade or so their nation starts approaching the relative health levels of Sweden, Finland, Japan, Canada, Germany and others.
Congrats USA. People vote for change and then realize they are not comfortable with change. Its scary i know, but let it happen. This guy is good for your country and it's nice to see someone that wants to go to work in the morning. You guys will prosper at the end of the day:thumbup:
