    Conservatives have presented many alternatives to Obamacare. Every informed person in the US knows this. However, being informed has never been what being liberal was really about, now has it?

    That "plan" is not a plan at all! Certainly, Sparky, you have more.

    Mordred--I will take it under advisement.
    However--I think you might want to avoid dis-jointed rejoinder.

    Since you say there are "many alternatives" by you GOPpers, you'll certainly have no trouble finding another one which is actually a plan and not just an outline of your, simple-minded principles like this one is.

    Sometimes simple is best. But elitists like yourself seem to prefer the 2700 page monstrasity that no one read, called Obamacare, not to mention the additional 19k added pages of regulations, and they aren't even finished writing those. After 10 years, and after it's bankrupt the country, people like your superior intelect might actually be able to understand it, but I doubt it.

    you ask for a plan, one is provided and all you have is 'its not a plan'.

    here's one for you to ignore too.


    the problem is tast health CARE costs too much ergo health INSURANCE costs too much.
    why does health CARE cost too much ?

    defensive medicine accounts for upwards of half the problem, even BO admitted this (and refused to address it). fraud is rampant especially in the Medi's as they put little effort into combating it. the nature of the models used in provider reimbursement is engineered to make it legal and easy to milk the insurer and you can thank Uncle Sam for that. throw in the costs associated with liberal requirements in some states to have mandated coverages on all policies and that hurts.

    so your medical plan is, save money by not covering shit...and the same bullshit idea that reform so you can't sue if they screw up and kill you...even though thats already done at the state level and has no impact...and bitching about how its easy to milk the insurance company for extra things....yet if someone says get rid of the insurance company you get pissed to...and let me guess...people having heart attacks will "shop around" and people who are sick and need to get insurance...will find companies offering fair rates...nah you don't expect them to have to take them...so they can just go die.


    I don't think most republicans care at all if the poor die...just makes the wait shorter for them

    Laws must not only speak in generalities like this proposal, but must be specific too. It's different to specify the general goals you desire (stated by this "plan") rather than being specific enough to be a law. Hell, the general goals of our plan could be stated in a few pages too, rightie.

    "Mordred?". Are you referring to the Arthurian character?
