Exactly - we were thinking the same thing at the same time!

Liberals - they rail against monopolies and big businesses that drown out the mom-and-pop shops. But, when dismantling the giant state-controlled health insurance monopolies, liberals want no part of it just because it is not a specific progressive idea. What they don't get is that it is an American, free-enterprise idea. Wasn't it liberals who were decrying the lack of competition from drug companies that was causing the price of medicine to skyrocket for medicare/medicaid , and the general public? Why should health insurance companies be any different? Why shouldn't they compete nation-wide for our money? Think about it.

Ron Paul is a libertarian and so is Stossel.

I did comment hours ago that you received that hospital benefit b/c it was part of the "contract" from your time in service. That doesn't mean that everyone should get everything for free. What we need is for people to be able to afford their own private health insurance policy. To afford it, we need to dismantle the state-run monopolies that health insurance companies currently enjoy. They don't have to please us; it's their way or the highway. We must allow people to shop around nation-wide for specific coverage and let those companies bid for our dollars. If there is going to be a health care mandate, then at least we should be able to purchase insurance at competitive free-market prices.

When health insurance companies finally have to compete for your business, they will offer you the kitchen sink for your premium dollars because they no longer will have you by the throat with their state monopolies. The point is consumer choice and open-market competition - which we have none of now.

John, when we finally have a system where insurance companies have to compete against each other nation-wide for our premium dollars, then you'll see rates plummet and choices go through the roof. People should be able to pick cafeteria-style for those services they want for themselves and their family members and have companies bid for consumers' business. Much like today when people fill out car purchase requests online- auto companies offer their lowest price and throw in extras just so you'll buy a car from them and not their competitor. Let's make the insurance companies compete - only then, without their state-run monopolies will insurance be affordable.

That is not true. Absolutely not true. Consumers would be able to get better coverage for less than they are now paying. Better meaning suited to their needs. At least people would have an option. Who are you to say that just because some people would pay only for catastrophic that somehow justifies the majority of us being denied the ability to actually shop the market for the best product at competitive prices (which does not exist now).

It's a volunteer corps. By the way, send Obama a message that the 's' in corps is silent. I know, he's so much smarter than Bush 43, but somehow twice Obama pronounced the 's' in corps in speeches. I guess he never read or studied about the military while studying so hard on the one or two small parts of the constitution he claims to be so learned about.

False. Public sector workers get far better benefits, which IS compensation. Also, I don't care how "nice" someone is - they still have no right to force me to do things that are unconstitutional.

If it's so inexpensive, then why is it bankrupting us?
