I've read the Affordable Healthcare Act (aka Obamacare). In short it's going to push people out of their current insurance by either making it less expensive for the employer to pay the fine and dump their employees into Obamacare or by taxing employers for keeping their "Cadillac" healthcare plans. So we have an elimination of choice as well as our insurance in favor of a more expensive plan. Next the plan dictates which doctors you can go to so the bit about you being able to keep your doctor...well don't count on it. Next a panel is going to determine what medical procedures you get based on a raft of things including how much in taxes the state can expect to get from you in the future. Granny you might want to worry about that one.

I think he understood fully, and called it right. Opinions are a lot like anal sphincters - we all have them, and they all stink!

Wow, granny! It's a good thing I couldn't care less what the (pretty much universally wrong) "beliefs" of liberals are. I deal in something liberals REALLY don't believe in: facts.

Paul Krugman assured us back in 2009 that, “In Britain, the government itself runs the hospitals and employs the doctors. We’ve all heard scare stories about how that works in practice; these stories are false.”

If that’s the case, then the British press is filled with liars who deliberately make up horror stories about their nation’s healthcare system, as you can see here, here,
