    lol, I was referring to the extra burden on the health care system.
    I don't think Sweden has a large illegal immigrations burden that the US does, so a comparison is not just.

    Screw up the private system that didn't account for those with pre-existing conditions?

    That routinely rescinded customers that cut into their profit margins?

    Our privatized system is purely to skim $$$ and nothing more.

    And that's the difference here...as a self described Christian, you think that's ok to have a system that excludes based on profit

    It's not the Gov's fault that this is an area where the need for insurance distorts costs, and there is little true competitions use to monopolization

    Elective care is called that because it is elective. Did we see a massive decrease in the number of bypass surgeries, appendectomies, setting of broken bones, etc?

    I know you do, Bill, and I feel sorry for you that you're so bitter. But I'm ok with you having to pay taxes in the country you choose to live in.

    He can't do it. There is/was a reason people from all over the world came here for operations.

    unsustainable, like Social Security, Medicare, Medicade, the National Debt, the Post office, and now this MASSIVE Health care plan that is going to cost so much it will also be unsustainable. But you have no problems with any of these government run programs huh.

    I confess to not having read the entire thread, but don't the polls put the U.S. far from No. 1 in satisfaction with health care?

    Ok River, can you tell me someone you know, who needed medical attention and was denied it? Excluding druggies who visit ER's for pain killers.

    Translation.

    How does it make him bitter to not want to pay excessive taxes on what he's earned? There's fair share and then there's "give us all your money", which is the side that this country seems to be leaning on lately.

    I have no problem paying taxes. I do have a problem when we pay taxes and we see them completely wasted all around us. We could invest it ourselves, fix something ourselves, save for our kid's college - all kinds of things. Instead (as an example) we pay a ton of taxes here in NY for road work, and all you see is a few crews here and there, usually chatting up a storm. Or for police, who refuse to ride 2 to a car to save money and won't give up their elective plastic surgery insurance riders. Or the gas for the fire chief, who was constantly using the tax-paid car to take his kids to school and leaving the car RUNNING OUTSIDE so it wouldn't get cold (winter) for about 15-20 minutes a pop (I sat there and timed it once because I was angry, then reported him).

    I don't see how he's bitter.

    Because he thinks that he gets to decide in all cases how his tax money gets spent regardless of election outcomes.

    If I had my way, none of my tax money would hardly ever go towards our war machine. However, I know that if a GOP prez is elected, we will invariably end up in a new war or conflict.

    FYI, we could have insured all the uncovered citizens for years if we hadn't embarked on the Iraq War.

    Shab I am pretty well educated and know full well I do not have a say in how my tax dollars are spent- my issue is they want more of what I have earned and yet we have 47+% who pay ZERO income taxes and they have zero idea how to cut spending

    Really? Wilson, Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, Clinton and Obama continuing Bush's Middle East involvement. Someone remind me which party those guys were involved in?
