    I’m 61 years old self emplyed & work every day, my wife is 53 we currentlly pay $1500 per month, we had to meet a $200 EACH, deductable on our precsriptons, so a $40 one month supply of inhaller for my wife was $240. She had to wait till we could afford the increase cost, for a medicine that helps her to breath. I had to pay the same $200 for my prescription. You support doing nothing about Health Care or Insurance reform. SHAME ON YOU AND ALL THOSE WHO THINK LIKE YOU AND CARE NOT FOR THE AVERAGE AMERICAN CITIZEN.

    Robert while I sympathize with your situation the democrat health care bill is not the answer. The entire bill is invasive, controlling and downright anti-individual freedom. To many lines crossed where they should of stepped off.

    BTW In 2006 and 2007 both Obama and Harry Reid voted against two health care reform bills.

    Why? Were they lying in wait for a dem pres and dem majority congress to bombard America with the travesty they have written?

    Robert-I also sympathize with your situation, but envolving the government will only worsen things. Just look at Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, the Post Office. All are inefficient and doomed for failure. We must not pass on healthcare to these jokers. They need to prove to us they can fix their current Medicare and Medicaid/medical disability programs before we hand them the entire healthcare system to screw up-we are talking about our families lives. If they want to tax us, fine we can work harder or vote them out, do not give them our lives. Below is a letter I have sent to congress and the senate:

    I am writing as a Physician Assistant to express my thoughts on healthcare reform. I do believe it is necessary to improve our current system; however, the proposals before Congress are not representative of what Americans want in healthcare reform.

    Ethical decisions are fundamental to any acceptable and workable healthcare system over the long term. These ethical considerations factor into making the right decisions for patients. These decisions are best made by the patient and the provider. It is absurd to believe that ethical decisions will play a meaningful part in a government-run system that will always be subject to political whim.

    It is wrong for the government to take the public backward in the process of ethical decision making for the few to punish the majority with an inept medical system. Why compromise the best medical system in the world? The goal is to improve availability of healthcare for the uninsured, not to compromise healthcare for the majority.

    In order to hold down medical costs, we need to reduce the number of frivolous lawsuits against physicians, limit fraud and improve the efficiency in healthcare. The number of frivolous lawsuits can be greatly reduced with a few simple tort reforms, such as using a blue-ribbon panel of experts, or medical expert certifications to determine whether a case truly has merit. A nationwide system of award caps or limits is also essential.

    The public is very aware that political self-interest prevents tort reform. The well-funded plaintiff’s bar presents a formidable roadblock to meaningful reform. Attorneys refuse to police themselves. They fund lobbyists and members of Congress to insure that the government will not change the existing system.

    Another issue that needs reform involves medical disability. A very large number of the disability patients I see in our neurosurgery clinic are obviously attempting to be deceptive about the extent of their impairment, if any. Disability patients materially contribute to massive increase in medical costs to our society. Indeed, MEDICAL DISABILITY HAS BECOME WELFARE and the impact of fraudulent claims are grossly unfair to the truly disabled who are deserving of our focus and full attention. The fraudulent disability patient runs up costs by having to maintain a record of medical impairment which is ongoing and submitted to the state government. The fraudulent patient occupies appointments that should be allocated for truly ill patients. The current system (created by government entitlement) leads to expensive medical testing, office visits and sometimes even surgeries. Now our federal government wants taxpayers to foot yet another bill for free care which will compound the problem.

    The government is not listening to the majority of its citizens. DOES THIS SOUND LIKE GOOD GOVERNMENT TO YOU? The productive private sector brings in revenue to the government and has a symbiotic relationship with the government. However, this symbiosis has come to a halt due to our government’s overgrowth in both size and control. The people are calling on government officials to do the RIGHT thing and not to respond to the misguided pressures of the Speaker of the House, the President or Lobbyists.

    Thanks for this website. I was looking for the contact info for the Blue Dogs so I can urge them to SUPPORT our duly elected Presidents efforts to provide the basic health care for ALL American hard working tax paying citizens. We are tired of you special interest greedy soul-less insurance companys ripping us off. You suck.

    To support single payer look up David Axelrod’s “Something worth forwarding” and The Pen’s “… ONE phone call this month…” We must get the word out or these selfish, roaring right wing fanatics will destroy health care reform. It’s our children and grandchildren that will suffer from their vindictiveness.

    Dear Delusional Vicki
    I am short on time but since I am feeling generous I will give you a link to something that should make your head explode. And that oh foolish one will make my evening. I thank you for that.
    Here is a hint: How DESPERATE is Obama?
    Take your time and read through all the comments. I hope you enjoy the pithy commentary as much as I did. 🙂

    Who has a list of who are the perceived “blue dog” democrats in the Senate. We must be determined to defeat a government option in health care. I will do all I can, at this point I need the list? There are at least twenty reasons I have as to why a government option will be the worst piece of legislation ever.
