    I agree Putney.

    Single payer (meaning the govt pays and we pay it back in taxes) is the only way to stop the extortion... as you so eleoquently put it... that the insurance companies levy. If the govt passes a public option rather than a single payer system, I wonder what they believe an affordable premium should be? Any monthly premium that is in excess of $100 will be more expensive than the people who need it most can afford. I wonder if it will be a sliding scale based on income?

    If the Single payer is not incuded in the

    public option, then simply put the HMOs at the bargaining table have won and the tax payer has lost, because now the tax payer will now be required to PAY THE EXTORTION to the HMOs with our taxes.

    So no there will be no conciderations made

    Yes it will be supplemented by our taxes, but with the public option, we will have to come out of pocket as well. The public option preserves the Insurance company's interest. I'm sure the lobbyist love that.

    yeah but Obama was supposed to get rid of not just the lobbyists but the tax havens they had in Switzerland and the Caymans

    "I am in this race to tell the corporate lobbyists that their days of setting the agenda in Washington are over. I have done more than any other candidate in this race to take on lobbyists — and won. They have not funded my campaign, they will not run my White House, and they will not drown out the voices of the American people when I am president."

    He didn't lie. He has done more than all them other devils. Politics is all about how you word things and perceptions.

    All in all, I want the govt to pass something. Anything that can guarantee a person some semblence of health insurance. I am one of the 47 million without. I work a full time job and my boss does not offer any nor does he have to. And at the old age of with my 1 pre-existing condition, my premiums (for just me) are almost as high as my mortgage. We need something at least to get started. They will tweak it over time.

    First and foremost... I am a sister not a Brother. And secondly, I have no idea what you read, but I said nothing about liars.
