7. "Congratulations, everyone get's a free BMW....but now give me the money for the car...or ELSE!"
Edited on Sun Mar-07-10 04:24 PM by denimgirly
Cenk Uygur gave this great analogy. Unless there is true cost containment then this mandated structure, although good for people with high-risk conditions, is a godsend for those republicans seeking wins this midterm -- no one likes mandates. Public Option (at the very least) is a cost saving measure, not gimmicks like half-baked watchdogs to control the levels of rate increases each year. Selling mandates without smoething like a public option is suicidal for elections.

If you think people will be able to afford healthcare you are dellusional or misinformed.
