Health Insurance reform is not Health Care reform.
Edited on Wed Sep-16-09 01:22 PM by Melissa G
I want affordable health care for my family, not the opportunity to have the same or a different high deductible health insurance plan that I might only get to use in a catastrophic situation.

2. It is if it is single payer and paid for through taxes.

4. Single payer fits the bill as far as I can tell.
There may be something out there that also does, but mandated high deductible insurance is not the fix I am looking for. Health care reform that takes care of people, not insurance companies, is the discussion I would like for us to be having in Congress and around the country.

3. And another K&R. They've brainwashed the American people into thinking they're
one and the same. It's just so wrong...

5. Exactly. If you can get people focused on the wrong question,
You don't have to worry about the answer.
