If Health Insurance Reform isn't forthcoming one thing is certain
If there is no reform of the health care insurance industry in this country one thing is utterly certain - when it comes to pillaging our pocketbooks, you ain't seen nothing yet. Not passing reform sends the insurance/pharmaceutical/health care industry one message, you have not crossed the line when it comes to abusing the public, you can go farther.

1. The industry supports the current reforms as currently written. They like manditory insurance.

2. Yes and no. Prices go up much more and you'll see people dropping altogether.
If you simply CAN'T AFFORD IT, people will start dropping out. Compare that with a 'mandate'.

Then more horror stories start (more bankruptcies, people dropped, etc).

THAT IS WHAT THE REPUBLICANS *WANT*. No bill = "RepubliCare".

No, rather than pass a really shitty bill which will be labeled "ObamaCare", and have little opportunity to change it (NAFTA was SUPPOSED to be easy to change, remember?) it might just be better to let things go down the crapper for a couple of more years let things get to the point where more people GET IT...

Of course, the media could help get the FUCKING TRUTH out, but NOOOooooo.
