The number of defenders of GingrichCare never ceases to amaze me.

If the GingrichCare rule had been proposed by an obvious republican, everyone here would be against it.

If the rightwing mandate to buy private, for-profit, essentially unregulated insurance is upheld, it's going to hit democrats hard at the ballot box.

"Employer-based health insurance has always been a bad idea. Your life should not depend on who you work for." -- T. McKeon

"Despite the present hyperbole by its supporters, this latest effort will end up as just another failed reform effort littering the landscape of the last century." --John Geyman, M.D., Hijacked! The Road to Single Payer in the Aftermath of Stolen Health Care Reform
