My condolences to his parents.

services. He screwed up Guliani's campaign by offering up wrong information that Rudy, of course used.

I've heard this bastard before, he's just about the only "expert" that the medical industry has to promote this defective defense.

7. I hate apologists for private enterprise in health insurance.
Edited on Sat Jul-11-09 01:41 AM by Selatius
If there would be more competition, there would be cheaper health care for all!

Yeah, right. I'm sure if you took everybody and put them into one giant insurance pool, it would be better able to negotiate costs down compared to 300 fucking insurance pools each with names like Aetna, Cigna, United Health, Kaiser-Permanente, etc., all of them practicing the art of giving people incomplete insurance coverage with high deductibles and co-pays and the art of denying care because of "pre-existing" conditions all for the sake of greater profit margins.

13. Partially true.
It's hospitals and health plan division are non-profit, while it's Permanente Medical Groups are for-profit. In total, Kaiser-Permanente recorded 1.3 billion in profits last year.

No conjecture. No lecturing. Just the facts -- and the facts tells the story.

24. They can't stand the true facts.
As a former health care giver, I am shocked and saddened to see what has become of health care in America. $ 1. 4 million is being spent per day in DC by the health care lobbyists so your elected representative is getting taken care of and has quality health care we pay for and can't afford ourselves for our families, I know what is deemed, defended and supported in Tennessee and Virginia as quality health care and clearly profit care comes ahead of patient care. http://www.wisecountyissues.com/?p=62 MRSA ( methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureas ) is infesting our communities because filthy, uncaring hospitals and emergency rooms are breeding them and spreading them into our schools, homes, restaurants. How many more Americans' will be diseased or die while 74 % of Americans' are begging for health care reform ? More people died in America last year from MRSA complications than AIDS. When MRSA and a flu bug start mixing, it won't be pretty and we are being infected by the very health care system we depend on and trust to keep us safe and healthy.
