Health care thoughts. Paranoia strikes deep

From friends on Facebook


I am so disgusted. Some people opposed to the health bill are frothing at the mouth, making death threats and breaking windows. Many of those who support reform don’t yet realize they’ve been duped– and the raving nutcases only make them feel more victorious. Some liberal friends are talking about buying guns. What is happening to this country? Logic has deserted us! Are we on the brink of self-destruction?

It’s a sad day when I find myself siding with Republicans: the government cannot force people to buy health insurance.

Especially when there are no caps on insurance premiums. Sure, insurance companies can no longer drop you or put a cap on their maximum payments, and that’s good. But there are no controls on how much they can raise rates and if you drop the insurance, the IRS comes after you.
