    outside of exclusive Jewelry, insurance is the only thing you pay for before it can be used, then a lot of those claims are either denied.

    People should be able to opt out of either government mandated insurance or with paying the penalty. Its just like most of the states where you have to show financial responsibility to register your car if you do not have auto insurance. The people opting out should either sign a "Living Will" that "no care should be provided to them until someone can deposit money for care; or have a bond to cover the expenses; or deposit $1000 with fire department for ambulance, deposit money for few hours of emergency care with the hospital, etc..." You get the point. The "Living Will" should also state that they or anyone on their behalf will not be allowed to sue if any care is not given due to lack of funds. Since they make this decision why should the tax payers be responsible for their care if they are not able to pay for the care.

    I wish Stephanie would interrupt those people more often and try to get some real data instead of this vapordata.

    Entire classes of people will have premiums going up? Classes? Do we know how many people are actually in those classes ? Chambliss claims premiums are going up from 200 to 800 dollars a month? That sounds pretty bad and it is radically different than the data I've seen on - and who is the heck is getting decent healthcare for 200 dollars a month anyway?

    I imagine his "data" is based on the "obamacare map" produced by a right-wing think tank called the Manhatten Institute, founded by Ronald Reagan's campaign manager William J Casy and another individual partial to right wing causes. Membership probably includes the usual suspects and masters of deciet and lies, including Rove.

    And Chambliss can reckon away the value of the government for the rest of us, but he's been getting government paychecks some number of years and he don't look like he's missed too many meals.

      Actually Ms Cutter has made remarkable progress in holding her tongue in the last few weeks...she's moved from rude to simpering, and all data is *evapordata* if it's coming out of a democrat's mouth, as they have demonstrated for five years.

        You should review the authenticity of your sources.

    The GOP do have an alternative to Obamacare. It is called prayercare, as is you get sick, then pray you don't die, because your GOP politicians will have split the health care money among themselves and their wealthy owners.
