Because we aren't moving towards Universal Health Care, they are making it possible for everyone to afford health insurance. Oh not by adjusting the rates to what working people can afford, though.

Mate, I don't understand why so many people are all worked up about it. Most nations already have a universal health care system (New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Canada, United Kingdom, Scandinavia, most of Europe, Asia and South America) and it`s working just fine. It is not limiting your `god-given rights`, it`s expanding them for one and all. How is this a problem? Being from New Zealand, I, and many others, just don`t get the Conservative American response that it is impinging on their `freedom`.

@snailslime re: its just not worth waiting 10 hours in a waiting room with an actual problem for the first 25 potheads and deadbeats to get thier minor and for some self inflicted problems checked out.
Actually, dearie, that's not quite how it works. You see, what happens is that your admittance depends on the severity of your case. Generally speaking, if there`s copious amounts of blood you`re priority. Broken bones, sprains, copious amounts of vomit/pain usually means you`ll be seen first. If you`ve got a cough or something, expect to be there awhile. That`s how it is here in Canada. I`m not saying it`s a perfect system, there are people who are overlooked and fall through the cracks (I know this firsthand, and I have family in the medical field!). But it`s not fair that the rich man gets away without any real worry if he has a car accident, but the poor man has to go into debt or even go without treatment if something bad happens to them.
