So your doctor is not on your side, eh Wvcoffee? Your doctor is a 1%er who is gouging you? He doesn’t deserve the salary he earns? America’s doctors are the next enemy in the socialist-progressive class warfare campaign?

Typical loony leftist class envy is so amusing. LOL

Maybe he just realized that 49 NEW departments with over 100,000 new government employees making >$100K each will not exactly get anything done.

Or maybe he as been READING the bill since it was passed and finally got to the end of it after 2 years??

So you mean government-run health insurance for everyone, regardless of preexisting conditions, with no plan to provide more doctors to care for all those new patients, and just a little "fine-tax" to pay for it all, might not work? Now where have I heard that before?...

just list the food additives and what foods are bad for you. The rest will fall into -lace shortly. The dow may drop but the people will slowly become healthier and the road to doctors and emergency rooms will be less traveled.

Free walkin clinics are usually funded by government grants . The people who come in are enrolling in the medical industry billing service.

the benefit of expanding health care to those who can't or won't provide it for themselves is economics. The larger the pool of prospects, the more illnesses you can sign up as life long patients and customers for the health care industry and suppiler businesses.

So I am in a dieticians office discussing nutrition. I say " What meds and supplements in conjunction with foods , overload the system ?" They say " You need to get an order from your doctor ro schedule a visit with me for an hour to discuss this ." I say " Ok, I'll make an appointment with your front desk ." They say " Oh no, you must have your Dr order or refer you ." I ask " I'm here, I have insurance, you take insurance, why the Dr in the middle ? " I then got the perfect iodea for home income. You sit on the front porch swing and watch cars drive drive by. If Texas is that direction and Alaska is the other direction, you cup your hands and shout, " You are headed towards Texas " Then you send them a bill for directions.Call it " Affordable Directions Act "

Its important to note that he was a key supporter of the concept of expanded health care. He now sees that it cannot be implemented. Others supporters now see that when put into place it will make health care providers, especially medical supply people into a larger monster than the military industrial complex is now. Supporters often point to hospitals when they list support for expanded health care, but really, that is not a surprise, they will be on the Federal teat, just like Dow, or Boeing or any military arms supplier is now. Unlimited insane billing. No more free care from hospitals, no more charity work from doctors..there are fortunes to be made. That the goverrnment has never had the courage to control costs in medical billing or insurance indicates they will never control costs when its a tax based monster. Like US arms dealers. The $700 hammer of old will be the $1,000 band aid in hospital billing. It is a disaster waiting to happen.
