    Lets put something together and give you something to think about. In April Obama had an interview with the NY Times. He is quoted that he wanted a committee to oversee health care. This is also stated in HB 3200. This committee will set the guideline for Health care. OK Well in England (one of the models that is being hyped) A woman delivered a premature baby 21 weeks 5 days. According to the article the health committed in England has a stipulation that a baby born younger then 22 weeks will recieve no health care. Food for thought

    • <<According to the article the health committed in England has a stipulation that a baby born younger then 22 weeks will receive no health care.>>

      First of all, I am having a hard time with your posting's syntax. I think you're trying to say that in England, this baby is two days short of receiving health care, but I'm not sure.

      1. You cite "the article". Does this article have a link? I'd like to see it. Hopefully, it's a reputable link.

      2. You're talking about England, and we're here in the US of A. Sorry, but it's doubtful that what you put out there trying to scare folks about premature babies and health care in the UK is going to be included in any health "plan" here in the USA. Just like there are no death panels, and no health care for illegal immigrants. Please. Stop.

      3. Existing health plans and coverages work for me...all of the undereducated suckers out there that think they don't want "socialized" medicine, who believe in death panels and who listen to Hannity are really the ones who need the changes the most. Doesn't matter to me... I'm healthy, make a good living and am covered. Most aren't.

      How's THAT for food for thought?

    • Yea, but how is any of this (the fears of denial of medical service) different than what we have in this country now? The insurance companies are quick to reject any claim for medical service they deem inapropriate. Every insurance policy has plenty of small print giving them the right to deny coverage.
