    How high to we go from here?

    Depends on the accretion of acquisitions. I see $20 in the future.

      Your answers to my well thought out response to your post are non-sequitur.

      By your logic........45,000 people die each year because they don't have health care is a fallacious arguement. The conclusion you reach is not connected to the premise.

      approximately 2.5 million people die in the USA each year from various causes, non of which is related to health care. your argument suggests that since (2.5-.45=2.05) 2.05 million people died last year from having health insurance that we should actually be fearful from having insurance. I'll drop mine today for fear that having health insurance may kill me.

      Secondly , it is not necessary to amputate the leg because one has an infected toe. 45,000 deaths represents less that 2% or our population. Why do the responsible 98% have to be strapped with a lavish government ruse to take over 1/6th of the US economy for a lousy 2%.

      Speaking of Obamacare, I thought the whole idea was to lower health care costs. My employer has informed us that starting next year we will no longer be able to get reimbursement for over the counter medicine from our Flexible Spending Accounts. How is that lowering costs? Obamacare is just a ploy to force the "haves" pay the way for the "have-nots". Pathetic.

    • The big problem is shaping up to be lack of doctors because of the government control. It takes so long and so much money to be a qualified doctor that many are rethinking their
      choice of being a doctor. I have a grandson, on deans list, that is thinking hard about another field.

    • Are you saying that the Health Insurance reforms are preventing friends and family and community raising money to help someone ?

      First of all, that is dead wrong. ... and there is no need for anyone in the government to first approve treatment. (where do you get your information? )

      Second, if someone is uninsured, do you know of any community which could cover the $100,000 + medical bills required?

      50% of bankruptcy has in the past been medical debt
      http://www.bcsalliance.com/y_debt_medical.html

      Many of these people lost their jobs and insurance because of no fault of their own ... followed by some medical problem.

      Because of Health Insurance reform, that will soon be a thing of the past. This is a good thing.

      you are right about Mass. thats why they want to get rid of their program but the gov will not let them its proves health care will not work

    • "You ARE already paying for the uninsured when they show up in crisis at the emergency room. It will be alot cheaper if we provide preventative care." No, it is a lot cheaper the way it was before Obamacare. If you want to see what happens when you give insurance to people who show up at emergency rooms, look at Massachusetts. Those people can't be bothered to find a doctor and schedule an appt. They still show up at emergency rooms--just more often.

    • If someone over 65 gets cancer under Obamacare, think they will get to the front of the line in time for treatment? At least before Obamacare, friends and family and community could raise money to help someone. Now you won't be able to get care at any price unless someone in the administration takes time off from watching internet porn to approve you.

    • In the first place 45,000 people don't die because they don't have health insurance. Health insurance doesn't prevent one from dying.

      Secondly I don't believe any study from the Harvard Medical School as they are socialist and studies can be manipulated to show what ever one wishes to show.

      thirdly What we had was good and worked within the boundaries of freedom to make ones own choices not have an unconstitutional law that makes you buy something you don't want.

      Fourthly we don't need federal government involvement or takeover to solve the problems you listed below.
      Republicans put for many excellent proposals to address those situations you expressed and were basically not heard.

      It is my hope that come the 2010 elections we vote out all democrats involved in the wrongful passing of the health care bill and then repeal it.


      ""You want to return to having Health Insurance companies:

      1. Deny coverage for pre-existing conditions
      2. Dropping peoples coverage when they get seriously ill
      3. Getting between you and your doctor regarding the type of treatment you receive.
      4. Losing your health insurance when you lose your job.

      A study by Harvard Medical School estimated that $45,000 people died each year because of the lack of health insurance.

      You want to return to that? ""

    • So if someone in your family is diagnosed with cancer,
      are you going to seek expensive treatment, which you can only afford through insurance, which may cure them or extend their life or are you going to let them die?
