I just don't like the idea of 'Big Brother' running your life more than they already do. Do you really want a bunch of Politicians in Washington telling you if you can have that quadruple bypass surgery or something?

I know you will probably say that the Insurance Companies already do the same thing, but that is just because there really is no proper free market capitalism system with the Health Care Sector right now.

Yes, I gotta agree with the Republicans, let people buy insurance nation wide. Give the insurance companies some REAL competition so they actually have to give a cr*& about their customers and want to hold onto them! Of course preexisting conditions will still be a problem and not everyone will still be able to afford Health Care which is a right!!

A government program that you have to financially qualify for, or if you have preexisting conditions could solve this, but I just think the Government's role is to protect our rights, not run or lives.

If your on the Governments Health care plan, I can only imagine how much they will try to interfere in people lives trying to force them to eat Healthy and perhaps even forced Doctor visits and even house calls.

The free market is the most sacred thing we have. Without it, there would be no advances in technology, competition Between AMD and Intel have lead us to these 3ghz processors, competition between Nvidia and Ati has also lead to these massive graphics cards we have now.

I'm sure competition has done a lot for laser treatment in the medical sector as well and I for one would like to see technology keep progressing. The Government cannot (here's a word I bet MOST of you hate) constitutionally force you to buy anything like it's trying to do now with Health Care reform.

I didn't think I would HATE another president as much as Bush.

That doesn't happen in UHC systems. If your doctor recommends you for a procedure, you get it.

Now, what IS an issue, potentially, is the availability of doctors and the wait-time attached to the procedure. This is why UHC systems have make a big deal out of placing people in priority groups according to the severity of their specific ailment and the likelihood of a full recovery.

But, really, which system is preferable - the one funded by Big Brother or the one dependent on Big Business? In the former, medical decisions dictate when you get the procedure - it's imperfect, but it's more or less fair; in the latter, money dictates if you get the procedure - medical necessity be damned.
