    Barts,

    Maybe a lot of us, but not enough of us. There are 40 or so in the US Senat who do NOT want Nationalized Insurance. BILLIONS more to be bilked from us with the present system.

    Hey, what the hell, we only spend 1/6 of our GNP on medical care that is subpar, and the rest of the world is cheap. They only spend 1/12 or less of their GNP on medical care. Our care has to be TWICE as good as the rest of the World, since we pay twice as much.

    As to the BS that the SOCIALISTIC Health Care Systems in other countries, Evan posted first on 6/19, 3 days ago. NOW, he has been treated. That says those who tell you you will wait years for treatment is BS.

    BUT, it is good Rep BS. WAY too much money to be made with the status quo. Money made, lots more donations to the Reps, and to some of the recalcitrant Dems. Kind of depends on if they have investment funds in those sectors, as with the Judge who put the injunction on the Moratorium on drilling in the Gulf. A bit of HIS money is invested in drilling and cementing companies, Transocean and Halliburton, AND assorted funds with BONYMellon, and another one.

    Cheers,

    George

    Evan,
    Glad to hear you are doing well. I am finally back on the forum after suffering through less than perfect Wifi at several stops along the way. After some messing around my Ipad is working on 3G in the US. What a pain to get activated as you have to have a US address and a matching card to activate. Thanks to a cousin I got around the games.

    Evan,

    I am glad things are working out so well...

    I could not help but think how bad we are told national health care is for populations under it, like in Canada!

    Amazes me that you were so lucky!

    Just joking! I have some years under a national health care system too in the past...and don't really fear the issue should it come to the US.

    Stay well and healthy!

    Ha...now that is funny.....I wish I had such mastery of manipulating images as some of you do. I laughed out loud on that one. I guess having stones and experiencing the pain...makes that block even funnier.

    I would hesitate to describe the removal of my tailbone in such detail!

    Glad it all worked out for you Evan.

    I passed 12 kidney stones when I was in my twenties. The phrase of pissing barbed wire is very accurate.
