Personally, I think it's unconstitutional for the government to
require private hospitals to treat people for free and the same for
requiring people to buy health insurance.

you can't lower costs the liberal way, you just hide them & pass them on to
future generations.

I said they are losers....not liberals. In this scenario, party affiliation
is irrelevent. I agree that a certain number are irresponsible Republicans.

My point is that it's the liberals who are advocating this guaranteed issue
law and insurance companies are reacting accordingly. They are
businesses....not social agencies.

It's a nice fantasy, appealing in its brainless simplicity: Liberals
blow money and Conservatives do not. Sadly, the real world is not that
simple. The US has the most expensive healthcare in the world and
millions do not have decent healthcare. It's the worst of all worlds.

You're the simple one, as those are your words. I've stated many times and
in great detail how to lower healthcare costs. What you call reform will not
do it. It goes against the basic laws of economics.
