Other than that, Einstein has a valid point. I think the problem is that Obama has made promises that lacked good planning and thought and is now being held accountable for coming through with the goods. At one point I believe someone in the Senate or Congress commented that under such a plan as has been proposed, WE, THE PEOPLE, would have a healthcare system similar to what they have in Washington, D.C. I think that would be great! I don't think they pay a thing from their paychecks for their coverage and it lasts a lifetime. If this proposal is such a good deal, then all federal employees - elected, appointed, salaried, or hourly - should be made to use the new system and forfeit the benefits of their existing plans. If that were the case, you might see a very different stance on the subject.
By the way...anyone can comment on this thread. It is not restricted.
