    You got it, Dave:

    "Still, this compromise of abandoning a single-payer system for a public option was not enough for Republicans and some conservative Democrats. Even though a public option was included in both the House and Senate versions of healthcare reform, politics prevailed and yet another huge concession was made. Instead of a single-payer system or even a public option for those who chose it, Democrats went along with the Obama compromise of adopting RomneyCare, the old Republican plan signed into law by Mitt Romney when he was governor of Massachusetts.

    This plan builds on the existing system of insurers and insurance plans and was explicitly designed to mimic previous Republican plans in order to assure passage in Congress. Notably, it includes the "individual mandate," which 19 Republicans first proposed in 1993 as a legislative alternative to President Clinton's healthcare reform bill. Today, Republicans attack the individual mandate as unconstitutional."

    Although I'm a staunch follower of the G.O.P. let's speculate what Mittcare might look like had he become President.Did he not pass it in Mass. as governor?

    So, no evidence of employers reducing hours to avoid paying the insurance...guess what's happening to me come December.

    I wasn't going to post this one, but I decided Beowulf_7 needed a sandbox to vent in.
