Every single person in my immediate family has Health Care coverage. I have full coverage due to the fact that I am US military, My father and stepmother are employees of UVA and pays very little for his insurance, my sister and mother are both employeed by PRA International and also pay very little for health care, and my stepfather is self-employed and provides health insurance for himself and his 3 employees, none of them have seen a "30% increase" in their cost in the past year, nor have they seen a 100% increase in the last nine years, guess my whole family just lucked out and isn't being hit by the health care crisis like the other 90% of Americans that DO NOT want this bill to happen.

See other thread with raging health care debate more specifically my post on political correctness and over regulation being the downfall of us all.

Wonder where the money for that comes from.... hmmm.

the money comes from people who buy insurance. we pay more premiums because of the "name brand coupon".

no defense of insurance practice here.

I'd fire your ungrateful *** if it was up to me. You have a job and a health care plan. There are a lot of people out there who would swap places with you in a heartbeat.

On a personal note, I am in a high deductible plan and would have to pay 100% of the bill (until we hit $5,000 in costs). Since I am not a girly-man like you I do not get sick and therefore save money by doing it this way.

Side note: I used to wrestle when I was a kid. One time I was going to a tournament and had to lose 2 pounds in 2 hours. I did it by chewing a huge mouthful of Big Red gum and spitting into a large cup (16 oz of spit = 1 pound). After spitting into a cup for 2-3 hours I made my weight class. Of course, I promptly got my *** stomped because I was dehydrated as hell. In the end it just stunted my growth and made me the disgusting troll that I am today (but at least I have a good story to tell)...
