In my opinion, it'd be fair/better if people can participate in discussing whether the new healthcare plan approved or not. Because it is about our health not "money's health". We must have a voice in this.

You people really are this dim, aren't you? Insurance companies exist to make money, but there are more than one, and they must compete for your business. You have choices. Gov't is compulsion, not choice. You think things are bad now? Wait...

no chris, unfortunately you seem to be the dim one. you currently have no choice, your deluded in believing you do. insurance companies are like gas stations 4 on a corner by a freeway entrance. govt is not compulsion, it will be an option.

An option? You don't read much do you. Everyone is mandated to buy insurance, unless of course you are unemployed, illegal or a slacker, then the taxpayer will buy it for you. Vacuous liberals are known as blind followers but this is rediculous.

a 5% profit margin on a good year is not profiteering! But I guess in Seattle if you make a profite your evil. No wonder Boeing and others are leaving the NW!!!
