Ok Fellas, if you have an opinion on this important issue say it here. My two bits is that reform is needed, but this half baked compromise will make things worse. We need a full blown public option for anyone who wants it. Keep it simple and tie it into having a job. Folks trully unable to work get coverage until they are able to work. If you are a lazy fat-ass, tough shit. No work, no medical. A public option will compete against the insurance coverage model and make it obselete, or far less relevant. The drugs companies would be put under heavy scrutiny, and any crooks should be arrested , locked up and throw away the keys. No kidding, those bastards with their addictive products are ruining folks. Rennick Welby M.D.
