Do you see what the problem becomes? The problem becomes what do we want to cover and for how long. The answer depends on the amount of resources you want to devote to that issue. We could cover every medical condition for everyone forever until they die. Do we want to pay that amount of money as a society? What are the other implications of developing that kind of system? What abuses will occur? When you start taking other people's money to do something for yourself, you will find that other people have other priorities. Maybe they prefer to save their money for retirement. Maybe they prefer to use that money to provide their kids an education instead of healthcare. Maybe they want to buy a nicer car instead. Who knows?
The problem you have is that we as a society don't agree on what the best use of our money is yet. Clearly we agree it was wasted on this website so far. What other waste are we going to find? If we find too much problems with the system, we don't have an easy out when its run by the government. When it is run privately, we can take our money somewhere else. Don't like this hospital? There is another one down the road. Don't like this doctor, go to that one. Don't want to pay this money for all the options on that health care plan? Here is an alternative cheaper one that doesn't cover quite as much.
When you have the government run it you start losing the options. And you don't have the option to picking up your money and taking it elsewhere. Unless you are open to moving overseas.
The ObamaCare web site is an example of Splat Programming. What is Splat Programming?
Darn it, what am I going to use for Checkpoint command line then? Because with Checkpoint, SPLAT is where its AT!
If there is a stupid system, just figure out the system and use it to your advantage. The interview will sort you out if you aren't the type of worker they are looking for.
I started looking for a job and got one within 2 weeks, this was only a few months ago. It can be done.
It's fine to find yourself with different political ideas than Santorum has, but take a few breaths and calm down. You'll have a happier life.
I find it amusing that you haven't been able to find any Democrat policies that will reverse Global Warming, eliminate the deficit or turn our economy around. So the 3 major problems facing our country today really aren't being addressed by the Democrat party. Don't you find that alarming?
I don't see how Santorum is any worse than any other politician out there, except that he is playing to a different base than you prefer personally.
While I understand that Jonas brothers isn't the best in the world, I'm still not equating being a music engineer for the Jonas brothers with working for the steel mills and railroads in the 1800's. But this is Slashdot, so there's always someone looking for a revolution.
