Mitch is too much of a chickenshit to go on TV with any other station besides FOX news. With how crappy all the media outlets are, that's saying a lot in regards to his cowardice.

both tort reform and selling across state lines are failed ideas. That's because both are dependent on health insurance companies deciding to lower prices totally of their own free will.

What the guy above was saying effectively is that the poor, unemployed and elderly don't matter. The Fox News questioner, to give him credit, tried to elicit an answer. However if McConnell were being interviewed on the BBC by Jeremy Paxman he would have torn him to pieces.

My Mom, a pensioner with no private health insurance just had a hip replacement in a 5 star facility with private room, an a la carte menu, a wine list and staff that were professional, caring and courteous. Was this unusual? No. It is what we in Europe take for granted.Sure all of this is available in the U.S as well, if you can afford expensive private insurance.

Forgive me for saying as a non American that "America has the finest healthcare system in the world" is an hilarious statement. We in western Europe are never turned away from hospitals for being poor, unemployed or not having expensive private insurance. Our health care is payed for by our national insurance contributions if we are employed. If we are unemployed these payments are automatically paid for by our unemployment benefit. It works!

Let me tell you what we're not going to do. We are not going to stop screwing 30 million Americans. Ha ha ... I got my government provided healthcare... so all you tax paying suckers can kiss my senatorial behind.

I'm pretty sure there are plenty of other European countries that have better healthcare anyway.

There never is a magical answer, nothing will ever be easy or magical, it's impossible. Just like ALL other steps in our evolution and societal growth, in every land on this planet, we must take steps, and it will ALWAYS be a struggle to get where we want to be. It is this journey that makes the goal worth the effort, otherwise, it will be taken for granted and shoved aside like everything else we as a people already take for granted...

My husband came from England and Germany, nation-wide healthcare literally SAVED him from losing his leg due to an infestation caused by an insect! When he came over here to marry me, he was appalled by the healthcare crap we're trying to move away from. He agrees ObamaCare is a great plan, even if it is just one step in the right direction to resolve a LOT of problems! If ObamaCare had come into existence 5 years ago, my sister would not be facing hospital bills without insurance to cover her.
