    You were offered to continue your insurance because the company is required to do so under the provisions of the Consolidate Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA). You can continue your same insurance but at your expense. That $600 was what the company had been paying on your behalf. When...

    Issue 3 The legal system This will be shorter than the others because while it is a factor it would be one of the easier issues to fix.

    Issue 2 Personal greed Let me start by saying that my intent with discussing this issue is not to talk about the merits of each factor and why for example, unions are good, bad, or otherwise. But to discuss their effect on the healthcare system as seen from the perspective of someone in...

    Issue 1 The American capitalist system. The system works and is driven 100% by profit motive. All public companies are owned by stockholders. Those stockholders have one agenda, one reason for owning that stock, to make money. Return on investment is the reason we as a society by stocks. Sure...

    I can't wait for the movie to come out on DVD or either come to the 1 theater small town where I live. I'd love to see it. I think I would have a different perspective than most of the forum members. One of the reasons I've been so scarce on the forum the last year is because I've been busy...
