    understand your point.  Your right, it would have been a big disruption in the fact that it would have been a new tax on a population that was in the middle of a financial crisis.  But, many of us with pre-existing conditions were already placed into a financial crisis especially if we had a serious condition, as well as, the uninsured.

    But, the money people were spending for insurance companies to insure them was probably more expensive than a tax.  I think we should have had the option of either paying into a single payer system or staying with the health insurance companies.  But Americans were not given a choice, but forced into another system that is dysfunctional because the insurance companies were dysfunctional and the very problem with healthcare from the get go.  They should have not been the only ones included in the planning of a health care system for the population.  It should have included a lot of other intake and done in a progressive way instead of throwing the people to the wolfs again.

    In the 1980s most of us were fully insured without deductions from our paychecks and most of our medical bills were taken care of.  This began to change as the insurance agencies began cutting services and charging more.  From there it has been downhill all the way.  And now they will continue to do what they have always done for profit.
