  •  Co-ops can't admit sick people... (0+ / 0-)

    And they will cost a lot of money to buy in to them.

    Just like a co-op apartment, joining a co-op of other patients will be a very big investment.

    Just as you would not want to have health insurance with a $500,000 cap if you got a liver or brain tumor, you would not want to join a co-op that could not offer coverage to people that was limited in any way.

    That really makes the situation potentially ugly, because no co-op would be large enough to do that effectively.  

    Why not single payer? you know -its our only shot at REAL affordability and universality.. why are they blowing it? Why the lies?
