  •  Well, here's what springs to my eye: (0+ / 0-)

    illegal aliens from other countries that are not supposed to be here.  And remember if they have a baby in the US they are automatically a US citizen.

    Having a baby in the US doesn't make an illegal alien into a citizen.  The baby is a citizen, but plenty of illegal aliens with US citizen children get deported every year.

    Who is the largest provider of insurance coverage in the USA currently....you guessed it our very own federal government.  Its called Medicaid (for the poor) and Medicare (for the old).  Nearly 60 to 65% of services provided by Dr and hospitals are paid by the government.

    This is true, and the people covered by Medicare and Medicaid are in general high-risk and expensive.  Adding a bunch of younger, healthier people would make costs go down on average.  

    P.S. not including the federal governments SPECIAL plan that covers all of our senators, house of Reps and the President for the remainder of their lives.

    The "government's special plan" covering senators & representatives is also the ordinary health insurance that covers government employees, like many private companies offer to their employees.  

    The politicians trying to fix the problem don't even use our current system.  If they are going to fix the system, they should be required to use it!!

    Politicians make too much money to qualify for Medicaid, but those that are over age 65 can and do use Medicare.

    TORT REFORM TO ELEMINATE REDICULOUS LAWSUITS THAT ALSO RUN UP THE COST IN THE SYSTEM AND MAKE INSURANCE TOO EXPENSIVE FOR PEOPLE TO AFFORD.

    States that have passed tort reform have seen little or no reduction in health costs.  A better way to eliminate malpractice suits would be to improve medical discipline and remove malpracticing doctors.

    Here is a reminder of a few government programs that lose millions and billions each year!!
    US Postal Service

    The Postal Service does not lose money, it breaks even as required by law.  

    Renewable energy brings national security.
