health care = who cares?

the talent show wraps up this week's latimes story about the repubbb's plan for healthcare in this country:

so, let's sum up the gop plan for medical overhaul that will be part of this "ownership society". first, they want to encourage employers to dump you from your existing insurance plan (and if you read the rest of the article, if doesn't sound like they need much convincing). second, they want to force you into an expensive insurance plan that will only cover "catastrophic" medical procedures. third, on top of the higher cost of your insurance policy, they want you start saving up any extra cash that you probably don't have lying around. finally, the whole point here is to ease the financial burden on your employer, make you pay more for less coverage, and encourage you to seek medical help as rarely as possible.
