Health care in terms everyone can understand

Having trouble understanding the health care bill? Ron Futrell puts it in terms everyone can understand:
Working in the media for almost 30 years means that I have a lot of good leftist friends. Now that we all keep in touch on Facebook, I end up with a pretty lively page sometimes. We rarely find common ground politically, but when we do, it’s a wonderful thing. I think we’ve made a connection on the “healthcare” issue.

After the bill passed in the House the other night I decided I had had enough and after bantering back and forth for a while on the issue, I decided to agree with them. This bill is a great idea! I told them I would dump by health insurance in the morning (tired of those $500.00 per month payments for my wife and me) and I would look forward to them paying my bill. My post went something like this:

I’m going to dump my health insurance tomorrow and see if my liberal Democrat friends will chip in and foot the bill. Thanks. This is a great idea you cooked up. Where can I pick up the cash? I’ll meet you where ever you’d like. Thanks again!

I didn’t get much of a response from my liberal Democrat friends, so I figured I’d continue the idea that they cooked up in the House, Senate and White House. I explained that I was having trouble with my car and besides, it’s low on gas right now...
