Why do people think the government is able to run health care or any other program at a profit?

does anyone remember the Mustang Ranch in Nevada? The owner did not pay his taxes and the government took it over and within one year it was bankrupt. Now the best part of this is the Mustang Ranch was a brothel it don't take to much business savy to run one. Come on look at the past, last week they wanted to buy 3 jets for themselves and we have people losing jobs homes and everything. Look this is not dem. rep. race or any other tag you can put on it. This is an attempt to gain power and control the people of this country how can anyone sell their freedom for government health care nothing is free.

And why did the Mustang Ranch owner not pay his taxes? Oh that's right, he was bankrupt and couldn't afford them.

First 3 lessons of a successful business: Location, location, location.

The problem with Nevada brothels is they cannot be located within city limits, leaving vast stretches of open desert to run a business from.

No surprise why it went out of business with the govt. running it.

People are like sheep. They follow the flock. Even if that's over a cliff.

People talk about how smart we are. How humans are smarter than animals. But animals don't get lost in the woods and have to be rescued.

Unless that animal once belonged to a person.

People are still voting Republican and Democrat. The R&D Party has proven it's commitment to bankrupting America. And yet people still vote to bankrupt themselves.

Hardly a smart thing to do.

But people come to dumb conclusions all the time.

So are you saying the government should get rid of Medicare, Medicade, and VA clinics/hospitals ?..... I guess you think they should take that money and spend it on PRIVATE insurance plans for all of our seniors and vetrans ?....since that would be cheaper and more efficient ...right ?

You don't make any sense man.....

Why can't the right make up their minds ?

One of the answers was ...Medicare and Medicade are overburdening and too expensive.... Yet, CONS KNOW that if any cuts were made to Medicare or Medicade, they would be the first to COMPLAIN !

Most people trust government.

Those of us who know better already know why the government wants to handle health care.

So they can charge twice as much for it, ration what little health care 25% of the money will pay for, and pocket the rest.

For a profit? I take that to mean that non-profit institutions or cooperatives designed to fund themselves are not worth their weight.

Folks, see more tunnel vision images at www.undergroundtrain.com.

That's the problem.

Medicare and Medicaid are bankrupting the country.

Reform is needed before it's too late.

If it didn't run a profit it would not owe taxes.

The Government can not run anything at a profit.

It's not in their DNA.

Explain how providing people with healthcare is an attempt to "gain power and control the people of this country."

I don't even care about a profit, they can't run anything without being billions in the red. It would be funny if it were not so sad.

At a profit? Who said anything about a profit?

i think that's the saddest part of the whole health care debate and people are missing it. however, you have to realize they are having town hall meetings to discuss the merits of a bill that isn't even written as of yet. which version of which bill exactly is it they're debating? at least there is only one bill going through the senate and it's ONLY 600+ pages long. i don't believe any rep. has read all the bills circulating through the house to be able to discuss them intelligently. i guess if you don't even bother reading them when you vote on them you don't have to read them to give intelligent answers either.

There was no one in the summer-house. Alyosha sat down and began to wait. He looked round the summer-house, which somehow struck him as a great deal more ancient than before. Though the day was just as fine as yesterday, it seemed a wretched little place this time. There was a circle on the table, left no doubt from the glass of brandy having been split the day before. Foolish and irrelevant ideas strayed about his mind, as they always do in a time of tedious waiting. He wondered, for instance, why he had sat down precisely in the same place as before, why not in the other seat. At last he felt very depressedódepressed by suspense and uncertainty. But he had not sat there more than a quarter of an hour, when he suddenly heard the thrum of a guitar somewhere quite close. People were sitting, or had only just sat down, somewhere in the bushes not more than twenty paces away. Alyosha suddenly recollected that on coming out of the summer-house the day before, he had caught a glimpse of an old green low garden-seat among the bushes on the left, by the fence. The people must be sitting on it now. Who were they?

I have no idea what the first poster just answered with, it sounds like he is working on a novel and wants to use this as a plug

There should be no worries over a federally supported program that offers affordable prices to keep the other competitors in line. The healthcare companies are spending more than $130 million this year to try to get Obama's plan to fail in Congress. The Obama admin realizes this and is trying to take efforts to dispel the misinformation that is out there. Some people think that having a public option will force the government to choose over the doctor's recommendations, but that as true, as Obama pointed out. The Republican noise machine won't stop at anything, even when it comes at the expense of being honest with themselves. They have said that Obama will force seniors to consider assisted suicide. This has been repeatedly their case for stopping this healthcare legislature. They are using dirty tactics to keep stalling as much they can. Already in Congress their numbers are dwindling so instead of cooperating, like they should, they are giving empty lectures. They've been stalling healthcare reform for nearly fifty years why would they want to talk now ?
