I must admit that I have actually read several sections of the bill...not the whole thing, as I doubt anyone has.

Bread and games, is the order of the day, politically and media-wise, imo. Lots of noise, very few significant needs are ever really addressed these days..
Indeed! I try to avoid it but can't help myself when it comes to certain news items. It did shock me that the Prez made such a series of comments with such certainty given that he was a Con Law professor at some point. It is either arrogance or a misunderstanding of the role of the SCOTUS; either one just as bad as the other for him.

I wholeheartedly agree with you that the underlying issue with "health care" is the state of Americans health. Without addressing how unhealthy we are as a society and how little many people care about taking care of themselves, throwing money at the problem or requiring people to have health insurance is like putting lipstick on a pig. (Pun sort of intended.)
