Damn you, Portland Mercury! I am intrigued by an incredibly hot cover picture and what I get is a 40-year old dude talking about how he can't get his angsty-sexual-trauma-turned-movie-career into film festivals? EPIC FAIL.
@Barfolumew -- Your car insurance analogy is asinine. Making idiots who rack up moving violations pay more for their car insurance IS NOT THE SAME as providing a means of care and financial protection for someone who contracts, say, breast cancer through no fault of their own (or maybe the fault of toxins at their work or community? But you'd be against the government regulating that too, so nevermind). @Ted and @IndiePDX do a pretty good job of explaining how health insurance needs to work for you, so I won't repeat them. As for the cost, did your party pay up front for the two wars and tax cuts for the wealthy it rammed through Congress when Bush was in charge? NO. Will we be paying TRILLIONS of dollars in the future for veterans with PTSD and artificial limbs, and the rebuilding of two nations we destroyed, to name a few of the hidden costs of said actions? YES. That's your legacy. Obama and the Democrats just made health insurance possible for 30+ million people. We'll let history decide who was right. Douche.
I'm a young healthy reader, and damn right I'll be happy that people will be required to buy (heavily subsidized) insurance, which expands the risk pool, saves lives through access to regular preventative care and makes insurance cheaper and better for everybody. Do you know how the concept of insurance works, dumbass? Have fun living in a healthier country and not subsidizing insurance company CEO blowjobs and our current system of Emergency Room/Bankruptcy/Funeral Home health care despite your insane, illogical ideology!
