    Insurance companies tell doctors/hospitals what they will and won't pay for already.

  3. 8 Years of "Trickle Down" economics has only left a dribbling wet spot on working Americans's shoes!

    Good question Wolf about the folks that do not have insurance should we kick them out of the emergency room. Coons just nailed honey bun again by pointing out the reality of our current system!

    Why are you wasting time on this nonsense. Switching to Fox to watch the real news. Miners buried underground and CNN focuses on two idiots

    CNN just stopped covering the debate to go to the mine scene. I have smypathy for the mines but that is a terrible decission. Just terrible.

    I can't believe that after all the coverage you had today of the Chilian miners' rescue that you just switch to a political debate. I guess I'll have to start watching FOX News because they are the only ones with live coverage of the events in Chilie.

    when ms o'donnell has surgery and an incompetent doctor leaves gaze in her chest, and they give her 25 grand, and say take 2 asprin and call me in the morning, I'm sure she will love the tort reform she enacted

    What is real reform? There are many Americans without health care insurance and what are they to do when they earn minimum wage and their employer does not offer insurance? Or their employer keeps their hours down so that they do not have to offer health insurance coverage to their employees? How many Americans work hard and try to keep a roof over their head, food on the table, and do not have the extras that higher income Americans have? I believe that if you are talking real reform, then America should provide medical care and coverage to these individuals! Please, Please tell me what is real health care reform? Is that an individual that has to file bankruptcy due to an illness due to the fact that they do not have the finances available to purchase quality insurance? How is an indivudal earning minimum wage to pay an average $1000.00 deductible and then 20%?

    As I was watching this debate, I realize that if I was in fact able to vote in Delaware, I would not vote for Ms. O'Donnell. Not one time as she was asked a question did she answer it. Even when she was asked about her comment on "Evolution", she did not stand for what she quoted about the subject. Instead she spoke all around the question and never gave a concise answer. However she is quick to point out others discrepancies, and talk all around the subject with other issues, but never answer the question. As far as I am concerned, this quote completely discribes her and other GOP that I have heard speak recently, "If you cannot stand for something, then you will fall for anything".

    O'Donnell is RIGHT ON regarding her comments on health care reform! My husband and I are self-employed and WOULD LIKE to be able to purchase healthcare but every time we found a plan (throught much research) that we could afford, they told us they don't write insurance in the state where we live. If that ONE item had been part of the Obamacare bill we would have healthcare TODAY. And as self-employed Americans, I READ the part of the healthcare bill that will FINE us because we do not have healthcare and send us to JAIL–yes, JAIL–if we refuse to pay the fine or get healthcare. AND because our income is not low enough to qualify for the kind of FREE emergency care that an illegal alien would get, we do not qualify. Yet, we do not make enough to be able to pay for insurance.

    Wolf Blitzer's hypothetical about a person who ends up in emergency and can't pay is NOT solved by making citizens like us to pay up yet NOT receive good care in the end. That's what will happen under Obamacare. All we want is to be able to pay for our own care by allowing competition across state lines.

    If Americans are uncaring enough to vote this woman in, then we deserve the pain that this cold, uncaring woman will bring. Except for the fact that the Health care program is Obama's, most people would think it is wonderful that everyone has access to health care. There are people out there who would benefit from this program who are against it because President Obama signed it into law. This country is not going to be happy until it stops voting against its own best interest.
