Let's all work hard to keep that from happening here.Well, all I'll say on this subject is I would prefer that the goverment NOT force any private citizien to purchase any good or service, health insurance included. I think we may be in for trouble. Regarding European-style socialism or health care, I can say that after living and working a year in Norway I can tell you that socialized medicine is not all it's cracked up to be--long waits, rationing, and--yes--"death panels" who decide if someone is "too old" for treatment (in any number of cases brought to my attention folks in their mid-to late 50s were denied heart treatments on the basis of their being too old for such operations. I kid you not, fellas). I guess we'll see what happens here.I suspect a constitutional challenge to something this big might be successful, but we won't know that for a while. Considering the amount of money states will now have to put up, I don't think the states will be able to do so without going financially bust.You know, I might just stick to "Yankee topics" most of the time!!!Mike
