(Note: What is missing in this debate is the savings derived from taking the cost of health insurance out of the cost of manufactured goods. Were health care reform to mandate that savings be passed to consumers, the economy would receive an immediate boost in the form of reduced prices for goods. Our manufacturers would be on a level playing field with foreign companies based in single payer/universal health care countries.)

As Barney Frank said, debating with such people is like arguing with the dining room table. But at least the table won’t interrupt you when you speak.
