Dr. Benjamin Rush was a Founding Father who signed the Declaration of Independence, served as Surgeon General in the Continental Army and attended the Continental Congress. He predicted:
"Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship to restrict the art of healing to one class of Men and deny equal privileges to others; the Constitution of the Republic should make a Special privilege for medical freedoms as well as religious freedom."
It amazing that Dr. Rush knew that insurance companies would deny coverage to the majority of Americans while they fawn over the rich.
A silver plan for me and my son will be 250 dollars cheaper then my present payment, and that's before any subsidies. This is not "government healthcare" as most on the right portray, single payer or a public option would be "government healthcare". Payments are made to private insurance companies not to the government.
