7 pages of what?

You don't trust the gubment with your healthcare needs?  I mean like take the post office for example, the mail has been reliable for years and its gubment runs with your tax dollars and a friendly union as well!?

Maybe we should have the post office run health care.

I know, I know, very hard to believe.  There was a trick question or two on Federal Judge rulings and who signed it.  See, I'm only partly human after all.

I'm not sure that would be a good idea.

Having worked for the USPS in the past, and, having family members who have also worked for the USPS, Dad, Uncle and two cousins...
I have to agree with VJ on this one. It would be a very scary move.  :o

And we think gubment will do better with our health than they have the post office?  That was the point of my post even tho I jacked it up on a fishing expedition

Why not?  The Postal Service wont screw up health care any worse than the department of Obamacare.

It might work, just dont get sick or need major surgery on a Sunday. Of course your rates will increase 39 cents every year just like a stamp.

Might not be any babies delivered on Sat. soon. The ambulance ride to the hospital in those little carrier trucks might be uncomfortable too.

I must of missed that one. When did stamps go up 39 cents in a year?

Driving on public roads is a privilege. If you drive only on private property you don't need insurance.
Therefore this is a choice made by an individual. The healthcare tax/fine/penalty is not a choice but commanded by the government and will be enforced by the IRS.

Here in Ohio auto insurance is mandated, you want to know how many drivers here DON'T have it? And as stated, driving a car is a privledge, and I can get insurance from a wide range of different companies to choose from and in any amount I choose. Even though car insurance is mandated, I still pay high premiums for uninsured motorists, well, why is that if insurance is mandated for all. Health care is the same way, we already pay for all who are uninsured, well, why get it mandated if its already being payed for?

Correct. Participation in auto insurance is voluntary, and only mandated if you choose to drive...
