I am anxiously awaiting market based healthcare, especially when they are able to use genetic testing to isolate the folks with predispositions to certtain diseases. That way, they can only insure people who aren't sick and aren't likely to get sick, thus fulfilling their primary duty to their shareholders, which is to get checks in the mail and not pay claims.

Sort of like home owners insurance. File a claim, get canceled. Don't have insurance, they cancel your mortgage instead.

But i digress. Once we figure out who isn't insurable vis-a-vis healthcare, we also know who to push off the sled!
