<<Under our current system of "Bushcare", private insurers skim 25%-30% off the top in excessive overhead & profit.

You mean to say that the United States government, with all its bureaucracy, would add less 'overhead' than private insurers locked in constant competition with one another?

There are a lot of valid reasons why people might support national healthcare legislation - reduced 'overhead' however, isn't one of them.

I think that the ability of politicians to skim spending power from Social Security "Trust Funds" and divert it to other purposes suggests that the Federal Government and our Federal politicians need take a back seat to NO ONE when it comes to slickering the rubes.
