This is just another attempt to grow government at a time when government needs to be GUTTED.

Resistance, calm down. The government controls Medicare and it works just fine.

I want my government to protect me with rules and regulations. The capitalist sure doesn't care about your health or well being. He cares only about his bottom line.
