What Romney said when pressed on this issue is that states should be allowed to decide what they want for healthcare and not be dictated to by the federal government. There are enough liberals in this state, including the liberal democrat legislature, who wanted state mandated healthcare coverage so that Romney passed it. Deval Patrick strengthened what Romney put into place in terms of state over sight. If the majority of taxpayers in Massachusetts want the current health care system in Mass as it exists that should be fine with the rest of the country and the minority of Massachusetts voters who apparently disagree. It's a whole different situation for the federal government to be regulating and implementing healthcare in a country of greater than 300 million people, especially when that federal government is already 16 trillion dollars in debt. Health care has to be paid for by somebody. The past month the US gained 80,000 jobs while it added 85,000 to some form of government assistance. Some one has to pay for all of these government programs. There isn't enough revenue to pay for this and make it work well.

Though most rinks ask patrons to sign a waiver stating they won't hold the rink responsible in case of accidents, having and enforcing safety rules will keep accidents to a minimum and strengthen the position of the rink should an accident occur and litigation follow.

Assess the coverage on drug prescriptions. The best way to go about this is by looking for medication that you usually buy for a pre existing condition and compare the plans that offer it without an additional cost. Thanks. Regards, http://www.hcg1234.com/ | hcg1234

The Democrats increased taxes on the people by passing a bill to give health care for all. What bothers people is that the Democrats said the health care bill was not a tax; but, fought for the health care law in the courts by calling it a tax. Now the people have a large tax increase for health care and the government will run it.

There are a variety of complex and difficult laws put in place for health care billing. These laws protect patients from being overcharged on services received, fraud and mistakes made by the insurance company. Thanks. Regards, http://www.ipc-athletics.org/
