Healthcare a Seattle solution

Seattle Clinic
I came across this solution to our health care problem from a small Seattle clinic. At first glance it looked like a good idea until you read further and find out the actual costs. Maximum $119 per month for primary care sounded great but didn't cover catastrophic events. The patient would have to get outside coverage for that at a max cost of $400 per month with high deductables. Not really something everybody could afford and would be about the same cost as what the average per patient costs are right now.
Maybe the solution to this problem is to threaten all of congress with a national referendom to cut off their health care. Let them be one of the 50 million without insurance and see what kind of coverage they could get with their conditions. Remember a whole bunch of them are up there in years and I'm sure have pre existing conditions.
Then there was Sen. Grassly who at a town hall meeting basically told the audience I've got mine the hell with you. He instructed the questioner to either get a job with Caterpiller (which has been laying off people the last several months). Or he could get a job with the government. This from the party that wants to shrink the government small enough to drowned in a bath tub. In other words he's telling us to drop dead. Remember that the next time he comes up for reelection.

Grassley is a first class horses ass but they continue to vote for him. He's a repug slug like most of the rest of them.

Grassley's atrophied, walnut-sized Republican heart beats only for the insurance and drug companies, and the rest of the health care industry.

That $119/month plan might be of some value to a young person who's in good health and doesn't do work that presents little danger of injury or exposure to illness. Anyone else would be taking a bit chance.

Yikes, my second paragraph in the previous comment should read:

Great idea to take the health insurance off politicians, other people's reality might bite them where they need to be bitten.

I really wish to hell there was away that Obama could give them a month to come up with equitable health care for all or theirs would be discontinued.
