Of course insane healthcare prices are not worth writing a letter about. Maybe he likes these visits.

But healthcare prices won't be insane much longer. Our Great Socialist, I mean President, is giving us healthcare for free. No one will have to pay for anything, right?

Jack, You may want to schedule an appointment with a mental health professional to discuss your **** fixation.

The 6 biggest scams, in order: 1. Taxes (a necessary evil, but VASTLY abused to fund massive fraud, waste and abuse, and to line "public servants' pockets) 2. Healthcare (come on, $5 for a Bandaid and $8 for Tylenol? Who's kidding who?) 3. Social Security (in reality a gov't run Ponzi scheme) 4. Insurance (They're happy to take your money, but you have to fight them tooth and nail when it comes time to file a claim. You NEVER get what you're due.) 5. Gas prices--let's face it, they've got us over an oil-filled barrel, what what part of our anatomy exposed for "drilling"? 6. would have to be (most) lawyers.

st0ne, In keeping with you #1 the government makes more per gallon of gasoline than the producers, refiners, and retailers combined.

Jack, As I see it you have two choices.

1) You can do nothing and continue to whine about it.

2) You can open your own refinery and sell gas to all of us for much less than URC.

Based on your history I'm sure you'll just continue to whine. How's it been working out for ya?

I'm I happy about gas prices? Of course not, could I whine about it? Of course, but what good does it do?

oh yes, we can all just open our own refineries. I hate when people say crap like that, no logic what-so-ever.

Write10 you know what crap I hate? People complaining endlessly and not doing anything.

Jack can write endless letters whining and it won't change anything. Now that is illogical.

U.S. is pushing out 7 1/2 millions of crude a day, has a 200 day supply in reserve, gasoline and diesel prices constantly increasing, and people think we need a keystone pipeline.

reader, Gulf Coast refineries are operating at far less than optimal capacity. There are abundant reserves to the north with a bottle neck around Cushing, OK so yes it would help. It would also put a lot of people to work building it through private sector companies and reduce our imports from "less than friendly" countries.

Another opinion, I hate to burst your bubble. That person in the white house is not going to give the working class free health care. The thing is that all companies must provide access to health care. It is then up to the employee to purchase it or not. The plan that I was able to afford is basically a wellness plan. As long as I go to a doctor for a check up and have nothing wrong, they will help pay. If the doctor finds something wrong, then I pay through the nose. So why do I pay for this. Because that person in the white house said that by next year if I do not have insurance I will be fined.

Employers are off the hook because they provided access, that person in the white house can say that all Americans have access to health care, also be able to punish the ones who can not afford to pay for health care.

Jack great article. Your telling it like it is. As for "some" of the other comments that have been made goes to show you what's wrong with this country. Just a bunch of sheep in the pasture playing follow the leader.

guessagain: trust me, I know that people will not get free healthcare. Nothing's free. The working class in this country will pay for the healthcare of all of the lazy people that are unwilling to work through all of the new taxes that are being created by this "free" healthcare bill. And forcing people to buy something is about as un-contitutional as things get. But the supreme court ruled, this is not a law, it is a TAX!!

Oops, should have been un-constitutional.
