In these uncertain economic times, we know that many people 50 and over may be experiencing financial difficulties and some may have even recently lost their jobs.

If you are one of the many people who have been impacted by an unexpected job loss, AARP would like to offer you a complimentary 1-year membership, or for current members, a complimentary 1-year membership extension.

wow, no less than 27% of us here on catholic match are statists. too bad.

and to Marie's argument, there's nothing that says you have to drive a car, so purchasing car insurance truly is optional, whereas if you breathe, liberals want the government to compel you to buy health insurance as a condition of living. that is tyranny, and auto insurance is not an equivalent practice or issue.

Just a quick mention per the world health organization rating;

This ranking's criteria are different then what we expect in current health care. For instance, I believe it is Germany who is rated to have a lower new born mortality than the US. There is a hitch here, in the US we count every child born or a pregnant mother who deliveres earily, and if that child dies we indicate it as a newborn mortality, hence our stats, according to WHO, goes down. These other countries may not count the death of who we call a new born untill that child has either survied the first month out of the womb or made it to year one. S

SO these world health org's numbers are based upon each indiviaual's country's standard of retporting. When we place the other countries equal to our HIGHER standards and moral expectations these other countries fail miserably.

Well, that is if you choose that our country should also "change" our defiintion of moral and quality health care. We need to fix our HEALTHCARE repayment/competativeness, but not our healthcare system or structure of our Government to allow health care for one another.
