I think they (companies) have their own best interest at heart. Dead customers don't buy anything. Products that kill people find it rough going in the market place.

Do you really think the government has your best interest at heart?

Sure they do, they're giving me free healthcare, cheap cars, free TVs and now i don't have to pay my mortgage... the president told me so.

The difference in this case is that the government is trying to move from regulating health care, which is perfectly acceptable, to operating health care, which is not.
As if they weren't already operating health care. Do you know Medicare and Medicaid? The Medicare reimbursement rate is already the benchmark for private insurance reimbursement to physicians. Also, people are ignoring the fact the government is already pouring in ton of money (fed, state, local) into hospitals to fund their operation in the name of "charity care". Take a look at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and Boston Medical Center in the South End of Boston. Their operation budget is mostly derived from tax money to provide care to patients who can't afford care. The system now is really fucked up that people that work hard have no access to care while people who don't work, or choose a not so healthy life style get free care from these programs. The current system is broken in so many levels, it's not even funny.
