and my insurance blows wad as it is.
"...the McCain health plan would treat employer-paid health benefits as income that employees would have to pay taxes on. "
and 20 million more Americans would lose their health insurance as a result of this plan, bringing the total up to about 70 miliion, or
TWENTY PERCENT OF THE COUNTRY!!!
John McCain Believes The Key To Health Care Reform Is To Restore Control To The Patients Themselves. We want a system of health care in which everyone can afford and acquire the treatment and preventative care they need. Health care should be available to all and not limited by where you work or how much you make. Families should be in charge of their health care dollars and have more control over care.

What this means is that not only will families have to work for a living, they'll have to do their own research and get their own insurance on their own time, without the benefit of bulk purchase that employer-based benefits bring.
I would love to see John McCain get medical care like the rest of us- he'd be decrepit in about six months.
Don't forget, he's rich, and married an heiress who will pay all his medical bills, depsite his Senatorual coverage. He knows regular Americans as those he can use and scrape off his shoe.
