Why isn't the new U.S. health care program a good thing? I am apolitical and a registered Independent, so I'm not looking for a two-party flame war, but having just read the list of things that health care will provide, the only possibly "bad" thing I see is that some people will be forced to buy insurance or pay a fine. But otherwise, these seem to be good measures. I'm not very savvy when it comes to current events, so what am I missing? Why are some people so angry?

Had a beautiful baby girl a few months ago. Previous baby due to excellent insurance cost exactly $0. This baby, with crappy Aetna insurance close to $4k. This is after deductible, and using a doctor that was non-preferred (which we paid more for) I am still puzzled how I ended up getting charged this much. Anyway I got to thinking. Why is my out of pocket cost $4k for a birth with no complications? Why is the total cost for this birth $17 - $18k? [more inside]

We're not in a big city, so going to a professional probably isn't an option. What can she do to treat the leather so it stays looking like new? Specific brand names of products we can order are preferable.
I've decided to adopt a kitten for my fiance as a Christmas gift this year. She's an absolute animal lover, and she has been wanting to get a kitten for a while now (her cat of 15 years died this summer).

However, I'm going to arrange an assortment of kitten necessities for her to open on Christmas morning. Never having had a kitten, what do I need?
