I am lucky enough to have health insurance through my work. And I agree that something needs to be done to the insurance companies and the way they do business. But what I don't understand is why I should support this form of "reform". All I see that is going to happen is my insurance premiums and copays are going to go through the roof just so the crack whore who lives down the street and her 5+ kids can get healthcare for free!! She already is on welfare and foodstamps that I have to pay for through taxes, and she also has no intention of trying to get a real job and trying to take take care of herself as long as the government is there to bail her out.

Health care will not effect everyone. It may _affect_ everyone. C'mon guys/editors.

the use of "Effect" in the title is wrong. it should be "Affect."

I'm sorry, but grammatical errors drive me insane, especially since this is a news channel.

Love the morning crew, though! Go Mark, Don, Loren, Nick, and Bill!!! Watch you guys every morning!!

You do know that the "freeloaders" already have healthcare paid by the gov, right?
This reform is for those that are trying...they don't qualify for gov. assistance but can't find affordable health care.

I am a member of AARP and I never receive a phone call or email regarding my views on the bill....maybe it's because I have sent them emails to voice my DISatisfaction with their stand on the health care issue? Could this poll have been weighted so the results came out positive (in support of their stand all along)?

Well stated! We are now legally obligated to support those who will not even try to take care of themselves in any way or means! Why should they when, as you stated, they are being given a way of life that excludes any effort on their part?

Better than 80% of voters who pay no taxes and stand to get something for nothing approve of this plan. Good for them - more freebies at the expense of productive people. I'm sure this will bring everyone down to the same level. Good stuff.

On the bright side, maybe it'll force the Federal govt to address our porous borders. We can't afford to give freebies to the entire world, so we're going to need to get control over the influx of new citizens.

Those (83%) were people with Dementia and Alz. They thought the question pertained to healthcare they had, which is much better than what they will be getting in the future. When AARP endorsed Obamacare, thousands upon thousands dropped their membership with the orgainization. Same for the AMA. It's membership didn't endorse Obamacare, it's leadersip did.

Rick, if you want to pay more than half your income in taxes, you go right ahead. I'm gonna fight for mine. I am already in the highest tax bracket there is. Companies are in a whole other tax bracket. That's why WalMart donates so much in form of dollars and product. They get tax breaks. I can't afford to donate because they already take 34% of my pay for taxes that I will get no benefit from because they are giving it to those who are here "illegally". WE the tax payers, are supporting the whole world because the stupid government keeps giving it to those who break the law. Go figure. They are paying their own kind.

I would doubt Rick pays any taxes. Remember that 10% of the citizens that actually pay taxes contribute 95% of the federal taxes. The rest just complain about how miserable it is to live in the states.

I retired and burried my money in the back yard because Obama will find a way to get it otherwise. So now, I am just a po man with no income. Screw him!

Freeloaders also include the illegals that use the emergency room as a doctor's office and dont pay their bill. Obama is also, in the background, pushing through immigration reform, to make them legal,thus eligible for health insurance programs.

IF he cant keep American voters, he is going to make new American voters, that will vote the way they have been told, because they are so stupid, they believe the government knows what is best for them.

Get it out of your backyard and buy foreign currency. When the dollar hits the skid, you can buy back millions with foreign currency.

That's because they are old, and need to hurry up and die and make room for younger more liberal people, that really have a grasp on the new world.(end sarcasm)
