Marla...even if your dream and delussional Health Care plan passes, NOT all will be covered. There will be millions of people that will still be uninsured, what about them?

The plan won't kick in about five years, what about the people that needs it now, what about them? Where will they be in five years?

People that have Health Care Insurance now, because they have a job. Because the President made it a big issue to FIX Health Care and not focus on our economy, what happens when they lose their job and health care and become one of the many relying on the dwindling unemployment benefits, all of a sudden there will be more people that need free Health Care.

Oh and those undocument workers that will be covered by Health Care versus actual citizen who won't make the cut.

Now if we focused on our economy and created a way for business to be successful and for people to get a substancial tax break. I believe it will have a positive effect, rather than those smoke screen speeches our dearly beloved President makes, and then reality hits. Still no jobs. Still people losing their jobs; not as much, but a job lost is a family in crisis and a family dependant on that unemployment check. Jobs are still cutting back with lost in profits...

I know for many health care is a real issue, and this job lost, bad economy is having a chain reaction in shutting down everything.

Bottom line is if there is NO money, even government can't fix it. Women are being turned away from FREE cancer screening because of Budget cuts.

Also if this bill pass, people will HAVE to buy insurance or get fined or go to jail.

American health care rated 37th in the world...behind Croatia? And ahead of Costa Rica?

Get sick...stay home...you'll be fine. Go to the doctor...take a chance...you may be dead-er than a door nail bumbye soon.

Jim Henshaw says "But don't try to foist your desires for a rural property onto your neighbors by telling them how to manage their own property and live their lives." but then does exactly that by telling opponents of B&Bs to sell their property and move elsewhere.
Jim, what if a neighbor wanted to open a take out food stand next door to your house. Would you be okay with that. After all, it is their property. How about a tavern, would that be okay. After all, it is their property. Henshaw needs to go back to civics class.

For all those complaining about housing, medical benefits, food, etc., obtain Micronesian citizenship and all your problems will be solved. Lingle will see to that. $1,500,000 was quickly found by her to assist in their medical problems recently.

I believe the B & B's in Kailua is not what the majority of the residences want in their neighborhood and should be stopped because the zoning is R-5 and not for commerial use.

What councilmember who votes for this is not voting in the best interest of the voters and may not be around in the next election.

The voters of this state will be voting smart in the next election.
