Why don't they just spend the money and stop trying to break the constitution. Obama will go down in History as the first black president, and he will also be known as the president who brought back slavery. And his Attorney General will be known as the first one to not try to defend a person's civil rights.

Senior Citizen may be a little fearful about other people finding out their business. I know because that is the way Herb’s mother is. But I just do not see how young people with clear minds can get led astray by a poor senior who is suspicious.
It seems to me that Mr. Obama is right about cutting out the middle man, those big insurance companies, to save a lot of our money and I do not worry about the government being able to read my medical records. My goodness, I have nothing to hide and besides I just do not think the government would want to waste their time reading about my appendicitis or hysterectomy. I love to talk about them, but most people do not seem interested.
We Senior Citizens have time to research and this is what makes us senior citizens suspicious:(This has been all over the news and on the internet)

Cancer clinics around the country are turning away thousands of Medicare patients because of sequester budget cuts, the Washington Post reports.

Oncologists say the reduced funding for Medicare makes it impossible to administer expensive chemotherapy drugs to those patients and remain in business.

As a result, the patients will be forced to seek care in more expensive settings like hospitals, which in some localities may not even have the capacity to treat them, the Post said.

Cancer patients have been hit hard by the sequester because of the way the drugs are covered under Medicare. Medications for seniors generally fall under the optional Medicare Part D private insurance coverage. Because the cancer drugs are administered by doctors, often by infusion, they are paid for by Medicare's Part B, which is subject to the sequester cut, the Post said.

My goodness, it is no wonder your outlook is so gloomy. I mean no disrespect when I say the news and opinions you have been reading about health care are all negative. But that is not the full picture. Herb’s mother does the same thing while actually enjoying the best of care and medical treatment. Maybe that just happens with age.

If all you want is someone to pay your medical bills, then uncle sugar is the natural place to go, but that isn't insurance. Insurance companies have rates, those rates are based on loss actuaries. When Obama Care said that pre-existing conditions had to be covered, they blew all of the rations out of the water. That's why everyone's rates are now going up. Insurance is a gamble that the insurance company takes. If you are healthy, they win, but if your sickly you win.

I am unsure what you mean about an uncle sugar and we certainly do not need anyone to pay our medical bills. We are not rich and thank goodness both of us are in good health for our age. We both now have Medicare and so do some of our friends who are not so fortunate financially or medically. They are really thankful for Medicare like we are.

I really do know how insurance works. They have to make a profit to stay in business. It seems to me it would be smarter to run the insurance fund as a non-profit so we could save a lot of money. That is the only problem we see with Mr. Obama’s program. Why would he want to keep the private insurance companies involved? Oh well, maybe it is so all those employees will not lose their jobs. Still, they sell all kinds of insurance that have nothing to do with medicine.

Putting aside the fact that we're not "bankrupt" or going to GO "bankrupt," why the hell would Mittens' name on such a plan make it work better?
You're clueless.
Because its not Obama, anyone would be better.

None of those things are true, and no one's trying to "break the Constitution." You're hysterical.

At least you're honest about your Obama Derangement Syndrome.

Obviously Obama's better than Romney would've been, probably better than McCain, again OBVIOUSLY way better than our worst modern President, G.W. "Dumbya" Bush.

Obama is the very worst Pres. in History. Which other one's were Muslim, unpatriotic, race instagaitor, ignores Constitution-does what he wants, keeps spending taxpayers money, in favor of illegal aliens rather than American Citizen and sending people to their death with Obamacare?

I AM YHVH DEITY THE FARTHER CIPHER 888

YHVH suspends mercy in response to god (government of deceivers) suspension of inalienable rights ( life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness) in the American Holocaust (Moral corruption, suspension of Habeas Corpus to avoid liabilities - Fraud - Terminal Injustice - Economic oppression - Murderbyproxy - Population Control - death fix it>deficit<). Those entrusted with protecting American Citizens by enforcing the laws of the United States Constitution and refusing to do so for personal gain is Treason / Terrorism. Terrorism begets terrorism. Government Officials achieving the National goal set in Executive Order 12871 reducing government (we the people) reducing government spending (no due process, no justice, no liabilities, just murder and mayhem through lie, delay and deny til you die tactics).

Thank YHVH, YHVH welcome, YHVH bless, YHVH way

You
Have
Victory
Halleluejah!

This shall serve as yet another tribute to members of my postal/military /government congressional, federal, state and local family and their family members; those who lost love ones or will soon lose love ones and those who may survive the American Holocaust. I write this in persecution with YHVH; your remembrance and your strength

Thank YHVH FARTHER
