This is why the gubermint had to get rid of the mafia, so they could take over all of their rackets, and invent a few of their own. This professional wrestling style production of a so called govt. is a sham and COMPLETELY sold out!!

I can't believe the insurance industry. The rich get richer and the middle class get to help them get that way.

That may be true but Obamacare is going to make it worse for the middle class. I hope they tear it up and start over. If that thing goes thru we are under the government's thumb. They will totally control our healthcare and tell what we can and can't do. Doctors should be able to treat patients, not the government people sitting behind a desk that don't have a clue. Every person is different and one mold doesn't fit everybody. I am also sick of my car insurance and house insurance going up every time I get a statement! You are right, the middle class gets the brunt of everything!

CHEERS!

If any single one of you ever tried to buy your own private health insurance you would gladly be in favor of any health care reform. Anyone that is against health care reform is either getting Medicaid, Medicare, has insurance where you work, or is irresponsible and does not have any health insurance at all. The whole issue of Health Care Reform is not about government forcing anyone to buy health insurance. It is about changing a corrupt health care system.

I'm not really sure why this has to become a dem vs rep....or a name calling and threat contest...it is just to discuss the proposition and opinions about it. I am NOT an Obama fan, and definitely not a fan of the "healthcare reform bill" in it's entirety. It does have some good points, but unfortunately it was passed waaaay before it was ready. The bad outnumbers the good at this point, but hopefully it can be made into something positive for all Americans. I do NOT think forcing people to purchase insurance as the government sees fit is in any way the answer to making healthcare affordable for all.....
I agree with you and I think people need to be wary cause although there are some good points in the bill in the long run I feel it's going to be a big nightmare for all of us in the end. I for one don't want the government controlling my health care. Right now I could not ask for better care, I have a great doctor one who actually will try and get you off meds instead of putting you on more like alot of doctors do, and one who also does not hesitate to send you to a specialist if you need one. We moved here form Ca. years ago and I have always felt the medical care here is far superior to what I had in Ca. Once the government is involved in your healthcare they can do whatever they want, they may say now that you can keep your doctor but whose to say down the road that won't change since nobody really understands all the ins and outs about the program. Just the whole way it was forced on us is a turn off to me.I for one sure don't want it as it stands now. If it's such a great system why aren't they all on it, why do they have their own special health care, think about that? What is good for us in my opinion should be good enough for them if it's such great program? My question is how do you put millions more people on a health care system and still get the same quality of care, you aren't going too, no way! And if people can't afford to buy insurance, they can't afford to pay the fine for not having it either. The whole thing makes no sense to me. I have friend that does not have Insurance, they both work and her husband's job offers it but they can't afford to pay out what their share would be for it. As she said they can make it mandatory for us to buy it, but if you don't have the money you don't have it so we can't afford it nor a fine for not having it. Her question was, where does that put us? Right now at least they get health care through the county system. There is alot more involved in this whole plan that people need to ask questions about before deciding it's so great. Affordbable healthcare for all sounds good on the surface but is it in fact affordable for all as my friend asked?

In the Internet you can be anything you want.
Why do you choose to be stupid?
Many of the people that voted for Obama, have an understanding of what the healthcare bill does and doesn't do.
We don't listen to politicians, we research.
It's nothing like any other countries, it's like Massachusetts, where Obama won by 30%! Ask yourself, if it's so expensive for all those people, and all of them pay extra for it, why do they have an overwhelming majority that agree with it?
Hmm... Maybe your shepherds have misled you?
No, never mind, nobody will ever convince you of that.
Maybe it's your shepards that have misled you, has that thought ever crossed your mind? I've read up on the plan and I'm just as confused as ever. It has a few good points, yes, but for the most part I don't feel it's really going to be Affordabe Healthcare for all. When you are putting millions more people on a health system, it's going to cost someone, and that someone is us the taxpayers. Do you all think this great healthcare is Free for everyone, it's going to cost big time! And if people could not afford insurance before, how will they afford it now, and then if they don't get it they will be fined. Those living on a tight budget can't do either so where will that put all of them? There are tons of unanswered questions about this whole program still, and nobody really seems to have the answers. Seems to be if you have to pass a bill to start with as sneaky as they did Obamacare that should say something righ there, what are they hiding and why? I don't think it's going to be all so great for everyone? And what about people who don't have an insurance program they buy into like the military and retired military, how does this all effect them? Are they now going to have to buy insurance too, will they be dropping military health coverage for those that serve our country? How does all that fit into the picture, as I said there are many questions to be asked? Are we going to take away another military benefit from those that served their country and put their lives at risk for our safety? Are medicare fees going to go up due to Obamacare, etc. etc. Then they wonder why people are so aprehensive of this program? Give us some answers to our questions!

Read it again. Your way off on just about every point. It sounds more like your research consists of reading other people's information, not reading the bill itself.

Stay off the Blaze!

Don't you just love the phrase "Affordable Healthcare"? Affordable for whom? Like you said.........we don't really know what it is all about. How many lies have they told? They are so sneaky about this whole thing and that makes me think not trust them. It's not even all about healthcare anyway. I think it is more about getting control of our very lives. When the government gets involved in anything.......things get complicated. Obama said we can keep the insurance we have if we like it and blah, blah, blah! However, he didn't tell the rest of the story. That insurance that we like so much may not be available to us. Duh! I wonder......is there anybody that has any real answers to this Obama trainwreck.........except, that I believe it is a train wreck in the making! Common sense tells me it will be expensive and somebody has to pay for this. Now, just who would that be? Hmmm!

It wasn't working in 2008, it was 2 million over budget for the year and projected to be higher in coming years. That is just one state, multiply that by 50 and adjust for inflation and rising premiums and you have an even bigger failure. http://www.cato.org/policy-report/januaryfebr...
