why not have another option?, Hey I know it's the Government, but what other choices do we have. If it continues down this road the only way you'll be able to afford a plan is if you work for the state or federal gov. wake up america, do you track your current plan. my God these companies are ripping us off big time. I can't count how many mistakes my insurance has made. I'm not saying the gov will be any better. but 250 bucks for an IV bag of potassium Chloride...come on...something has to change.

We feel it is best for everyone to have health care, not just the wealthy or better off. I know too many people who have no medical care even though they have health insurance because to cost of the insurance plus the cost of the co-pay makes it impossible to go to the doctor.

Without healthcare reform I will lose my health insurance again and go deeper into debt. This system we have now is killing people.

There are many people legitimately suffering from the system we have now. Even if you can possibly afford the monthly premiums, the high deductibles and co-pays make it virtually impossible to get care. I personally pay $790 per month for my wife and me with a $6,000 deductible. That means I have to pay the first $15,500 before I can get any help. That is 83% of my income. How crazy is that?

How can anyone in good conscience not support the Obama health plan? Millions of Americans have no health coverage, and more than 30,000 of these live here in SD. The U.S. pays more for health care than any developed nation, but we have one of the worst infant mortality rates and one of the worst mortality rates. If we are to prosper as a nation, something must be done now.
