Honestly, I don't agree with much of anything this man says. This plan is dangerous to Americans and should be opposed at all costs.

Whats wrong with a little competion for the insurance companies? At least the people will have a bettr chance of having insurance than they do now. Millions are now priced out of the insurance market by hight cost, dumping of those by insurance companies who have already paid for their policies, or not elgible for insurance because of previous illness or injuries. So ,so much for insurance companies. If you have a pre-existing condition=no need to apply.

In Texas, insurance companies can't handle competition.

There is simply no way we can afford this. Health care is not a right.

WOW you must be a lonesome Republican. Yes, there are those that are trying to work things out. I just don't think most people understand the scope of everything. Like we don't understand anything, until we are experience it, personally go thru it.

Is there no 'right' to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness'? Since it is not a right give me your address and I'll be sure NOT to respond to your 911 call.

health care is unafordable for some people. If ins. co. can afford to pay out over 270 million for lobbying and ads against health care ins. they can afford to make ins. policies affordable.

How dam dumb are people any way. they deny people health care, drop them from their plan that a policy holder has been paying for, deny coverage to the sick. Deny policy holders their prescriptions when applying for them at the pharmacy. This act of denial happens every day to people who is suppose to have coverage and is denied that coverage and the person doing the denying is getting a big fat bonus while you are bumped off you paid up policy. Maybe you folks out there that wants to deny the others health care will eventually lose your job, and your health insurance, and your prescription meds and ber in need in the future. And I hope you are remembering thie day you lost your insurance coverage.

As long as the insurance companies are in place to dictate what sort of care the people can get, the people will always suffer. Sure, creating competition might help, but the basis of the failing healthcare system in America is a fundamental one, tha the was given long ago to those who regular the costs for their own benefit. It's a real shame.

I support the plan. I just got back from a trip to UK, Paris, and Amsterdam. Went with a bunch of Canadiens. When I polled everyone about thier health care and what they thought of it, I heard none of the horror stories fox news tries to scare people with. The one thing I heard from everyone...."we would rather have what we have than have to deal with your system". Im convinced the drones in this country are not the obama follows but rather the Glenn Beck/Rush limbaugh followers. These people will believe anything. Im white but still see a lot of racism fueling this debate

I personally know of a person who was deniedhis medications by an insurance company. Just thing if a denial last for only a month or 2 what an insurance company will make in profits from all of the combined denials and the dropping of their policiy holders. A lot of millions in nice chean profits and those making those denials get another fat bonus in their paychecks. Do the insurance companies and their employees even have a heart or conscience, I believe not on a dollar sign for profits. Thats the reason your insurance policy cost an extra 1000 $$$$ or more per year is to pay for those emergency visits that Bush highly recommended for those without insurance, go to your friendly emergency room to get that medica;l care. You and I the policy holders pay for that care also. Bush's recommedations was a was choice for a country with 40 to 50 million people without insurance and about 14 thousand per week loosing their health insurance. Are you one of those people?

Buying healthcare is like buying an airplane ticket. You may pay 1400 for a visit when the guy in the waiting room next to you might be paying 400. Healthcare is a joke and anything that will expose the inside practices is welcomed.

Healthcare is like buying an airplane ticket. You might have bought a procedure for 1400 dollars and the guy next to you in the waiting room might be paying 400. Anything that can expose the crooked healthcare industry is welcomed. By the way do everything you can to avoid a flight with CareFlight. What should cost 2500 to 3000 plus 25 to 30 bucks a mile turns into 3 times that much. What a ripoff and if you say anything bad about them it's like talking bad about jesus. They are not saints and the not for profit is bunk.

A cowboy from Texas attends a social function where Barack Obama is trying to gather

support for his Health Plan. Once he discovers the cowboy is from President Bush’s

home area, he starts to belittle him by talking in a southern drawl and single

syllable words.As he was doing that, he kept swatting at some flies that were

buzzing around his head. The cowboy says, "Y'all havin' some problem with them circle

flies?" Obama stopped talking and said, "Well, yes, if that's what they're called,

but I've never heard of circle flies.""Well, sir," the cowboy replies, "Circle flies

hang around ranches. They're called circle flies because they're almost always found

circling around the back end of a horse." "Oh," Obama replies as he goes back to

rambling. But, a moment later he stops and bluntly asks, "Are you calling me a horse's

ass?""No, sir," the cowboy replies, "I have too much respect for the citizens of this

country to call their president a horse's ass."

"That's a good thing," Obama responds and begins rambling on once more.

After a long pause, the cowboy, in his best Texas drawl says, "Hard to fool them

flies, though.
