I am a Hardfast republican, but I believe that 50 years of my lifetime discussing health care reform and doing nothing is 50 years too long. PASS IT NOW

That would take another 50yrs the clean up the mess that the Obamanation would make. We do need reform but not like this. They need to kick the insurance company's in the rears not the people needing the care.

We do need a national health care system that allows everyone to receive medical care, regardless of their financial situation.
However, the proposed plan by Obama will not do that. It will require hardworking Americans that are low income to buy insurance and fine them if they don't. Chances are if they could afford insurance, they would have it.
You would still have the people that don't work receiving free healthcare. Obama's plan punishes the lower and middle class.

Those that can't afford it will have help in obtaining coverage.

The people that have free care will continue...this isn't about the lazy it is about the working person.

I have many subs that work for me that choose not to carry health care because they prefer a new car. I can assure you, they can afford it.
Paying for these people is costing the taxpayer.

As a small business owner I realize the importance of a health care package.

I agree there are some that can afford it that simply prefer to spend their money on other things. However, there are people that work very hard for moderate income and it takes every dime they make to feed their kids and keep the lights on. Throwing a little money at them and expecting them to pay twice that amount for insurance isn't the answer.
I make a decent living and have health insurance. However, I've seen many people that are struggling, don't have health insurance and can barely afford to feed their families. They are not on welfare and don't live beyond their means. I want those people to have the ability to go to the doctor and not worry about being short for rent or groceries.
Our government just sent billions to help the people of Haiti. Why wouldn't we spend the same amount on our citizens???

jace, we send billions to other countries where their situation was already hopeless no matter how much money they get and earthquake or not. We do this and are the most generous nation on earth and are always there so that all those people can later say how Americans are devils and war mongers. To those who are slow, I'm being sarcastic, but it's how it usually goes. And don't forget, we have to stay POPULAR around the world. We want the Euros to love us, don't you know? goo goo huggy huggy.

A question many of us ask....along with why do lazy people get handouts and why do we allow massive illegal immigration?

I wish I knew?
