Most citizens in our nation may not realize how costly and difficult quality healthcare has become in our nation. Most of us are covered through our employers and are insulated by the costs. however, the cost to insure a single familt is projected to reach over $2400 per month within 10 years. This is a burden that the ever increasing number of unemployed families and small business owners cannot bear. We must be able to provide care for ALL our fellow citizens and business owners at a cost and manner they can bear.

First of all, it's not about "health" or "care". It's about government control and redistribution of income. All the demonizing of insurance companies is a smokescreen for the fact that requiring everyone to have insurance is a mega windfall for insurance companies.

Medical insurance would be a heck of a lot cheaper if we didn't insist on using it for every cough and scratch. If Americans used car insurance the way they expect to use medical insurance, no one would be able to afford that either. Or homeowners insurance... you wouldn't put in a claim for a burned out light bulb, but you'll run to the doctor for every little thing because you don't pay for it. Someone else does though.

It's not my responsibility to cover the cost of your medical care anymore than it's your job to cover the cost of my house repairs.

My actual medical costs are less than the cost of the insurance. If I were forced to buy insurance, it would increase my expenditures by over $10K a year.

My family's medical insurance is: Eat healthy and don't take physical risks you can't pay for yourself. Example: if you can't afford to pay for a broken leg... don't go skate boarding or skiing.

Stop expecting everyone else to pick up your tab.
