Obama and Congress are being too clever. Moving forward can be much simpler.

Require every legal resident of the USA to have health insurance or a Medicaid or Medicare card.
If you buy health insurance yourself, there should be generous tax credits.
Lower to age of eligibility for Medicare to 55. Increase the Medicare tax rate to pay for this.
Eventually, broaden the remit of VA hospitals to treat all indigent patients.

Sure the gov. will help you on small things like a cold but, if you require a 10,000 dollar surgery then, bye bye! I have seen it happen to a few people and, it is a disgrace and, a huge shame!
Yes, I hate to see it to ,,,but if this takes affect every poor working stiff will have to open his back pocket to pay for all the uninsured just like over in Canada ,,,and if you talk to the people that live there they say it sucks. Just for grins some day , go sit in a waiting room at your local hospital and see how many are coming in there with no insurance now and clogging up the system.

Obama is America's First Socialist President.
I do not want this healthcare, I do not ant anymore of his bailouts... I wnat him to stop bowing at other world leaders. I want him to become a real man, a real Leader. He has not made a decision all by himself. If it wasnt for all of the Czars, the Advisors, the summitts he would never be able to decide what to do. It takes him to long... Somewhere in Kenya - a village has lost it's Idiot.

wow, Scary to see how many ignorant people there is in USA. All of you that have the answers, please explain to me why USA have the most expensive healthcare in the entire world ? How come Americans are the fattest and sickest in the world ? How come USA is the only country in the world that doesn't have social medecine ? I find it morally wrong that somebody is getting rich on sick people. Healthcare should be a SERVICE not a business..........

It's only going to get worse.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142405274...

After 'health care reform' is forced upon the taxpayers it will be Cap & Trade.
This Crap & Tax bill will cause everything you use or consume to go up dramatically in price.

"Electricity rates will necessarily skyrocket" is what Obama said & that is the one thing he hasn't lied about since being in office.

After Crap & Tax will be 'amnesty' for ILLEGAL ALIENS.

Get ready folks. The fleecing of the U.S. taxpayer is beginning in earnest.

The last thing we need is the government running health care. Right now it seems that a self imposed deadline is more important than the substance. And don't you wonder about a bill that needs to include all sorts of "perks" to get enough votes. If it is good, it is good on its own. Not with bribes for votes.

Our country was founded as a democracy, not a socialist state. Our constitution guarantees life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It does not guarantee equal wealth or freebies for all. The only way to fund such a program is to penalize those who have worked hard to improve their lives to pay for those who have not.
Not quite sure why you are "ashemed".... is that the same as ashamed? If so, maybe you could feel better about yourself and improve your self esteem by moving to another country.

most of the US population has never been to another country, don't know how the rest of the world lives, other than what they read in the gossip columns. Still none can answer why Americans are the fattest in the world ? unhealthies in the world ? and why is the US healthcare the most expensive in the wold ?
Why does for example an MRI cost $5000 ? Why are doctors allowed to charge patients different dollars for same procedure, just depending on the patient insurance?
Prices are so inflated because the insurance companies and pharmacies rule, and you rednecks think that's right ?
