My health care shouldn't be control by the government. This is a free country and so is my health.

If anything can be screwed up, our government can do it. And it is the best money can buy.

This proposal will add to our national debt and will increase everyone's insurance premium costs. Doesn't anyone in Congress understand basic economics?

They understand it all too well.

Somebody is getting a payback from all of this or all of their energies would not be combined to have it passed at any cost(s).

It has worked in other countries, such as Argentina. Health care needs reform!

Now there is a comparison. How about the UK?

Compilation of videos in which Obama LIES EIGHT TIMES about broadcasting the health care debate on CSPAN. People, be intellectually honest here: WHAT would be the harm of letting a camera roll during these procedings? What are they trying to hide from you? No rational person regardless of party or left vs right leanings should accept the way this administration operates

This administration (and Congress) is both inept and corrupt. An election only decides which group of thieves seize power. There is little that the average citizen can do as the system is closed.

A Citizen PAC would have to be formed to actually buy what the citizenry needs and want. Big business has full control of it now.

Hey homie! He ain't no liar. He is a good christian muslim god and prophet and we all need to go to the whitehouse to worship him and praise him so we can enter the kingdom of him. By Dec. 21 of 2012, we will be in Obama's personal Heaven. That is the good news gospel of Obama. We need to read Obama's christian Bible. That is the true Word of God which is the Obama God!

As a Health broker we know how these changes will increase to cost of all Americans during the next ten years. How you can think that bringing in 47 million uninsured all at one time will not have a negative effect on the rest of us. The reason their are so many as they are to poor and to overweight an to lazy to go out and get a job to join an employers plan. Guess who will be paying for the uninsured who can't afford insurance?

Stop all the negative thinking, it's not productive. Insurance companys are trading patient value(can't be dropped for pre-conditions), and (no life time caps) for more revenue. Forty seven million more people paying premiums will help. even if they can't all pay, they'll end up paying something. Better then nothing (what you have now). It's working with car insurance, it should work for medical insurance. You're only worried about your job. Who needs a salesman when you must buy insurance.

The false promise is it will lower everyone's costs.
When you hand out tax payer subsidized insurance cards to the 47 million un insured and they I turn make a run on doctors offices to get gastric bypass surgery and the like. How will all those claims lower our costs?

what expriance do you have than my 20 years in this industry. Someone who gets all their news from one source would know better. As for my job, 15 years ago I lobbied for health reform for those who lost their jobs or had aids and no one would pick them up. We won at the state level and in Maryland we proved with the help of agents like me , that reform was possiable. You have no idea of the sunami of people who will rush to get help when the government will give out paid for vouchers paid by the working class for free of low cost insurance the same exact kind that a family of four with a middle class income is paying $2,200 a month for now! What we should have done was form a bridge policy for the poor to help them cover many costs like RX and limited office visits and limited hospital stays for the first $25,000 until medicaid would kick in. The cost for such a plan now runs anywhere from $59 to $124 per month. So each one of us will have to make up the additional $150 per person per month so that you can feel good that your helping someone who can't help themselves. Does this sound fair to you? Get back to is with some facts after watching Glee.

43% of the 47 million uninsured can afford it according to the IRS. They choose not to pay. That money would go into a pool for those things we can't afford as indivduals. 30% of the remaining uninsured can afford something, and choose not to pay. There is no reason to believe 47 million people will run to the government for free vouchers. Besides the government won't give them that privilege. you need to stop all your negative fed-back it's not productive. For you to assume I have no experience in common business sense is absurd. I was an entreprenuer for 40 years and retired successful. One doesn't do that without great common sense and economic experience.

The false speculation you provide is no better then the loser GOP race. For you to assume tax payer money will be handed out is absurd. The whole purpose of the mandate is to make free loaders pay. Remember free loaders are not just poor people. It's people who choose not to buy insurance expecting to not get sick, or use the system. 43% of the 47 million can afford health insurance and will be forced to pay. 30% will need some help, yet not 100%. Only a small percentage will get away with 100% tax paid insurance. Another the words all that new money from their paycheck in the form of premiums and/ or fees will pool together, and help pay for those things one can't afford as an indivdual.
