Health Care Insurance and pharmaceutical companies are out of control and this is a way for some healthy competition.

How do we increase competition when one of the companies, the federal government in this case, is allowed to make all the rules? We should have learned in grade school that the kid with the only ball and bat, the one allowed to make the rules as we go, always wins. There is no competition. Regulation of the insurance industry would be a good idea, but regulation of the hospitals and health care providers would be better. We don't need to regulate our population. The health care industry is at fault, not the citizen. Why punish the citizen with grossly increased taxation and fines when we can easily cause the health care and insurance industry to be more honest and forth right. And don't forget torte reform. Get rid of the over-sized judgments, and health care costs can decrease.

The government is the worst solution to a cost effective anything, especially health care. We have never been a socialist nation and the future of our country is at risk, not just with healthcare but everything Obama is about.

The government could not get water to Katrina victims! Wal-Mart did, maybe Wal-Mart should run the health program! Wake up America. I do not want some wealthy senator deciding my future concerning health. They will continue to receive a top rated health care program. So if we could get the same, go for it! Not going to happen sports fans!!!!! Working people will pay out the ass for this death trip.

I oppose Government healthcare. I do not believe that we have a health insurance crisis. Everyone can get medical treatment when it's needed. I frankly don't trust anyone in Government today to have my healthcare options under their control. They need to protect our borders and leave the rest to the citizens. We now live in a country of leeches that are 2nd and 3rd generation welfare families, and it sickens me to see the laziness of our citizens, and the corruptions in our leaders.

It's best to do something then nothing, even though i don't agree with all of his heath care course of action it's best to put a foot forward. This is America and we as a people can do better then this. The other administration had 8 years to do something about heath care. I guess you can say they did do something about heath care. Take a look around, your answer is looking you in your face.

The government is overstepping their bounds. It's time for the people to take control back.

Here is what the people of South Carolina need to do before and after healthcare passes through Congress and is signed into law. You need to contact the state authorites in Columbia and tell them to invoke Nullification as granted to us by the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Here is what the 10th Amendment says about Nullification. Whenever a state nullifies a federal law, it is proclaiming that the law in question is void and inoperative or non-effective, within the boundaries of that state, not a law as far as that state is concerned. The 10th Amendment Movement is an effort to push back against unconstitutional federal laws and regulations on a state level. The principle is known as Nullification and was advised by many prominent founders. The state of Arizona and several others have stated they will invoke Nullification in their respective states if this healthcare bill in passed in Congress. Have a good day.

I think we need to take a real look at the ones who really stand to benefit $. It's not the AMERICAN people! This is not a good health care proposal.

Private insurance companies would have to lower the cost of their policies to compete with public insurance providers.

Hey Conservatives, nobody takes me in unless they have a value added plan that works. What have the Republicans done in the last twenty years that worked. Cut spending, cut taxes, cut regulations, and let the free market flow. Sure, and I got some land on the moon. Just because I can admit free markets can be unforgiving, doesn't make me some liberal pushing socialist. Don't you know the difference? Obama took office with 7.8% unemployment and rising. Obama took office after Republicans started a new war without raising taxes. They decided to pay for it by easing credit and propped up spending. Then they had a problem. The war lasted longer then expected, and the fed's didn't raise taxes. Bingo,a "BUST". Republicans with good intentions tried to boost the economy through housing, Democrats helped, however Republicans forgot something. Regulation on banks. OPP's, BINGO ,BUST. Now who comes along? Obama. Its been two years trying to fix 20 years, give someone a break. You're in the back sit whining "are we there yet", " are we there yet". Of course noy "FOOL".
