the plan that is proposed would help to alleviate some of the money pressures that arise when someone is sick long term....it may be far from perfect but its better then what a lot of your fellow citizens have now.
Well, if the government is running it, then we can guarantee that it will be worse. You forget that I'm someone who lived with government run healthcare for over ten years while I was in the Army. The government can't even run the Post Office properly, how in the world are we supposed to trust them to make decisions that may determine whether we live or die?
This plan is completely misguided and essentially just a giant bailout for the insurance companies. It's going to do very little to help the average American citizen. In fact, people are going to be fined and maybe even put in jail for NOT having health insurance under this plan.
How is that helping matters, other than forcing people to feed more money into the corrupt insurance system (on top of the increased taxes that this plan will require)?
I'm not even going to touch on the taxpayer funded abortions, I'm already pissed off enough here.
