I guess those people should get a job and pay for their healthcare.

Everyone has prioriteis with their money. People choose not to have healthcare it is not kept from them. It i snot hard to get a policy from an underwriter that is not much more expenisive then a work plan. Many even have pay plans to cover only what you tthink you will need. SO there is no real excuse. The lack of healthcare is as big of a myth as global warming. I live below the poverty line and I still have insurance because I know I need it and sacrafice somewhere lese to pay for it.

Exactly, I could probably afford it, but I don't want it so I don't buy it.

Yes, lack of access, because not everyone can afford it, but forcing everyone to buy insurance policies with high co-pays would make access to healthcare even worse. Suddenly the money that people might have been able to save up for themselves, goes into an insurance company who requires even more money if the policy holder actually gets sick. Or the insurance company could just come up with any reason whatsoever to drop coverage on the person.

For instance, if I can only afford a cheap health insurance plan and I need to go in for heart surgery (I have a history of heart disease on both sides of my family, so this is more than a hypothetical here), the insurance company will still require me to pay $2500 or more for the co-pay before they do ANYTHING. So, now I've been spending $100 a month for an insurance policy that is completely useless to me when I need it.

The problem here is the insurance companies, not the healthcare system itself. And Obama's healthcare plan will just make everything worse. It's more of a health insurance company bailout than a true healthcare plan for the US.

Fortunately, the current bill looks to be dead in the water, even Obama and Nancy Pelosi are forced to admit it. So my only question is, where do I sign up to go dance on the grave?

Yeah and notice who performed the studies for your poster. Harvard Medical School and Cambridge Health Alliance. 2 places associated with the most liberal thinking schools in the country!
