    My opinion is that we are seeing the most corruot government in my life time!!!!I do not want any part of the health care plan as I think it will be a debacle. The fact that it is being done in secret should tell even the dumbest among us that something is not right.

    Rick, you know I had to do the survey. But the questions were so absolute and the issue is so gray. As you well know, I am extremely concerned about the Federal debt. But the biggest problem with the debt is growing healthcare costs and as, via Medicare/Medicaid, the government is the largest consumer of healthcare, lowering costs over time starting NOW is essential. If we don’t (and don’t make some minor changes to Social Security) by 2023 100% of our revenue will be spent on Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and interest on the debt. Healthcare reform is necessary and everything should be on the table.

    I wonder how this bill will be funded. My husband and I enjoy a worry-free health care program due to work related retirement benefits. I would like this to continue but might have to pay some for less fortunate. As I said on the survey: Congress needs to “walk a mile in average Americans’ shoes” and experience the same quality and cost of health care in the U.S. Of course, we all know by now that this won’t happen. But, it would sure make a difference in the future bill.

    health care reform is a misnomer. very little is being reformed and much is at stake. while i think health care is a right for each person it is the responsibility of each person to care for themselves in such a way as to have as little an impact as possible on health care. but this is a pipe dream as personal entitlement is at an all time high. the “gimme gimme’s” far out way the funding. while our representatives on capitol hill scream about the absurd profits in health care they seem to think it perfectly reasonable for a lawyer to make 250-750 dollars an hour, win or lose. capitol hill wants to lower incomes in health care a raise liability, what sane person would go into healthcare under those circumstances. one more thing that is not being addressed is the shortage and further projected shortage of healthcare providers. we can talk all we want about reform but without heathcare providers all this is moot.

    This bill is not in any way about healthcare or insuring people. It is about controlling and taxing the populace. It’s irrelevant if there is a public option or not in this bill because the end objective is to force the insurance companies to raise premiums so much (through mandated coverages) that most can’t afford them so then the government can save the day with nationalized healthcare. Once the government is paying a person’s bills then the government can dictate that that person’s behavior not raise the amount of said bills. The government will tell us what activities we can engage in and what we can eat & drink.

    No one can be refused medical care in the system we have now. Any bill that is truly a healthcare bill has to include tort reform and enable competition across state lines and this one does neither.

    A government system would have to set priorities and thus ration healthcare. Ever notice how many people show up when businesses give away free stuff?

    It’s heartening that a majority in this country seem to realize that this bill would be a disaster. But it’s not heartening that elected Democrats won’t listen to them.

    This bill isn’t about health care reform but another entitlement program. As if health care is a rightset forth in our Constitution? It is about the expansion of government to control more. If they were serious about health care there would be real debate not deals cut behind closed doors with no transparency. There would be talk of portability and tort reform, but none of these issues are addressed, thanks to the untold number of lawyers that sit in Congress and the senate It makes me realize that the things that my father fought for in WWII Are a thing of the past as our rights and freedoms erode. Being destroyed by, not only the Democrats but also Republicans. It leads us to the look at a global economy and a new world order in a different light.

    How can one even comment on healthcare reform when then isn’t one drop of reform in this series of bills? And yes, I read two of the versions, it was unintelligible clap trap plus some very dangerous government intrusion. We have the best medical care in the world that is fully accessible to everyone, the only exception would be for the very few who might have difficulty obtaining adequate transportation (which is a different problem). Again and again the elected majority lies, lies and lies. There can be no prosperity, reform or progress in any society or country when the process is totally corrupt. That is where we are – we are currently living under a dictatorship at the top tier of the federal government, period. The majority have the votes to do whatever they want for whatever personal gains they want. So what is the point of talking healthcare reform or anything else when it is obvious that those in power are not interested in the will of the electorate?
