Tell Us What You Really Think!

Cast your vote on Obamacare!

The purpose of this lens is to allow you an opportunity to participate in a non-partisan poll about Obama's Health Care Plan for America. I want to get your opinions, not give mine. I would even like to hear from friends from other countries who already have government health care.

Your experiences could help decide America's future.



Information

These are only a few of the issues addressed in the extensive Health Care Proposal.

The site used to obtain information for this poll definitely has a bias which I do not necessarily embrace. I wanted to give you enough information to know that there are very real issues being proposed and included in the Health Care Plan and I needed a source that had it spelled out in layman's terms.

I tried to remove any reflection of opinion. Again. let me state: I do not want this lens to reflect my opinion.

Before You Go Further, Please Tell Us What You Think Now

Please do not change this vote later. I want to see if anything in this lens changes your mind. Thanks

      The fear of the unknown is what has me concerned. I know what my insurance plan looks like now and what services I get. I know what I pay for those services, and am happy with my plan. Who knows what coverage and services will look like in the future?

      When Obamacare was coming into existence, I started changing my lifestyle. At 76 I could see where there wasn't going to be a lot of money left over for my care. I got a lap-band operation. Had a gall-bladder removed. Lost 85 lbs. Exercise 6 days a week. Net effect: blood pressure 115/60, sleep apnea gone, pressure on knees reduced, cholesterol under control, and feeling great. I'm in total charge of my health.

      It's surprising that so many people feel the way they do.

      When the entire socialist system comes crashing down in flames, which is inevitable because a system based on theft and dishonesty is unsustainable, I'll try not to laugh too much.
