Obama's Health Care Plan ~ A Poll
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.
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
