Sooner the better as far as our households concerned.
Tired of all the repuplicans stalling and creating lots of nonsense ,while ordinary people suffer unncecessarily.
Waiting on treatment denided by existing insurance companies ,or worse going without medical treatment.
I have been to the Emergency room, before someone mentions the fact , know one is turned away from treatment.
Then the $3,4 or 500 dollar bill arrives for 30 mins of treatment??
Why did life get so damnned complicated!
Yeah, its all the Republicans fault! Do you expect this to be taken seriously? Watch out your employer will force you to buy a car!!
To be clear, the republicians aren't the ones holding it up. The fighting has been between the democrats! If the democrats wanted to, they could pass a bill tomorrow!
How will the current bill address that scenario?
How is this Republicans fault? The Democrats have YET to issue a finished bill because they can't agree haha
And an ER bill won't be changed with this healthcare plan.
You are misinformed about a lot of stuff but after last night's VA and NJ elections, Obama Drama is about to happen and the chances of a healthcare reform just went down.
Im thinking most of the informed people ,who have written excellant hubs on America's healthcare are busy working right now. Bless them
A congressman Yarburough(DEM) stated that the cost of healthcare will go up for everyone and they never said it would be cheaper for anyone. If thats the case and people can't afford coverage now, how will they afford it when it's more expensive?
With what we have now do you think it will stay the same?
How are people going to afford it? There aren't enough rich people, we do well but were under 200,000. Who's going to pay?
How will we pay for it if it still goes up? With no specifics all you do is throw around fear. Fear of the unknown is especially dangerous to clarity when you try to find out the truth. One truth is that healthcare has doubled in the last three years. What will that mean in the future and especially if it is left alone as we have done?
Here's another truth, If government takes over healthcare the costs will rise EVEN FASTER then before until they step in and start rationing it! Just look at MA or TN. That's the future under gov care.
Its already been explained how its going to be paid for- you just dont agree with it.
It's NOT going to be paid for! Tricks and gimmicks were used to make it appear deficit neutral. If MA is any indication, the one trillion dollar price tag will more likely be 5 or 10 trillion and lead to a bankrupt nation who China will no longer lend money to! Try to get health care then when the gov checks are bouncing and inflation is double digits!
So you thinks it's fair that I pay for my family and two or three more? Because if people like us aren't burdened with it there's no one left to pay.
My question not of how is it fair but how are we going to pay for healthcare costs that have doubled in three years now and what about it in another three years if we do nothing? Do I support the current plan. Not neccesarily but void of one what is the alternative I think the current plan will morph into the public option but how can we complain if we are offered no alternative?
An alternative has been introduced by the republicans that does not increase the deficit or raise taxes, and opens up free-market competition. But the dem congress refuses to even discuss it. I don't think it's far fetched to say that the current congress want their way or no way over this issue. That's why I don't believe this is about healthcare, but about govt control.
There has been plenty of alternatives offered by the republicans, but the democrats refused to consider them and wouldn't bring them to the floor in any of the committees. Yup, that's the bi-partisan change we can believe in!
I guess you will have to wait and change it when your party of choice gets into power. This is a representative government and if it truly represents us then it should vote as they are directed too. Sorry, maybe if and when another president of your liking and mindset gets in the healthcare can be repealed. They repealed prohibition didn't they and that was an act of congress.
That is actually the one bright spot in all of this. It can all be changed.
Well you know Obama said no federal dollars for abortion but, he didn't tell palosi that because abortion on demand is in the bill. Do you really think people who did it right should have to pay for someone else's immoral behavior. Why is their lack of personal control my problem and why do I have to pay for it? I didn't have sex with that person!
Yea but thats the only problem I have with Pres Obama not pushing the bill through sooner. All these talks ,and debates.
We just wish he would quit talking and 'do it'
A minority "we" won't get it done, sorry bout your luck!
A very democrat attitude toward changing the country whether people like it or not.
Democracy??? in America ,um think that left a few years back TK!
Why vote in a leader ,that you dont want to lead? crazy
It's Bush's fault!
Sorry. We hadn't had one of those on this forum yet, so I decided it was time to throw one in.
Of course it's about control...and money! The R's don't want to piss off the insurance companies and the D's don't want to piss off the trial lawyers (no tort reform).
BO sold us down the river when he made that secret deal with Pharma. And reducing the price of my prescriptions was what I was really hoping for in any HC legislation. Guess that ain't gonna happen!

Many arguments about what Obama is doing and not doing has brought me to this question, " What would you do differently if you were President of the U.S.? Keep in mind you came into office with a huge deficit and an on-going war, a recession and the unemployment rate is high. Homes are still...

Obama and his leftist ideology, coupled by sheer incompetence has come back to haunt/daunt him and bite him in so many places, that people are wondering if his Presidency would ever recover from the myriad scandals that has plagued his second term, from Benghazi to the IRS to the...

It appears to me that the torture issue, as Frank Rich observed in today's NY Times, is "bigger" than Obama. Rich's Op-ed provides a concise summary of where the issue currently stands. In my opinion, Obama had better get out from in front of the train! Here's a link to Frank Rich's...
