Are you willing to pay?

White House senior adviser David Axelrod said the president won't rule out a health care reform bill that includes a middle-class tax hike.

"The president had said in the past that he doesn't believe taxing health care benefits at any level is necessarily the best way to go here. He still believes that," Axelrod told me on This Week, "But there are a number of formulations and we'll wait and see. The important thing at this point is to keep the process moving, to keep people at the table, to the keep the discussions going. We've gotten a long way down the road and we want to finish that journey."

Are you willing to "pay" ?

  • I think we need AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE FOR ALL. Not government run health care.

  • Yes, we need health care reform and I'm willing to pay. We have a real health care crisis on our hands over 50 millions people do not have health care insurance. Many people have to decide between food or medication. We need health care that isaffordable, easily accessible, and without compromise to quality.

    We need to put a cap on malpractice. We need to allow doctors to do their jobs, without fear of getting sued causing doctors to practice defensive medicine, such as ordering unnecessary tests.
    We need to cut medical costs, that everyone can have insurance. No one should lose their retirement savings due to health care expenses. No insurance company should be allowed to deny you coverage.
    We need to find ways to cut medical costs. lts crazy that one tylenol costs $7.00 in the hospital!

  • Health care reform does NOT mean univeral health care. Our health care system is broken and it needs to be fixed.

  • Since we already pay for our own insurance I don't see why I should have to pay more. We are not a burden and contribute more out of our income to taxes than many. I have 10 children to pay for and raise maybe Obama and Congress should forfeit their own pay and compensation packages then maybe I would be willing to give more.

  • The Canadians don't want us to go towards a National Health Care system. They come to the US for their health care needs. If we have NHC, they have no where to go. They have NHC and it is horrible. We need to learn from the mistakes of others.
