  • It has to be more taxes-there is no other way. What is funny is when they start to increase taxes people are going to get upset. People hear "healthcare for all" and I swear they have sparkles in their eyes like a fairytale or something!!

    This isn't appropriate for our country right now. This isn't the way to fix healthcare. I feel like it is a giant bandaid to try to make people happy, but once it starts, I think people are going to have a serious wakeup call.

  • Julians...

    1. A MASSIVE increase in taxes!!
    2. Half the country doesn't seem to care! I know I don't want it!!!
    3. Half the country seems to think the government actually cares about them!

  • Democrats in Congress and Obama have lied about the number of Americans who are uninsured.
    Democrats in Congress and Obama are forcing their agenda on Americans EVEN though most research SHOWS that even if Obama taxes those making over $75,000/yr~it STILL WOULD NOT be enough.

    And all many BO supporters can say is , "he won, get over it"

  • When the economy collapses they will all be asking "what happened?" but then it will be Bush's fault of course. Many economists predict this will be our economic collapse.

  • The talk on Capitol Hill now is that the bill will mandate that everyone that does not have insurance MUST purchase it. If they don't, they'll be fined. Of course, the gov't will "subsidize" for those making under $88K....subsidies that are a FRACTION of what it costs to purchase good insurance. I can't wait to hear the complaining if that happens.

    ***
    Unfortunately the people who voted for Obama and want this health care plan are going to drag the rest of us who HAVE our own private health plans are are perfectly happy with them, down with them!

    I WISH only those who wanted this plan got stuck with it....without my taxes going up, of course. But sadly, it's a "one size fits all" approach.
