I really don't want this to happen. We have excellent insurance and I know that if this does happen, we will lose it and have what everyone else has!
In 2006 my husband at the age of 32 had to have heart surgery. We were able to go to Cleveland Clinic and have the #1 surgeon -- the surgeon who pioneered invasive mitral valve repair -- Delos Cosgrove perform his surgery.
If we didn't have such wonderful insurance we would have had to go to a hospital around us, which in Upstate, NY, are very small hospitals and would not have had the expertise as Cleveland Clinic does. And that scares me!
So, yes, I'm against it unless we're able to keep the insurance we have now!

Lots of people choose not to have health care even if it is available. I want my own health care that I choose and Canada has crappy health care, why do you think the people that can afford it come here to be treated. We already have Medicaid and Medicare, look how well then govt manages those programs. I'm tired of the govt trying to make decisions for me, remember a govt big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take it away. I'm not against the govt offereing a plan for people without insurance, but don't take my choices away from me.
