  • I read it over the weekend, which means I need to read it again. It was missing pieces, and is still being written.

  • I have read it. They will make many more changes to make sure we all are in a state of confusion so when this passes we won't know what hits us. I find it amusing this is so urgent but it will be a good 2-3 years before this is even implemented. Seems if they really wanted to fix things this would be implemented right away. So to me this is about getting this passed while the Congress is Democrat ran. The people will forget about it like they do almost everything. Then get Obama reelected then let the people see the real damage this thing will do to our country. I will continue to read updates and stay informed. Since we no longer have journalists that report facts it is really tough to know what is real and not real anymore. I feel for my son if this passes.

  • I've read through large parts of it. My main complaint is it's too all-encompassing. If it was ONLY about providing health care to the uninsured/under-insured, I'd support it. Instead, it forms committees to oversee hundreds of things that have nothing to do with the uninsured. It forms grants, education programs, oversight committees, and other things that need to be funded year after year, whether they are effective or not.  A simple system that only paid for health care, with REAL choices, would be best.  No need to tear down and muck up health care with rules and regulations.

  • All I can say is WHY does Obama need such an all encompasing health care bill to CUT COSTS?! If he wants to cut Medicare and social program costs...just do it already, deal with the fall out and leave the rest of us alone!

    Or why not take care of the 10 MILLION who TRULY do not have health insurance (not the 37 million who simply haven't enrolled because they don't need it or didn't know they were eligible!) instead of blowing up a system that 77% of Americans who have health insurance are satisfied with?!?!?

    Answer: Because it's all just a big ol' power grab!

  • I would need a lawyer to help me sift through the B.S. and I can't afford one right now, so it'll have to wait. When I can afford one, I'll divide it amongst my family to help me read it.
