This whole health care reform thing has got me thinking.. I've heard a lot of people say that those who are opposed are "cold hearted" and just "don't care about those who need affordable health care". Honestly, that is simply not true. Those opposed can see the problems that HR3200 has and can see that it is only going to do more harm than good in the future. We ALL want health care reform, just NOT THIS KIND. This holds the life of millions of Americans in it's hands. Why the rush? Don't you want it done right and not stick your children and grandchildren with the bill? What is so cold hearted about that?

Jafra...some things CAN be predicted...Such as...there is NO MONEY to pay for the public option. I could go on and on....and maybe some girls will, but you aren't going to listen. Too busy being sarcastic....cuz that answered her question....
Bexi......I know what you mean. I have read pieces of the bill that I don't like. I am opposed to the public option and am looking for real reform that doesn't leave one group of people paying for many others that COULD get HC if there was REAL reform. Not cold hearted, just would like there to be a time when my grandchildren are not paying for debt that O-B-A-M-A is creating.

It's wasted breath BEXi. Many of the posters that call out the names like 'cold hearted' don't care what we have to say. They want reform, damned the consequences.
Never mind that we don't have a price tag on it.
Never mind it's never been done in a country with the population we have.
Never mind some of the elected officials that are supposed to vote on it haven't even read it - admit that they won't bother to read it - and furthermore know without reading it that it's not understandable.
Yet they are willing to plunk down that taxpayer credit card to pay for the darned thing. Like I said, damned the consequences.

If they were so interested in reform, then Obama would have voted for the TORT reform bill proposed a couple of years ago. But he didn't.
This health care reform is no more about health care than lemons are about vegetables. It is about government taking taxpayer money as an interest free loan and only returning rationed portions out to those lucky enough to make it work for them.
