Anyone actually glad that the healthcare reform passed this morning?

I was just wondering. I see a lot of negativity, but I would like to see the other side as well.

  • No! They couldn't even tell us what was "in it" until we "passed it" (as Pelosi said)

  • Not really. Only in the sense that Obama has finally gotten something accomplished...I just wish this wasn't it.

  • Nobody who knows what they're talking about. Plenty of people lying about it, like the morons telling people with pre-existing conditions they'll get insurance this year.

  • Yes, I am glad. It may not be perfect but nothing is. There really needed to be a change.I'm looking forward to see what happens with it within the next couple of years. Finally someone not afraid of change, I think its great.

  • yes. I've been a nurse for 30 years and we absolutely need to change the system. I also care for my parents and Medicare is waaaaaayyyyyy out of whack. This bill is going to be the beginning of turning the system around to work for us instead of US (taxpayers) working for it. My mom needs to do "homework" to verify FOR MEDICARE that her doctors appointments and tests, etc actually happened. And her medications are so expensive, that she wouldn't be able to afford them if I wasn't helping her out. My dad gets his meds through the VA, but they don't cover everything and he needs to private pay about $200/ month for his too.
