  • I am aware of the changes read most of the bill unlike the people who voted for it. There are a few good things the rest is crap. I am a moderate.

  • Yes, I've read it, I"m still against it, not because I don't like Obama, because it's just not what this country needs. I'm a Conservative.

  • I have looked it over. The three good things I like are that you can get it with pre existing conditions. The insurance companies are going to have to use 85% of your premium on actual health care. They can't kick you off of insurance because you get sick. The bad things are that most of it doesn't kick in until 2014. It's confusing and most people don't understand it, and they didn't go with the public option, I'm a liberal.

  • Pre-existing conditions, keeping children on til 25 years old (for me that's wonderful so my son can attend college and work his tutoring jobs without being stressed over medical coverage). I don't believe any of the rest will affect me, I have great insurance with my long term job. I am moderate.

  • I HATE JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING IN THE BILL such as the taxes on small businesses, the mandate to buy health insurance and the fees. I HATE Obama trying to control Americans. I hate that my husband was told 2 weeks ago that due to the health care bill our out of pocket is doubling!!!

    I do like the provisions for breastfeeding mothers.

  • I've read it, I don't think it actually goes far enough - I was hoping for universal or single payer health care but that unfortunately was not to be. Interestingly, what Obama put into effect was what the Republicans offered up during Hilary Clinton's attempt at healthcare reform. So all the hullaballo this past year was plain old silly. I'm a bleeding heart liberal.

  • It'll lead to rationing and would increase big government. America would continue on the slippery slope toward socialism.


    I'm a proud Conservative.
