What do you hope to come from next week's health care vote?

"Americans have legitimate concerns about the cost of the new health care law and its effect on the ability to grow jobs in our country. It is our expectation that the debate will continue to focus on those substantive policy differences surrounding the new law.”~Eric Cantor.

~~~~

Gallup poll finds that 46% of Americans want their representative in Congress to vote to repeal the healthcare law, 40% want their representative to vote to let the law stand, and 14% have no opinion.

  • Repeal and start over with a sensable bill that will help people and not penalize others.

  • I would like to see a repeal and a REAL Debate with slow methodical steps to reform. (Tort Reform, Pre-existing conditions, etc)..  We DO NOT need the IRS involved.  If over 200+ waivers have been issued and MORE are on the horizon, that is a strong statement AGAINST the current bill, IMO.

  • It will all just be symbolic anyway. It's really just a waste of time, while there are more pressing things on, like lowering the jobless rate.

    Some companies are weary of hiring because of the costly changes Health Care bill imposes on companies. So, in a way, the Health Care bill COULD help job outlook... Government intervention is NOT good for economic growth.

  • Me personally.

    Though the cost will be great. I would like to see it reformed.

    I am not against Universal Healthcare.. I am against Universal Insurance. The Healthcare bill that was passed, was not healthcare reform in any sense of the term. It turned into nothing but a huge gimme, and subsidy program for the multi Billion dollar a year insurance industry. Penalizing the American people for not having healthcare is not reform, making a deal with the insurance lobby that pretty much breaks down to "you get rid of pre-existing conditions quidelines, cover all children who apply, and we will FORCE the American people to BUY insurance"... It's crap, pure crap.

    An actual debate and possible legislation that actually helps people instead of the insurance industry is what I'm interested in. Helping people receive BASIC (anyone who wants more coverage can buy it) healthcare is of interest to me, not forcing people to insurance

  • Repeal it. It's not in the best interests of the country,and needs to be re-done.

  • This country doesn't need more hair-brained bureaucracies created.


    They only lead to a bigger mess and to more government employees to be unionized and to vote in Libs.
