im not gonna lie say i no everything about this i just dont see how its bad u are forced to pay for health care but if something serious happens to one of u guys u will be happy u were forced to have it.
If you need care though, why shouldn't you be able to have it? Because of an insurance company who makes literal tons of money?

"Oh you didn't pay insurance, sorry, you'll be dying in 2 months."

Here me out on this...I've had heathcare in the past, was laid off and then had cobra, now i have no insurance. During each of those points in my life i had go to the hospital. It was the same hospital each time.
-Coverage (about $100/month): i went in for what turned out to be walking pneumonia. I was treated like gold.
-Cobra (about $600/month): Stomach issue, was given decent treatment. Given some meds and fluid then sent home. NOTICE no testing was done. No diagnosis.
-No Coverage (free but at the cost of important parts in my life, spent my first wedding room in a ER waiting room): Same stomach issue. Couldn't make the cobra payments anymore and coverage was even more expensive. Waited for 4 hours in the waiting room in severe pain, hadn't eaten or drank anything in 3 days, blurry vision, etc. Was finally put into a bed in the fu*king hallway of the ER. Was given catscans, mris, x-rays, etc. Was sent home with NO diagnosis again.
After months of changing my diet and many many different doctors. It came down to a partial blockage in my lower intestines, lactose intolerant, and IBS. I am now left with a hospital bill that has basically paralyzed my life. I tried to get help from the hospital, they agreed to pay 20% of the bill. Which when you look at the inflated costs doesn't matter to them. They now stand to make more money off of me, seemingly a self-paying CUSTOMER, then they would have made from discounted prices when I was on Cobra coverage.

Some of you might not see the connection I'm making between this and Obama care. The way people are treated in hospitals is unfair. Just because someone has health coverage doesn't mean that they should be treated any better then anyone else. If you are fortunate enough to have health coverage then you should be proud and grateful because some of us aren't able to afford or be offered that luxury. Anyway, I could go on about all of my thoughts about what I think should be done to health care reform. Basically, I am hoping that Obama care will stop, or at least control, the way PATIENTS are treated in hospitals. Because we should all walk in as PATIENTS not PATRONS.




I see nobody touched this. Thanks for sharing and good luck

To put it plain and simple---
America is already in more debt than we can ever repay. To give health insurance to all intensifies this problem. To further that, insurance was never guaranteed in the Bill of Rights, the Constitution, nowhere is there a statement saying we all have the right to have free insurance. We have the right to buy it, but, since insurance companies are private, they should have the right to deny anyone. Just like you can deny service to people at a gas station (no shoes, no shirt, no service). Stating everyone desrerves health insurance is pure stupidity. And regarding the a la Canada statement, Canada is one of the worst when it comes to healthcare. That's why people fly to the US for good treatment. We have good treatments because of the privitization of healthcare. You make it public, you take away the profits, people have no incentive to better treatments because the money and profit is taken out. Much like communism, free healthcare does not work. That's why Canada is working to start making privitize healthcare. They are realizing their way isn't working. People have to wait for extensive periods of time for necessary treatments, sometimes so long they end up dying durin the wait. If Obamacare makes it, be prepared for another downfall. This is just another way for Obama to "spread the wealth". Someone name me one communist country that is actually working. You can't!! None have. Lord help us all if this crap makes it through.

The level of stupidity on here is amazing....health care isn't nationalize like Canada, Taiwan or European nations that have it....basically if you already health insurance then nothing really will change for you except there's no annual caps on your insurance, you children can be on insurance til they are 26, can't get dropped for having a pre existing condition, limits the amount of mal practice lawsuits on doctors

Which everyone seems to like those points and other things about it...it's just the mandate law....basically breaks down like this: if you cannot afford health insurance basic coverage then you get a voucher which subsidize 60%-95% depending on what you can afford and if you can afford health insurance but your job doesn't provide you can go to the health insurance exchange which is being establish and pick the best health insurance for you(kinda like going to the store and picking fruit, you can choose what you want)

How the taxing goes? It just gets deducted from your income tax each year if you don't have it...if you do have it then you just check the box...that's it...simple

I think the misconceptions of Heath insurance is scaring/angering/upsetting people which by nature are afraid of change on large scales which this is....it doesn't slow down your doctor effectiveness, doesn't make you wait months or years for surgery, doesn't have the IRS knock down your door to arrest you, people are over exaggerating it.....is this the best thing ever? Nope but it's definitely positive reform for our health care

Really, do you know anyone personally?? Because Im Canadian and I no NOBODY who would even think of such a thing… you are just going off some BS news reports and are CLUELESS. No one has EVER died waiting for treatment, that is some BS. U talking reckless about a country u dont even live in…… And talking about no incentive??? Canadian doctors are paid market rate by the government fam….. and its in the governments best interst to make sure people are HEAlTHY….. In Canadian we do Sickness Prevention and Education, in the USA they want you to get Sick so they can "treat you" = $$$$…. but look at your country, bunch of sick fat people

You all do realize that if you can't afford it because you make under a certain adjusted income the government will give you a voucher to purchase health insurance, right? How is that bad?

We already pay for everyones health insurance because people use emergency services as primary care, and when they don't pay the taxpayer picks up the tab for the hospital. All this does is make their health care a less wasteful primary care instead of wasteful emergency services...
Lol at believing Christians who are against this.

Yeah, Jesus wants your tax money for the latest state of the art weapons systems and tax cuts for corporations, but paying some of your money so that poor people can get health care is the devil...fu*k yall

Sooooooooooooo under our current system, my wife could not get health insurance because she has pre existing conditions, its not we cant afford premiums, its a stipulation that is allowed because insurance companies are able to not cover pay they might have to pay for. And this makes sense to you? Allowing my wife to get healthcare is not communism you dumbass nor socialism...........its just reform from a system that was in desperate need of it no more no less..............I know to some of you blaming the black man for everything wrong in this country is how you've gotten by so many years........but some of you really need to understand the difference between a mandated dictatorship government, and a progressive government who is trying to bring America to the forefront with the rest of the world. And I am anti-government......but that does not mean I have to be a fool about facts that are there if I just take the time to see them.

To the fu*king jack a.sses that keep throwing up that bullsh*t land of the free propaganda bullsh*t. If this land was sooo fu*kin free, I would be able to smoke and have as much weed as i want too but i cant. IF i have it, i get find or go to jail. Oh and if this land was so free i wouldnt pay for insurance on my cars and i would smash into your nice a.ss whip and ride the fu*k off leaving u to pay for it, as i give u a middle finger salute hoe. We pay taxes to play our part in keeping the country running, yea some of it gets abused but its something that for the most part benefits us all. Oh wait the land of the free f*gs must be rich so they aint got to pay it. im so fu*king tired of hearing a.ss holes complain about their so called freedom being taken away...U sound like bi*ches. I think it was Dr Sonja Gupta(CNN) did a special on health care in america and abroad. Switzerland's health care was on point and they have a socialized health care system, they setting the standard...our sh*t is at the fu*king bottom, its an old system thats fu*ked up, its in need of reform. At least Obama is taking steps to fix our sh*t, weather these old a.ss good ol boy rich bi*ches want it or not. Like every thing new its gonna have its fair share of bugs and problems but give it time and that sh*t will hopefully get ironed out. A better health care system is something everybody can use weather u your self is fine or not...think about ur fu*king kids and future family.

China never has been Communist. That's like saying that North Korea is a beacon of Democracy because they call themselves the "Democratic People's Republic"?

Then why does everyone seem to believe that China is Communist because they tag themselves with the word?

\ A better health care system is something everybody can use weather u your self is fine or not...think about ur fu*king kids and future family.[/QUOTE]


Think about our *expletive* kids and future family? OK. I don't feel like burdening our kids with such a massive debt that already exists. I especially don't feel like worsening that by giving out free health care. Especially to the dead beats that live off welfare for their entire lives, sitting around popping out babies and doing drugs. Welfare is a great thing to have for tthose that need it TEMPORARILY. Unfortunately, in our day and age, the majority of welfare recipients have no intention of getting a job. What needs to be revisited is how we delegate our welfare monies. Limit the time people can be on it. Limit the amount of kids you can have and be paid extra for. There are so many flaws in that system alone, what makes ANYONE think Obama, who has no history in healthcare (I work in healthcare and have for 5 years and STILL get confused), along with a bunch of other congressmen/women with no history in healthcare, can truly fix a problem so large, so complex, and so filled with quandries? Health care reform? YES. Please, let's reform the system somehow. But socialized medicine? Healthcare for all? Not the solution. OBAMACARE is certainly not a fix. It's a bandaid on a papercut bandaid on a large artery spewing out blood.
