Why I want to bite the head off anyone calling for the repeal of "Obamacare"

Take away their insurance plan and see how fast the proposals get worked out.

Not Ron Paul, I dont think he's ever opted in for the benefits, stating, he would be a hypocrite if he did. I dont support because i dont want it, the goverment should NOT tell us what we can and cannot do, thats not a free society, thats a an authoritaarion view. Healthcare for all is good, but the man is trying to do it,in a time in our society where the taxpayers cant afford it. If he wants to do it, he should us the American people vote on it, and give us the choice to opt out of it.

I do not think the issue of health care will ever be one people can agree on. There will always been negative and positive consequences. Maybe we should try out Canada's system for a while.

I think this is messed up, people over 65 need health insurance more that anyone else. You get sick as you get older. Noone over 65 should be effected by obamacare but that isn't the case and it's sad.

It says 50% of thoese under 65 are not insurable due to preexisiting condiontions, something Obamacare puts to an end. Meaning with Obamacare you can get insurance, without it you are screwed. Meanwhile congress has 100% insurance guarenteed, so they do not care about the 50% who need Obamacare to have insurance in the future. They have muddied up the waters so people do not realize how badly they screw thenselves if they elect people who will overturn Obamacare.

Nick Pellegrini Com101-6002 said...

The bottom line is that a large majority of the congressmen do not care about the public. They are more concerned about being reelected than they are about improving society or listening to the people who they are supposed to represent. As long as they are covered, the public's health isn't their concern.

Lets get rid of the politicians pensions and health care, then they would be motivated to create a real plan without exclusion.

I think it's pathetic that one of the largest systematic issues for the U.S. is health care. That should be above all number one! Health and medical care is so important.

Obamacare, is no where in the constitution, if it is, please show me, this is socialism, it's not right, it will put about 120 million who already have health care out of it, my parents actually, will spend less money paying the fine for not having it. I refuse to pay for anyone, its my money and I earned it, but you somehow think your entitled to it? .......Taxes are just a way to steal your money.....legally.

So Bryan, would you let people turned down for insurance due to pre-exising conditions die?

If someone had a gun to your head, would you jump off a bridge? Your question is irrelevant, I refuse to pay for some cracked out teenager to have an abortion, something I hate, I refuse to let the corrupt Government tell me what to do with my money, after I've been to Iraq and fought their war. And anonymous, since you refuse to post your name, Am I a medical professional? No. So would I make that decision? No. So your question is irrelevant and is dismissed here in the real world, where life is tough and you deal with the cards your dealt, some cry about what they don't have, while others are thankful for what little they have.

I have a pre-existing medical condition and I still do not believe you should be forced to have insurance that you have to pay for yourself! If you want to make sure everyone can get medical attention, then take it out of the tax payers money everyone pays that... sometimes, but this "use" to be considered a free country and now your forced to pay this and must do that. Pretty soon it going to be like right before the revolutionary war, with taxation and no representation. This is only the start enless everyone starts stating thier opinion in a public fourm.

Funny that one of the GOP frontrunners is pissing off the Dutch, who have universal health care, by saying that they basically euthanize their elderly instead of paying for their medical care. I wonder who pays for Santorum's health care.

Those two pictures say it all, This is just to mest up. They deserve to have thier health insurance.

I have to disagree with the 50% of all americans have pre-exising medical conditions that prevent them from getting insurance? 50% of Americans do not get denied health insurance. The majority of Americans that don't have health insurance don't have health insurance because it's "expensive". Health Insurance is going to be just as "expensive" when it's automatically coming out of your pay check .. and a lot more expensive when you're paying for everyone else who doesn't feel like they should pay for their own. There is already a system set up for people who can't afford it. The government can not FORCE me to have health insurance. (Even though I choose to have it). It's unconstitutional.

In my personal opinion every person should be entitled to healthcare just because it is good to get check ups and stuff like that. it definitely should not be forced upon everybody, but the OPTION to have it would be nice. It would help out people like me who is barelt making enough money for rent yet makes too much for welfare medicaid. I doubt that my grandma would want Obamacare since she has been on the same insurance for 35 years from working with the school district... Point being, it should just be optional...

If my wife loses her job, I would not have insurance.

It is not because of money, but because of rejection by insurance companies.

I have tried. And I am not that sick.

I have a life long friend who is an insurance actuary and she confirms that 50% over 50 would not have insurance if it were not for employers plans...and those plans are disappearing.

Any assumption that it is by choice or simply cost is buying into the insurance companies PR.

Ask an actuary and check out government statistics first.

Bridget West Com 101-4080 said...

I'm on the same page as Bryan and Angelina. Although I think it would be great if we could somehow provide healthcare to all American citizens, there will always be opposing viewpoints on this matter. Like Bryan said, WE should be able to vote on what we want done.

It really angers me that congressmen get to decide everything for us, even though they have no idea what it's like to grow up or live in society without the money that helped them get where they are today

I think everyone should be entitled affordable health inusrance and prescriptions. I worked all my life and had health insurance that I paid through the nose on top of high copayments and deductables. To top it off if you didnt have health insurance in Mass they actually penalize you and make you pay at the end of the year. Something really needs to be done.

while it seems like a good idea to have a national health care system i have experienced it first hand with my close family in England and I can assure it does not work out the way it's supposed to. Because my grandmother is older she is basically treated like dirt and waits 6 months to a year to get necessary tests and treatments done.

I just dont like it that if you dont qualify for medical through your employer, you have to go through leaps and bounds and then pay high premiums to get insurance on your own. I think everyone should have insurance but maybe charge 'reasonable' figures for it, not premiums that could be the cost of house or car payments.
