• This will be, in the end a Canadian-style single-payer health care system. If anyone thinks that's good, count the number of hospitals on this side of the border that cater to Canadians. Ask Canadian politician Danny Williams who came over here for surgery because they didn't have any specialists

• According to the New England Journal of Medicine, if this bill is passed nearly one third of physicians would quit practicing medicine

• This is about power and money. The unions along with government will control your health care along with government, enforced through the IRS

• You are going to pay for this without any benefits until 2014

Do you think that the government is actually going to take your money and put in a safe for two to four years and not touch it? That's the only reason why the bill doesn't cost more, because you don't get any benefits for four years — you're paying in, with nothing in return.

Just from reading this list I'm only against number 3. But I'm not firm in my stance. I honestly need a LOT more information on each of these.

Why? I think it will encourage more mooching... 22, out of college... get a job.
