Health Care Reform???
Posted 11 June 2009 - 09:00 PM
Do you agree with Obama's idea of govement healthcare for thosse who dont get it?
Is it fair to the ones who pay for it through their employment?
I think that we are in too deep for anything to work now. We are stuck having ***'s and shady insurance companies. Is there an easy way to fix this???
NO, because it will piss some one of or make our standard of care in America worse.
I could see this plan of Obama's passing and then only large companies offering Health Insurance....so everyone will get goverment insurance and all our taxes will get higher....
Does anyone else have comments, concerns, or better ideasthat can "fix" health insurance
BTW: I dont have health Insurance....I know i should....But my job does not offer it and i can not afford it anyway....Do i Care....Not really....I have not been to the Doctor or sick enough to go in Three years....KNOCKS ON WOOD

I like the back and forth going on with finding the BEST solution. I think Obama is going to get his way and within a year we will have some form of a new health care.
How it will be implemented and the cost is still up in the air.
If it's 100% govt that will suck tremendously. 25-45% I can live with.

Maybe they should look to reform welfare before reforming healthcare and Insurance.

June 12 (Bloomberg) -- Health-care overhaul legislation being drafted by House Democrats will include $600 billion in tax increases and $400 billion in cuts to Medicare and Medicaid, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charles Rangel said.
Democrats will work on the bill’s details next week as they struggle through “what kind of heartburn” it will cause to agree on how to pay for revamping the health-care system, Rangel, a New York Democrat, said today. He also said the measure’s cost will reach beyond the $634 billion President Barack Obama proposed in his budget request to Congress as a down payment for the policy changes.
Asked whether the cost of a health-care overhaul would be more than $1 trillion, Rangel said, “the answer is yes.”

I really dont want to pay more taxes just so I and milions of uninsured peeps can get health care....We definatley dont need to cut Medicare, that is one thing seniors deserve....

It's about 1500 per year. I will be shocked if the care improves, and my taxes don't go up more than 1500 per year to cover this thing.
