So I decided to turn the television back to the news channels to get their commentary on this issue.
Holy **** my head is going to explode. I'm more confused now than I was when I was just reading the link that Crip gave me last night. At this time I see no direct benefit to me at this point, and that's okay. I'm fortunate in that I have health insurance and can afford it to pay my premiums. I can see where we will obviously be spending more tax dollars on this, and I'm not totally opposed to that.
However, I'm waiting for the spending offset. Where are we going to reduce in order to carry this? Are we going to end the occupation of Iraq? That would help. Are we going to end the war on drugs? That would help.
I like the idea of providing access to health care to every American. But I would like to see Congress really detail how we are going to pay for it.
