This program costs trillions and why do you believe anything in it will work? We don't need this POS to solve the basic problems we have with healthcare yet for some reason you want to buy the rhetoric.
You are embarrassed? Do you have health insurance? What are you embarrassed about, the cost of living, quality of live, opportunities for individual wealth creation, per capita income? You don't appear to know a lot about the benefits of living in this country vs. living in Costa Rica.
It is hardly a baby step spending trillions. We currently have Medicaid for the poor, Medicare for the elderly, SCHP for the children, and private insurance which cover 90 percent of the people in this country. So it is acceptable for you to have this healthcare bill for those 10 percent not covered?
Doesn't make a lot of sense to the majority in this country, nor does it make any sense to try to pay for it by Medicare cuts and taxes on businesses that will prevent business from hiring. There are over 15 million Americans unemployed and my bet is they would prefer a job to higher taxes on employers which will prevent hiring.
You want badly to believe what you are told but the fact is history isn't on your side.
