    Allowing interstate competition for healthcare insurance would be a nice start.
    I totally agree...obamacare needs to go its a mess...they slapped that big pile of crap together and had no clue what they were doing...

    We absolutely need health care reform...there are just too many americans that dont have it...and MANY of them are working and cant afford health insurance under any circumstances....
    The biggest problem with us every getting meaningful reform is there are waaay to many millions of people making waaay to much money off the status quo with health care...Doctors, Hosp Investors...Mri owners..etc etc etc...the gop will never pass any healthcare reform unless it just screws the middleclass and poor....

    I would like to add one thing...alot of people love to mention Canadas health care and how great it is...theres alot of canadians vacation where I am...and they all laugh when I say that and they tell me...you must be talking to very young canadians that only need medical care for sniffles and the flu...they also tell me all the best canadian drs migrate to the usa to make money...dont know if thats gospel but thats what i was told directly by more than a couple....

    Okay, you've got a point, there, since NP's lean if "very conservative". But that still doesn't mean I am left-wing.

    Your poll question is "Do you think Obamacare should be repealed?" I voted yes.

    I also said it (Obamacare) should be tossed into the dumper...now.

    My lean is conservative...yet you called me your left-winged friend.

    I think I was very clear and that the confusion is on your part.
    By suggesting throwing the video in the trash led me to believe that you yourself don't believe in the point its trying to make..........I don't think you were clear on that................I will apologize for insinuating that your a lefty though.........

    Do you have your reading or driving glasses on right now? Anyways here is a few reasons why I think it is good overall:

    -No denial of coverage
    -Saves families money
    -Quality of healthcare gets better
    -Tax deductions
    -A more competitive insurance market
    -Things to safe guard against malpractice

    There are a few things that I am not sure about I've read a lot of conflicting data and this plan is far from perfect but it is far better than anything we have had in my lifetime.

    The people that this would effect would have their taxes slightly raised federally, mostly younger single people that would get all of it back federally anyways since most people under 25 that are single live with their parents, go to school, or have roommates nowadays. These folks are also not denied coverage themselves to be on their parents insurance. Because these people fall in the lower income brackets they will get all of their federal tax back at the end of the year. Obama care actually does cost a decent amount, but its cost span all the way up until 2022 that you are referring to--much of the cost incurred about 60% of that will all be incurred by 2013. This also is including the costs of cutting and making medicare more efficient.

    On the flip side, this could all be easily paid for if the military and intelligence budgets were cut back to 2001 levels, social programs were more efficient and parts of the government were more automated. Get rid of a couple of loopholes and revert taxes to 2001 levels as well and in 1 year that trillion that we spend in the course of 15 years is already paid.

    Absolutely. I am not in favor of government mandated insurance at all. I want less government involvement with medical care...not more
