    Re: New Health Care Plan

    I voted neutral simply because I haven't been paying enough attention to the details of the plan. I'm hoping that this poll question will give me a better understanding of the bill.

    Socialism sucks, is why.

    I shouldn't have to pay for the health care of the useless, the useless in this case being those who would pay for their own.

    Which one? There are at least five different bills circulating Congress, and none of them are finalized.

    Re: New Health Care Plan

    Against- Reasoning:

    -It will increase our deficit
    -It is immoral
    -It is not the government's place to issue health insurance
    -It will lead to the stifling of free market health care
    -I don't want to see tax increases to pay for it
    -I do not believe it to be Constitutional

    I have little faith in the ability of our government to reform healthcare. This will certainly balloon our deficit and I have little faith in the ability of our government to close the budget gap that will eventually strangle this nation

    Re: New Health Care Plan

    If it was an effort aimed at "We'll take you if they won't" meaning the government would provide some sort of healthcare coverage for those unable to get it from a private market, I would likely support it.

    It looks more like the government is going to set the rules that will make it impossible for insurance companies to recoup their paid out losses, through increased premiums, thereby bankrupting them. They are also looking at a fine those people that do not purchase a private plan or public plan, $1000, and they are also going to make it illegal to switch to a different private insurer once the public plan is in place. Once you go off your current provider you will have to enroll in the public plan.

    Thats what I've read so far and it looks like anything but comprehensive healthcare reform aimed at helping the uninsured, but rather the destruction of an industry, thereby eventually forcing everybody onto the public plan once private insurers are no longer able to afford doing business because the foundation of how they recoup their payouts will be eliminated.

    Why?

    Obama helped create this abomination.

    Re: New Health Care Plan

    Against.

    • It costs too much
    • It will raise healthcare costs to the individual
    • It does nothing to restrain the growth of healthcare costs
    • It is unconstitutional
