    Obamacare proponents

    Will you get on the public plan when it passes? We all know we support, or oppose the bill, so let's keep that to a minimum.

    Re: Obamacare proponents

    Depends on my situation at the time. I would not actively switch to it, but if I need insurance, then yes.

    I most likely will.

    But I'm not yet convinced that a public plan is actually going to pass; I think the odds are still against it.

    I can't. This is important.

    I'm going to opt for the same Plan, that Congress has. What do you think my chances are?

    Oh, it's going to pass. You can bet on that.

    I have no doubt that significant health reform will pass. Whether or not it will include a public plan is very much in doubt, as I'm not sure there are 60 votes in the Senate. I'd give it less than 50-50 odds.


    But if it does, I will probably participate in the public option. I currently have an individual plan that I do not trust at all. I'm absolutely convinced that if I had a serious illness, the insurance company would do everything they could to find an excuse not to pay, kick me off the plan, or raise my rates to unaffordable prices.

    C. Don't know.

    Bill has not passed. Would like more information about public option if and when bill passes.

    Re: Obamacare proponents

    By the way, when making polls, it is usually a good idea to have an "other" option, or an "I don't know" option. I could not vote, since for me it is situational.

    Re: Obamacare proponents

    I currently do not have health insurance of any sort.

    I am a younger person (20-30 range) who is less likely to need health insurance.

    So I chose not to acquire any.

    This may or may not be a good idea.

    If I decide to get health coverage, I would prefer a plan which only covered unforeseen problems, and then only over a set amount.

    For example, if any of my medical issues would cost me over, say, $500, my insurance plan would cover them.

    However, I do not have any idea where I could acquire such a plan.
    -----------------------------------
    In regards to a potential public plan, I'm really not sure what I would do.

    I personally am currently opposed to it, based on second or third-hand information.

    As a result of this, I would be inclined to avoid it on basic principle, but that could change.

    Further, I do not think a bill containing a "public health insurance" plan would pass through congress.

    There is simply too much opposition to it.

    It's not. When I was 23, I had to have my gall bladder taken out, which is inpatient surgery. You would be scared at the bill you would end up with from something as simple as that.
