    Default Obama to Sign Health Care Bill Today

    The Prez will sign health care reform legislation into law today. The $940 billion plan will extend health care to 32 million Americans.

    Are we happy? Angry? Just sick of talking about it? Discuss!

    Angry, when over 70% of americans do not want this how did it pass? Yes we need health insurance reform, yes there are by most estimates 10% of the American people who do not have health insurance( but if you look at the numbers only about 15 million who actualy want/need it), but come on, over haul approximately 1/6 of our economy for 15 million people when we have over 270 million in this country who have health insurance?

    Then on top of everyting, explain how we are going to spend 940 billion dollars yet they are saying we are going to realize 138 billion in savings? I simply do not understand that math.

    This bill will fundamentally change our country and in my humble opinion, not in a positive way.

    Like I said before, I pity my children and grandchildren, they will be the ones to suffer the consequences of these idiots actions. So much for representation and taxation, but isn't that what the revolutionary war was about.

    this benefits the few at the expense of the many and isn't really about improving health care. It is about extending the tentacles of the federal govt. How else to describe somethign that includes 16,000 new IRS agents to monitor compliance. It's another trillion dollars that we don't have, and sharp observers will note the inherent problem of "paying" for this by cutting Medicare reimbursements by a half-trillion. Imagine, cutting a program whose ranks will swell as Boomers retire. How's that going to work?

    The reality is that things like pre-existing conditions, covering those who could not afford it (as opposed to those who choose to not have it), and other things could have been done. But that wasn't the point. When a candidate says he wants to transform society, it's a good idea to figure out what that means. Well, along with the army of IRS folks, it means more than 100 new agencies that will have to be staffed and perpetually paid for, tax increases to cover the bill because there simply are not enough of the evil rich to do it, and an expansion of the entitlement culture.

    The window to November is short. Get ready for immigration/amnesty, cap and trade, the card check unionization bill, federal encroachment into other areas that were once privately-run, and before long, we're Denmark with better parking. Just look at this bill - does it require the individual to accept any responsibility for his/her health? No. Does it do a thing to address so-called defensive medicine that drives up costs? No. Does it create a system that would allow more companies to compete for your business? Uh, no.

    Default still dreaming, still disappointed

    I am not happy with this bill. I still want Universal Coverage period, nothing less. I do not want to be forced to buy insurance from a private insurance company. I have pre-existing conditions, so while I have been refused coverage prior to this, I can just see the gleam in the eyes of those insurance folks when they make me an offer I cannot, literally or legally, refuse...

    OK, on the other hand, maybe this is a small step towards the day when all Americans will receive the same health care coverage that our congress critters have. But I am not holding my breath.

    Default Total government abuse of the constitution

    I am actually sympathetic to the health insurance companies. I am in another business where I provide preventative health care to people that really care about their well being. One of the many problems with Americans is that they expect complete healthcare and wellness, yet they do little to remain fit, much less healthy. We expect health insurance companies to pay for our poor eating habits and lifestyles, all the while, we maintain our automobiles better than we maintain our bodies. We expect health insurance companies to completely fund our unheathy lives. Health insurance is a poor business model for delivering health care, however, our system could work much better with a few reforms such as tort reform, increased competition through interstate coverage, tax credits for small business owners, health savings accounts, deductability for preventative care, etc. The Democrats think that overhauling the entire system is the answer, yet we as a society cannot effectively deliver mail or even count the number of our own citizens. Obama care will be the downfall of our society and I, for one, am not in favor of passing along the debt of my generation to my son who will be enslaved to pay the freight for an ill conceived health care overhaul. The Republicans will retake the House and Senate in November 2010 and bring our Country back to fiscal responsibility and accountability.

    The Democrats have trampled all over our constitution and have totally disregarded the will of the people. While I do not like any concentration of power in either party as it only encourages abuses from both sides, I'll gladly work diligently to oust Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barack Obama, Joe Biden and all of the other liberals who endorse and promulgate the socialistic agenda.

    Lastly, my good friend Mel Holsinger and I completely understand preexisting conditions has we both have suffered heart ailments in the past. I am supportative of muzzling the insurance companies from abusive practices such as denying preexisting conditions, policy cancellations, etc. We are an inteliigent Nation with many brilliant minds. We can adjust our current system through small, well reasoned legislative changes that accomplish our goals while still maintaining free market competition and common sense. As Mel aptly stated above, how in the heck are we going to pay for this ridiculous attempt to provide health care for such a small percentage of our population?

    It is time that we as Americans stand up, cast our votes and stop the madness. For too many years, we all have sat around and agreed that our dysfunctional government has gotten out of control, have invaded our lives, have slowly and persistently pervaded our lives with too many regulations, mandates, taxes and protections that we all agree must stop. GET OUT AND VOTE! TELL YOUR FRIENDS THAT WE MUST TAKE AMERICA BACK. GET INVOLVED, QUIT TALKING, WHINING AND COMPLAINING AND CHANGE AMERICA!!!!!!!
