I am not sure as to were I stand, but I guess you could say that I might be in favor of it. The whole health care system needs to be re-vamped. I have been watching the bills from my doctors and the hospital and have noticed the when I didnt have insurance I was only charge a small fee, and when I go insurance, I noticed that the fee I had to pay was the same, but the amount that was being billed to my insurance was 5 times higher. A trip the the e.r. today just to walk in the door was 100.00, and they are quick to send you the bill for that, I got the bill 2 days ago for some x-rays, (radiology bill to follow later) and was only charged 18.00, but 300.00 was being billed to my insurance. Watch your EOB (explination of benefits) statements and you will see what I mean.

Obama's health care reform proposal (actually it is Reids and Pelosi's proposal) does nothing to reform the system. It only adds more problems to a system that is in need of reform. The government has been well aware that medicare fraud is rampant within that program but never cared enough to do anything about it. Billions of dollars of fraud and the government only allowed like .02% of their budget to be allotted to do something about the fraud. Needless to say nothing was ever done. This is the same government that claims they now have all the answers about health care reform. Individual care will be rationed. You will wait for months for tests and appointments. It is a fact that when you deal with the government you have to go through all the red tape and jump all their hurdles to get anything done. The government claims that only 2% of the population will take the public option and it will still cost taxpayers over a trillion dollars. Oops, sorry. President Nancy Pelosi says I should use the words "consumer option" instead of public option and she says there wont be a tax on the middle class but rather a surcharge with a fancy new name. There's no way this health care reform can fail with Nancy's seal of approval on it, huh ? She doesn't lie and use evasive wording to cover up the meaning of the words in the proposal.

President Obama doesn't have a clue what the health care proposal is and doesn't care what it details. Neither do any of the other politicians. They have all opted NOT to go with the miracle cheap government option. Things that make you go hmmmmm.

obama's takeover of the health care system will result in medical care equal to that which is offered in canada - if you think the canadian plan is so good, and you want canadian health care, perhaps you might want to move to canada -

obama's scheme has very little to do with improvement of health care and everything to do with taking over more and more of our daily lives -
