I don't know much about Obamacare but from what I've heard it is absolutely useless & is just a political ploy to make people believe he's helping the average American. Anything short of National health care is a total waste.
As long as insurance co.s are involved nothing is going to work. They've got to make a profit so whatever rules are put upon them will only end up costing us more in the end. The gov. is used to losing money but insurance so.s are not.
It's as simple as that. I'm all for freedom of choice & I normally want the gov. out of my life but not when it comes to health care. Everyone's health is just too important to leave in the hands of the insurance co.s. For all of you who don't want national health care I pose this simple question:
Do you also want to do away with Medicare too?
Medicare is national health care, you just have to be 65 to qualify.

I think that all states that don't want Obama care should secede from the union.

The way I see it is a certain segment of the population sought out the perfect family. A husband , wife and 2 children. Another segment of the population chooses to have as many children as possible.
The latter is winning the battle because there are more of them. More voters means more Representation , means more social laws passed.
If you really want to stop what's happening , have more children and raise them to vote for the values you cherish.
Untill then, what you consider your country, will slowly disappear.

What I believe is that everyone should be treated equally by the gov. no matter what their status & let the people choose whether to accept what the gov. is willing to give them. I don't believe in welfare but I do believe in a gov. run soup kitchen & bread line. There's no need for anyone to go hungry in this country so if you can't afford to buy food you can wait in line & get what you need. If a guy who makes $200,000 a year wants to do it too then he should have that right but just giving people money or even food stamps that can be used like money is just rewarding poverty. Social services should be for all or for none, its that simple. We have poor people & immigrants who get better health care than a hard working family who make 40 -50,000 a year. That's completely insane.

If the got runs a soup kitchen... where is the incentive to work?

My mom used to give out food at the church to "needy" families. She stopped doing it after several months because most of the people made choices to buy things other than food. Most couples were smokers, probably at least a pack a day = $300/month. That would buy a lot of the basics but their choice was buying cigarettes vs. food since they could get food given to them or receive food stamps. Many, if not all had cell phones also.
People are free to choose (at least we used to be free until Komrade Obama). I don't feel I need to subsidize those that choose cigs, cell phones, alcohol, drugs, gangster wheels, gold teeth etc. over food or paying something toward taking care of themselves.Avatar is a tribute to my Great Grandfather, Andrew Stewart.

Government cannot "give" us anything. All government can do is redistribute our money from those who can and will to those who cannot or won't, without any socila value added.
Soup kitchens are best run by social organizations and religious organizations. These private organizations provide social values along with physical nurishment. Those in need, need both. Government only makes those in need, more needy.Government is a disease......masquerading as its own cure…Ecclesiastes 10:2 NIV

Moochelle needs to be dictating what people can buy with foodstamps rather than sending the food police to the schools....or better yet, get out of our lives all together.Avatar is a tribute to my Great Grandfather, Andrew Stewart.

Social organizations being dependent on government is also Socialism, and it needs to stop. Religious organizations should not be tax exempt for other then moneys direct used for helping others.
How can you say that government should be redistributing our money but not have a say in who that money gets redistributed to? Why should government be involved in the process of helping others at all?
Protection for all is limited to military. Even police forces should not have any Federal influence. We are on the brink of being able to become a police state as it is. I've lived through the police state attitude after the riots over Martin Luther King Jr.'s killing, and I don't want that to ever happen again.Government is a disease......masquerading as its own cure…Ecclesiastes 10:2 NIV
