Why are so many people against Health Care Reform?
All it is doing is making sure the 50 million other Americans who don’t have health insurance can recieve it and make Health Insurance companies and the such be honest and fair with their clients. Why are people against that? It’s not socialism. In fact, only 55% of our country’s economy is in the private sector, making the other half government and state government run. So we already have government runned businesses.

The Public Option is exactly what it’s called; AN OPTION! It’s not mandated that you recieve this government runned health insurance, it’s just out there for those who need cheap , but quality health care. And don’t even get me started about the rediculous Death Panel bull because Sarah Palin COMPLETELY doesn’t get the fact that insurance companies have been deciding who lives and who dies for the past 30 years! Doing exactly what Sarah Palin is so against BUT FOR A PROFIT!

Doesn’t the fact that insurance companies have TWO lobbyist for EVERY person in Congress startle you or concern you at all? Don’t throw that “Well the Government has the power to make things official, that’s why they shouldn’t be running health care” Oh please, companies can make things official, too. They can set up rules and polices and deny you coverage because guess what? THEY DO NOT HAVE TO SERVE TO YOU! They do so for a profit and if you don’t want to be under them, they already have the next tom and jerry ready to step right up, proudly and recieve their dosage of unfairly high priced medicine.

Oh, but you say our debt will increase greatly and cause our children to take on the burden we gave them you say?? Want to know why we already are 12 trillion dollars in debt? Because some clueless cowboy named George Bush decided to declare two wars on two countries and not even realize we can’ afford shit like that.

Yes, I am against the Iraq War. No, I am not a anti-american Liberal whiner. Yes, this really is question with a hint of opinion.
So why are you against Health Care Reform if it’s SOLE purpose is to save lives, not fuck shit up?
To be very honest, I don’t know a lot about this Health Care bill since it’s a 2,000 page bill. This “rant” was all from what I heard from NPR, my own research and other non-mainstream news outlets. I have actually heard from CNN that 60% of the country is actually in favor of the health care bill and, from what I remember hearing on NPR, abortion will not be covered in the bill.

You are so badly misled that I hardly know where to start. The current plan will still leave millions of Americans uncovered, to say nothing of the illegals. Who will care for them? Costs will not go down. If deficits are OK now why were bad under Bush? The cost of wars is less only a small part of total spending and not the cause of deficits. Too much spending on social programs and pork is the cause.

You do understand that this health care bill rewards the insurance companies don’t you! It requires everyone to use their services or get fined. Insurance stock went through the roof when the public option was pulled….. Read more before you post!

YOUR RANT has been noted to the proper authorities….and this bill for your information(you need information as you are sadly lacking) is NOT reform it is a power grab for 1/6th of the economy.

Answer by Clarus A
In order to understand the opposition you must understand this simple fact: the road to hell is paved with good intentions. I find that you are focusing far to much on the obviously great sounding benefits (who could possibly be against more affordable/free stuff!?!). There are legitimate concerns against this type of reform. It’s not as simple as saying “Anyone who is against it must be paid off”.

Also think about this: if it was really that simple and harmless for government to make health care affordable, abundant and better quality, why don’t they take control of the entire economy? The reality is that they cannot control these sorts of things. they can try, but it always does more harm than good –sooner or later.

The greatest problem is that it is a government mandate that controls the lives of Americans in respects to their healthcare, a right that is not Constitutionally given to the government. We are slowly turning into a socialist country by thinking we can make people buy certain insurance in certain amounts and if they don’t buy enough, we fine them. If they buy too much, we tax them. If they don’t buy any, we fine them 2.5% of their income or throw them in jail.
Further, it uses taxpayers money to fund abortion.
Oh, and how are we going to pay for it? Can you say cuts in medicare? You need to get your facts straight. The majority of americans both on the left and right, are actually against this healthcare bill. It’s pretty much unanimous – they need to start over.

We all want healthcare reform. But when NARAL and the National Right to Life both oppose this bill, you know somethings wrong.

18 million people will still be without insurance even after this. You’ll be fined for not having in. It will have to be rationed since more will have to be insured and we dont have enough doctors to treat them. Quality of care will go down. Go down to your local Welfare office or a VA hospital. Thats what you are getting.

Most people are worried that their current insurance plan will disappear, they are against a mandated levy of 8 per cent of income for an individual plan, They think they will go to jail if they don’t buy insurance. People don’t really care about national debt or deficit. They never have before. It is a fear of Obama. And it isnt even a White House health plan. He designated the Congress to write it. The average person is not an economist nor a public policy planner, so people don’t really understand whats going on.

We already have two healthcare systems in effect that are due to goe into bankruptcy in the next 20 years, Medicaid and Medicare. Personally, I think that before we start a new healthcare system that will spend a Trillion dollars, we should do what we can to fix the ones we already have in place, so our country does not go into bankruptcy.

If we go by what you said about why we’re in debt, don’t you think we should end those wars first and work off some debt before committing to a program that’s even more expensive than those two wars put together.

There are lobbyists and there will always be lobbyists… but what I think is scary is what the people for the bill are doing to make sure it passes. They are literally buying the Senator’s votes… The Senator from Nebraska is only going along with it cause they made a deal that Nebraska will never have to pay for Medicaid ever again.

If it really is so good as you say it is, why do Democrats have to buy other Democratic votes? Wouldn’t it be passed by everyone without all this arguing?

Also, where will the money for this program be coming from? More taxes? The American People are on hard times as it is with the bad economy and unemployment being so high, adding another tax ontop of that wouldn’t be a good idea in my opinion. Even if the Wars are ending, it won’t cover the amount that they’re planning on spending.

Insurance companies do things for profit… in order to get profit, they need to cater to your needs, therefore they have to make health care high quality for you or else you and your money could leave them behind.

I am not against a public option, but that’s what it should be… an option with no penalties if we choose not to go with it. Right now our country is in no condition to spend another trillion dollars, once our debt goes down, I’m sure even republicans would be more open minded to this, but now is not the time, nor the place.
