It is a wonderful program, bringing us another step closer to the Socialist government we all want & need. Capitalism is the downfall of this world, why should people be rewarded for working hard. We are all 1, please conform to what the government tells you will bring happiness to all. I appreciate the fact that the more money I make, the more money is taking away to pay the bills of those unfortunate 3rd generation welfare recipients. Thank God Obama is pushing us all closer together, if those who have would just give more & more, & more-we'll all be happier. The government should make all decisions for us, not just health care, life will be much easier for 1 & all, thinking is overrated, so don't.
Let me ask a basic very important question let's look at your life what if you you became very sick and you might die and the only way you can save your life in the medical industry is if you have insurance but your job doesn't give health insurance (like most jobs don't ) what would think would more important a person life like yours which could happen to you or anybody what would say is more important life or money... whats really stupid and ironic is Prolife people (right to life) are against healthcare they rather see people die and care about money then life, now how ironic is that (hypocrites) and so your question is healthcare a good thing ...your answer is above. ^
As an Australian I reckon take a look at our health care systems which have been around for a long time. Although its not anywhere near perfect, it's much better at providing basic services to everyone and is similar to Obamacare (I'm not commenting on the caveats that have been suggested with it). The US style overly favours private health care and while this means you have excellent surgical and other capabilities for the top earners, the people on main street can barely afford basic treatment. Take a look at our medicare system and how it works with private healthcare. Surely the most needy and disadvantaged should get the priority?
Judging by the comments I would say a lot of people need to do a little more research and get off their ideological tunnel vision platform. It is complex with lots of good and new features as well as things that will need to be changed after failing the test of implementation.
