With the price of healthcare and the economic climate that this country is in, its not a matter of people being deadbeats or wanting something for nothing. Its a matter of having to choose between paying your bills or going to the doctor when your sick, which shouldn't have to be a choice in the first place. I am fortunate enough to have health insurance but often find myself not going to the doctor unless its an extreme emergency because I don't have the money to pay what the insurance doesn't cover. Just some examples of why its important to support this bill. The company that I work for does not provide insurance for my hourly staff, I have employees that work 2 and 3 jobs just to make ends meet and neglect their health because they still can't afford the doctor. One employee is an amateur boxer, he was knocked unconcious and had some serious head trauma and was in a coma for several days, when he regained conciousness he checked himself out of the hospital a day later because he could not afford it. Another employee hadn't seen a doctor in several years, one night he was feeling extremely ill and was having trouble breathing, we offered to take him to the hospital but he refused, a week later we found out he had stage 4 lung cancer, he was only 22 and a non smoker so he had no reason to think it could be anything like that. It probably could have been detected earlier if healthcare was more affordable or if he had some kind of coverage. These are just a few stories, I'm sure most of you out there know people in situations like this. Its not right for seniors living on fixed incomes to have to skip a daily dose  of medication just to make it last longer. Sure theres people out there that abuse the system but thats going to happen no matter what, the rest of society should not have to suffer because of that. If I have to pay a few extra dollars in taxes to make sure that there is help out there for those that need it, so be it. You never know when you will fall on hard times, but you'll gald to know that help is out there if you need it.

I'd rather have a no biased view (hard to find) on the subject matter than strictly adhere to his socialist propaganda.

Can't say I'm extremely well informed on the subject matter yet though. I may come back to this.

That's cool, at least you're not blowing it off or forming an uninformed opinion. Everyone should be well informed on this one, It is very important. I've gotten letters from 2 of my district representatives about it, (they do support it). Would share them with you but do not have their permission to do so.
Check it out, do some research of your own and then come back. Everyone has a right to their opinion and the right to voice it.
That is why I like Michael Moore, he is not afraid to voice his opinion and turn over the rocks that our government would like to leave burried. I know a lot of people don't like him for various reasons but he does show us a lot of things that the gov. would rather we not know about.
