How can he do that? Right now I have no individual health insurance and broke...

If we cannot be forced to buy health insurance then we cannot be forced to buy car insurance. Same thing. All States require owners to have car insurance so why not health insurance? Are the HMO's in charge of America or are Americans?
Every American should have access to medical care for serious medical conditions without losing everything they have worked for all their lives. The HMO's deny more claims than approve to save money. HMO's only care about money not the quality care of their insured.


The Republicans are the ultimate hypocrites!

How do we pay for health care reform ?

**  How do you pay for tax cuts for the wealthy  ?

1.     First attempt : threatening Social Security and Medicare Cut through the deficit panel.

2.     Second attempt : holding the desperate Hostage, say, by the Ransom.

**  Inaction cost, $9trillion over the next decade, ((Some of CBO analysis : While the costs of the financial bailouts and economic stimulus bills are staggering, they are only a fraction of the coming costs from Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Over the next decade, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projects that each year Medicaid will expand by 7 percent, Medicare by 6 percent, and Social Security by 5 percent. These programs face a 75-year shortfall of $43 trillion--60 times greater than the gross cost of the $700 billion TARP financial bailout)).

Over the duration of healthcare debate, using the preliminary cost analysis of CBO, the reps opposed the public option stubbornly, but after the release of final score, they have been defiant on the referee.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that :
Inaction cost in relation to health care reform totals $9trillion over the next decade. 
Reform will reduce the federal deficit by $143 billion over the next 10 years and as much as $1 trillion during the following decade.
