    Given a choice between health care reform and a tax hike or no health care reform and no tax hike, 47% would prefer to avoid the tax hike and do without reform. Forty-one percent (41%) take the opposite view.....Rasmussen Reports™: The Most Comprehensive Public Opinion Data Anywhere

    No reform will be as bad if not worse than a tax hike as healthcare costs and spending will continue to spiral out of control. Everyone is so worried about how much it costs now that they don't even ponder how much it will cost tomorrow. We have become some of the most short sighted people in the world. It truly is amazing how far we have dropped.

    Yet the CBO has told us the House bill will make health care costs increase even faster than they are now unless health benefits from employers are taxed as regular income and the president and Congressional Dems have rejected this idea, so clearly, in terms of containing health care costs, the "reforms" being proposed in Congress will be worse than doing nothing.

    have you ever considered that health care costs are spiraling out of control because of government regulation?
