    KEEP IT IF YOU LIKE IT

    If you like your private health plan, keep it and keep paying the price and the service. Right wingers are so afraid people will leave their private healthcare plan for cheaper government health care plan. If they love their private so much, no matter how much the cost, why would they leave for a cheaper government plan? They have it now, they are paying the price, Obama’s lets them keep it. If they leave, then they did not like it as much as right winger say they do.
    Right winger keep saying, 90% of Americans have health care and that make it look good, but there are still 10% who do not have health care. So what is 10% of the population? 47 million? Right wingers make the 10% unimportant.

    Again, we have always had non profit health insurance companies and their rates have been the same as the rates for profit health insurance companies charge, so there is no reason to assume a public plan will be cheaper unless it is subsidized by tax dollars. If it is not subisidized and charges less than non profit and for profit companies charge, it will quickly go broke.

    When Obamasubsidized says you will be able to keep your present insurance plan, he is lying. First, the House bill and the Kennedy-Dodd bill both say you will be fined if you don't provide proof to the IRS a government approved health insurance plan, so if your present plan is not government approved, you will either have to change plans or pay a hefty fine. Second, including provisions such as insuring people with pre existing conditions at standard rates will raise the cost of health insurance for everyone, so some employers may choose to stop providing health insurance to their employees and pay the prescribed penalty, which means you will have to go out on your own to try to find health insurance.
