    Well, he did say that he would force all but the smallest businesses to contribute.... and all that upgrading of the drug and insurance companies along with oversight by the government will probably require a small increase in taxes (speculation on my part)....

    How about instead of always expecting congress to have to figure out how to pay for something, why don't the American people pay for it, if it's something we want bad enough.

    Wouldn't it be nice if all the Americans who didn't have health insurance contributed $10 each to a fund. That would be roughly half a Billion dollars to spend.

    Imagine if all the Americans that already have health insurance, but wanted every american to have it, ALSO contributed. We're talking billions of dollars.

    Wouldn't it be nice if that many Americans actually cared enough to do that?

    A once-a-year fee of a measly $10, so that you, and every other fellow American, can have the peace of mind of being able to see a doctor whenever they need to.

    Could we as Americans actually be capable of doing something like that, or would we rather spend the 10 bucks on ourselves for a pack of smokes, a tv guide, and some twinkies, and let congress sort it out?

    Yes, stub your toe and go to the doctor. What a country.

    The US spends $2 trillion per year on health care - how much more is required to fund Obama's plan? The entire Federal budget is nearly $3 trillion

    The tab will be much higher, unless he goes with government price controls which will totaly destroy the health care industry

    Walter Reed was an example of government run health care - is that what the left wants for all of us?
