PAY A LITTLE MORE TAXES in order to pay less for health care. What part of We already pay do these people not understand? We already pay in higher private HC premiums, co-payments, deductions, higher medical services, hospital, doctor and lab fees. Those that have private HC have to take the plan their employers chose and doctors and hospitals they chose. You have no choice in anything when you have private HC. Private HC makes all choices for you, plus we are paying for those who use the HC system and cannot or will not pay like illegal aliens. Pay a little more in taxes for government HC now and make improvements as improvements are needed. Improvements in private HC is not improved as improvements are needed. It would cost to much and profits would be less. Pay a little more and bring down the cost of medical care for all. We even pay more for government HC now like Medicare, Medicaid and veterans medical care. People are afraid and oppose that which they dont understand. They do not understand how HC can cover all and cost less than what they are paying now. We claim to be a democracy but we do not practice democracy. True democracy is not a dog eat dog system. 47 million people without HC is rationing HC. Hand off my HC is radical irrational right wing raving rhetoric. Obama will not take your private HC away but will make it more affordable for you and provide HC for those who dont have HC. Where are the voices of those 47 million who do not have HC? Oh, they are at town hall meetings. They just dont want HC handed to them by a black hand. Period. There is nothing more important than HC for all.
