    I dont need a clip to be aware of the bleeding heart stories of no insurance, I have lived them.

    But I will be damn if I support in any way forced coverage, outlawing private insurance, Then rationing care under the guise of cost savings.

    Maybe the stupid democrats should pay attention to the CBO report that states cost will increase not decrease under the house plan.

    Why should these people purchase health insurance when 60" plasma TVs are more important? :D

    Yep a smoke screen for sure. I am so sick of the leftists trying to use healthcare to socialize our entire way of life.

    Commie pukes in washinton are going to destroy us all

    The peoples attitudes in that video are a product of the propaganda put out by government beurocrats for decades, now in this new "enlightened" generation, they want everything for free...what they lack to understand is that nothing in life is truly free. Someone has to pay, monetarily, and we all have to pay by sacrificing freedoms.

    Those of you who think it is a compassionate thing to do are ignorant of the facts of socialism and its roots

    The video forgot to mention that a significant portion of the 45 million that are uninsured are also illegal aliens.

    Or already qualify for Medicare/Medicaid, and merely haven't applied for it.

    Does anyone know the real number of uninsured Americans? I see constantly different numbers ranging from 20 million to 50 million +.
