There is a lot of discussion out there on the new health care bill. This is really not the forum for a debate, but I can give my opinion and welcome the opinion others.
First, I think something has to be done about health care (or lack of) in the United States. What we are doing is not working. Second, I work hard to pay for my health insurance....I do not expect anything for free(unless I have a coupon). We are a country founded on hard work and a strong work ethic. I think we should keep it that way! Third, I am sure there are some good aspects to this bill, but it seems like too many changes all lumped into one. I have the following questions: Just how is this to be funded? Are we really providing health insurance to people who are in this country illegally? Are really limiting health care to those over a certain age? Will we really require our senior citizens to attend advanced directive workshops? Who will pay for that?
My understanding is that this bill is over 1000 pages long. Did anyone read it in its entirety? Why was it passed on a Sunday when everyone should be at home for rest and worship?
O.K. I am done. I just have more questions and fewer answers.
