If you find yourself on the fence, here is one more nugget to consider. One of the big reasons Obama and his henchmen are pushing this is that they see it as a foot in the door to socialized medicine (complete government control of all health decisions and expenditures). There is ample evidence, and in their own words, affirming this truth. They will force everyone to take government insurance (think medicare or medicaid). This will eventually destroy the private insurance industry as they cannot compete against a government (taxpayer) subsidized entity. The end result is everyone will pay EVEN MORE for Obama's crappy government plan.
Why do I call it crappy? Ask a poor person, a health care provider or an elderly person and they will let you know.
Now, one of the ways Obama has sold this garbage is that it would save $$$ and stop the "profiteering" of "big insurance companies." Excuse me?
The top 10 health insurers COMBINED earned profits of just over $8 Billion. Let that number sink in for a tic.
Medicare FRAUD in the USA cost you and me $60 BILLION last year. And that's for about 45 million Medicare victims. Probably half of those $$$ went to ACORN and/or funded Obama's election, but I digress.
How in the wide, wide, world of sports will that number not increase a hundredfold when you force another 200 million people to suffer with some bureaucratic government boondoggle of an insurance plan?

Say it once again, loud and with feeling:
THERE IS NOTHING THAT THE GOVERNMENT CAN DO BETTER AND CHEAPER THAN THE PRIVATE SECTOR!
