I think there schould be a preventative Healthcare System that treats people if they have problems. Once the problem is fullblown, it costs the Government much more money at that point. I dont know exactly what the Tea partys thinking is on that subject. At this point if you really need medical care and dont have insurance, you can walk in any Emergecy Room and they have to treat you free of charge.

People need to learn how to take care of themselves. The rest of us who do should not be forced to buy into an insurance plan designed to give the government more spending power. The tea party supports the US Constitution, something that Obamacare will walk all over if allowed to pass. Hospitals that are financed partially through government programs MUST treat the poor for free. How do you think illegals in this country get treated? There are options for the poor.

The tea party is not in favor of killing anyone. But to force me to buy insurance from the government (Obama care) is wrong. And should I decide to keep my current doctor I have to pay a penalty of $2000.00 per person per year in the family is insanity. Obama's healthcare is socialism, they will tell you what you can eat, drink, forbid you to smoke. Force you to maintain a certain weight or you will not get "free" healthcare. Fat people who smoke and eat Twinkies, beware your government under Obama will let you die because of your excesses.

My husband and I almost died in the past two years.
He got an ecoli infection one week after prostate surgery. Almost died. In the hospital 5 days.
I took pills for a urinary tract infection. The pill was not supposed to be prescribed for over four weeks and he prescribed it for 19 months. From that I got severe pneumonia and was in the hospital 6 days.
We should have sued him but were so upset we couldn't speak.
What would have been our "option" if we didn't have excellent blue cross insurance. Will we be able to afford this insurance as time goes on (I doubt it)

One in Six people live in poverty. I keep reading this. Seeing this. Hearing this.
It's scary me so bad. My town is one of the poorest in the U.S. The air is the worst. Crime rate for stolen cars - the worst.
Take a stroll through Walmart and almost all the women & men are FAT. The reason they are fat is they do not eat the right foods. They do not eat the right foods because they cannot afford them. Even the little kids are fat. They eat MacDonald, carbs, sweet foods, sweet drinks ... junk. We all know what it is.
This situation ... terrible. I feel a change is coming. It cannot stay this way.
