We already do pay for it, in a very inefficient manner, use of ERs, delayed treatment resulting in higher costs etc. W e pay for it already

are you in the > 250 K bracket? if so, I don't feel sorry for you or think you can't afford it (by the way, I am in that bracket)
So stay with it, you have the choice!
.Personally, I don't want OBAMACARE! I like our united healthcare.
I have lots of medical issues and united healthcare can't even completely cover them.
how about every person in this country? Do you really believe that there are people in this country that do not deserve access to health care?
So where on earth is this money for this program supposed to come from? Do I believe in helping people? Yes, but you can't help every person in the world.
very true, so your care is already rationed
It will never happen. Even places with government health care have issues. Its not all fun and games. I already have to wait over 1 week to see my OBGYN when I have serious issues going on. And I don't even get to see an OBGYN, I have to see a nurse first!
My European and Canadian relatives don't think so, they think it is insane that we can't get care when we need it. but it wouldn't be just walking into a hospital, it would be effectively utilizing primary care.
The hospitals are so overbooked that it takes weeks or even months to get in and see a REAL doctor. To think that that many people can just walk into a hospital and get help is just insane.
the current package is not perfect, but it is a step in the right direction. One of the important steps is to spread cost out to everyone, so we all pay less in the long run. It's also a good start to a better system. the previous one was terrible
When will the hospitals have tim to deal with them? There aren't enough doctors coming out of college and residency programs to fill these spots. To me, it sounds like a complete mess. I don't understand how this is supposed to get done.
