“Got a new insurance packet today. ALL of my costs are going up. My premiums are going to increase 30% next year, and ALL copays are increasing as well. Never have I seen this much of an increase. I don't listen to anyone else, I am living the results of this new mandate.”

“No you aren't because what you call "Obamacare" won't be instituted until 2014. Right now it is greedy Insurance companies trying to get what they can before that, or your company agreeing to a lower class from their carrier. My co-pay has gone up. The Union tried to fight it, but only managed to get the company to compromise on making it "Open Access". You guys are so ready to blame Obama for everything, when it usually the immediate culprit that is to blame (insurance companies).”

“The blindness of this nation will be our demise. If you think one party doesn't do what the other one does, you are very wrong. There have been examples where the Obama camp has done things because they didn't like what was being said. BOTH men want power and don't like it when they don't have it.”

“You are outraged because Romney was called a racist? LOL Are you ignoring all the things that are being said about Obama and the ever increasing violence and hatred toward us? Are you ignoring everything that is going on around us in our own country? And yet you are outraged because someone called him a racist. SMH”

“We are outraged because this man was called a racist by the Palestinian, Putin is already talking discourse with allowing the missiles shield to set up by the Americans. As this campaign progress, Romney is looking and sounding more scarier with becoming President. You cannot start a war without finding all the facts and Romney look like he already had his hand on the RED Button soon as he hears an American was attacked. Romney is starting look like the President who is ready to set off THIRD WORLD WAR. Maybe it was propheticized to him that the world would end when he gets in office.”

“Plenty of people take the bus or other public transit if they can't afford a vehicle....or maybe buy a used cheap vehicle.    Just the other day, I saw a woman driving a Cadillac Escalade, using food stamps at the grocery store.    Are you friggen kidding me?  And now I'm going to be on the hook for her and her 4 kids health care?   The country is heading towards a revolution...no joke.”

“"But in America today, having health care insurance is no guarantee one will be able to manage the bills when they come due. Some people earning less than $30,000 a year will remain at risk for expenses that go beyond their means. Those individuals may face choices between skipping care and staying sick, or getting treatments they know could put them into debt."
That's the problem. Many people think this new plan will fix everything. It doesn't. They rushed it through while ignoring the elephant in the living room. If something isn't done about health care costs, many will still not be able to afford the care they need.”

BMack4 on Sep 5, 2012 at 18:36:27

“That's what I've been saying all along. Forcing people to buy health insurance does not improve their chances of getting good health care. You still have to pay for it. Health care costs & insurance costs should have been addressed 1st.”

“It doesn't take much to go from being comfortable in the middle class to poverty. A loss of employment, an unexpected illness, a divorce. So many things. Most who are poor never asked to be that way. Yes, some are on welfare because they don't want to make a change or because they believe it's owed to them, but many aren't.”

“I am a Republican and very conservative. However, when it comes to the truly poor and needy, I agree they do need to be taken care of in a better fashion. I am not talking about those who lay around and expect others to take care of them while abusing the system, but those that truly need help. There are so many situations beyond our control, and so many shoes that haven't been walked in. It's time we open our minds and our hearts to those in need.”

John Koth on Sep 2, 2012 at 14:52:44

“To lend to the misconception that they "lay around" is a negative aspect to this argument. I don't like to participate in that kind of assertions. The point she was making is that they dont have a saftey net. Its a kill or be killed environment. They (poor parents) have to worry if their children will even make it home from school. It is a important subject and needs to be addressed. I see more 'taking advantage" of any government program by the rich than the poor. Example. John Bon Jovi pays no property tax on his home in NJ becasue its deemed a farm because he grows olives or somthing like that..bullshit for sure”

“Both sides have a point. There are those who are truly poor due to circumstances beyond their control or due to a choice they can't go back and undo. They really do need assistance. Then there are those who abuse the system and are too lazy to make a change and expect others to be their caretaker. If you could get rid of those who abuse the system and who flaunt their unacceptable behavior, I believe, or at least hope, you would find a lot more empathy for the poor.”
