The plan uses money left over from the financial bailouts to give people without heath insurance and those unhappy with their health insurance vouchers, $2000 if your single and $5000 for families. Then it lets you take that money and shop health insurance nationwide to find a plan best suited to your needs.
There are many other good things proposed in this plan IMO, check it out.

Realshanti, Nothing wrong with gaining benefit from something that you payed into for years.
It p's me off when people act like medicaid, medicare, and SS are welfare.
They take the biggest chunk of your paycheck for just that stuff!!! It's only welfare freebies if YOU HAVEN'T PAID IN.
If we could get the peeps that have payed NOTHING into it from raiding SS and Medical programs, we might have a start to fixing this mess.

The same people telling us how great this new health care bill is, are the same people who voted for the bailout, the same people who voted to send people to wars overseas to die, the same people who don't apply the policies/laws they set in place to themselves. Period.

"Whats with the hatred towards the south?
You think that we don't deserve to get paid?
We have kids to feed just like everyone else.
Comments like that are the reason there is still hate in the world.
I agree alien mind. I am beginning to wonder what this argument is really about anyway. Its so hard to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person.
