What is so horrible about Obama's Health plan. Why you can't make your own decisions? Why you have to follow special interest groups?

To be honest, I went straight to THE source. The bill itself. A group of us ATSers have gone through the arduous task of dissecting the bill here.

If you are interested, I recommend reading the thread, although it is lengthy, so take your time.

Also, please note that the thread starts with a list of supposed problems with the bill, so the approach of the thread was to verify if the problems were real or not... many are not real and many are exaggerated.

I am aware of it and I read that before. But I am going to ask you. What if we don't get the reform and Obama drop this Plan just like Hillary Clinton dropped it, would the Insurance Agencies have the heart to do something about caring for Americans. I don't think you followed any of the links on my post. And that concerns me if you are open minded. Obama's health Plan good or bad, at least it will be in the loop and Americans will be able to demand changes or further tweaking. But if we don't have the Plan in effect, we will always be on the mercy of special interest groups just like we are now.

Honestly, I am perfectly willing to let this bill drop. I don't think this is the right course of action at all. I don't have a bias for or against socialized medicine or single payer, or whatever you want to call it. I have a serious problem with a extremely poorly written bill that doesn't really address the problems in the insurance industry.

1) I think this may simply be resolved by forcing all medical establishments to be not for profit
2) Enforcing tort reform to prevent outragous settlements not just against doctors and hospitals, but against everyone in general (thinking back to the woman who spilled coffee in her lap and won millions from McDonalds :@@

3) Providing some mechanism for an applied insurance credit that allows people who are not covered by their jobs or who cannot afford the insurance offered by their jobs a way to purchase at least a basic plan or coverage.

All that being said, you are right, I have not persused all of your links. I have taken time to educate myself on the issues regarding woman's health, the problems with the poor, etc. I agree that our medical system is broken and terrible. But I won't agree to replace one system with another that is just as bad under the premise that "we'll just fix it later"
