I already have health insurance I am happy with, so why throw it away for a new Healthcare system?

I worked for years to earn my healthcare insurance, just as all of my colleagues. When I needed health insurance, I took a job that offered it. My brother, on the other hand, chose to enter the military, and so he therefore has a lifetime health insurance plan thru the VA, as a Vets do. Hillary wants all that to end all these options in favor of government-handled universal healthcare. Why should those of us who already have healthcare insurance want to abandon it for Hillary's plan? Is that fair?

because you don't matter to Hillary or Obama, only the people that need to vote for them to keep getting free stuff matter

Nothing about Hillary's stances are fair for the working men and women in the long run...she wants to "garnish" people's wages if they don't buy into her Hillarycare..sounds an awful lot like communism to me.....

The government tells you what to think, stop thinking for yourself. Hillary will do what is best for the "common good" and for the children! =) Ignorance is strength!

I do not favor Hillary or her plan. But, I am one of the millions who cannot afford private health insurance. I have been self-employed since 1989.

If "free" government health care is such a good idea, why do I fore go my entitlement to it as a retired military member and pay for the insurance offered by my employer? Because government health care sucks.

The costs of healthcare can only go up with competition, this is what economists usually refer to as a natural monopoly. The ideal solution to a natural monopoly situation is to create only one provider in each... More
