Why did Mr. Obama the entertainer do such a bad job of selling health care reform?
I read the bill and I am for single payer. The fact is that it will cost the tax payer on average $700 in taxes coming from medacare and $1100 a year. If you don't pay or have a "gold plated" plan it will cost a single person $3800 and a couple $7600 in fines.

Your confusing it with this report: "The average family with health insurance shells out an extra $1,000 a year in premiums to pay for health care for the uninsured, a new report finds." http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/05/28/health/main5045280.shtml?source=RSSattr=Health_5045280

Because the only thing he knows how to do is compaign. He has no experience running anything, is surrounded by leftist "yes" people, has no ability for critical thought and no analytical skills.

What happen if people can't afford the "public option" as well? That is when the fine comes in.

isn't it funny how many people come on this site and say i read the bill, BS, no you didn't that bill is 1100 pages long, if people that we elect and pay won't do it, then im pretty sure you would not do it either for free. DONT lie, give me a link to your source.
Answered By: a - 9/9/2009
well, I am not sure of your numbers. but are you willing to pay $3800 so I can have insurance? see, I already have my own insurance. I don't want to pay for yours too and I doubt if you would want to pay for mine.

Your English grammar and spelling need work. One thing Mr Obama is not is an entertainer. I cannot stand to watch or listen to him. He gags me with his BS, and that certainly is not entertainment. If you favor socialized medicine, it puts your intelligence in question.
