I have been on the loosing side of the health care game too many times to count. It wasn't until my most recent job that I received benefits. Needless to say I'm very happy I am covered in case of an emergency; but unfortunately those benefits are hard to afford. I pay around $100 a month for my health care, granted it's a PPO so those plans tend to be a little more on the pricey side.
With the health care reform that President Obama is trying to pass, millions of uncovered Americans will have a choice to go to government funded health care. In turn that would save the previously uninsured Americans a large amount of money that would have been wasted on expensive medical bills. With our current insurance system many Americans find it difficult to get health care due to preexisting conditions. They will also be able to turn to government funded health care. With the President's plan we will not eliminate private health care we will simply add government funded health care so Americans have a choice.
The RNC spokesperson Michael Steele has compared the Presidents plan to socialism, giving the American people a choice between private and government funded health care is far from socialism! It seems as if the Republican party doesn't care about the American people, they only seem to care about the money they will loose from the lobbyists of private insurers. The Republican party has been quoted saying "If we're able to stop Obama on this, it will be his Waterloo. It will break him". Now does that sound like a group of people that have the best interest of Americans in mind? No, it seems like the hatred for Obama is clouding the RNC's judgment. The President responded with this "Think about that. This isn't about me. This is about a health-care system that is breaking America's families, breaking America's businesses and breaking America's economy." Now that sounds like someone who's looking out for Americans!
