What is all this fuss about the cost of healthcare? I pays $70 per month out of my paycheck for a nice healthcare plan and I can choose my doctor. Its a lot of money but it is less than I pay for beer in a week. Why is everyone complaining about the cost of healthcare? Its stopid.

I think American healthcare is the greatest in the whole world. I am a proud american and I always vote republican. I do not want no communist healthcare like they got everywheres else.

independent voters are seeing that this is rhetoric without substance.the idea that a dinosaur like the government could ever do any thing cost effectively,but to say that they could competitively complete against private insurance, flies in the face of every project were the feds have been involved.obama looked like an actor in a commercial trying to sell insurance,were the pitch is something for free.this is how he is trying to deceive people, but it is not resonating,people who are not the liberal faithful are not going to swallow this nonsense.
