What’s Your View in Obama Health Care Vote?

July 13, 2014 by · 22 Comments 

We are few hours away before the results of the Health Care Bill proposed by Obama will finally be released. Who do you expect to win? Is it the Republicans who are against the said Health Care Bill or is it the Democrats who are pro to it?

This is again another mathematical game. Obviously, majority wins. It is widely expected that the results of the Health Care Bill votes will be very close. Looking at the numbers, Democrats need 216 votes to pass it. However, there are about two dozens of them who vowed to vote for a “no”. Together with all 178 Republicans voting for a ‘no”, the votes’ turnout is expected to be extremely close.

Republicans vow to vote for a “No” since for them, this Health Care Bill involves a huge amount of expenses by the US Government that will definitely hamper or slow down US’ recovery against the recent recession.

On the other hand, most Democrats vow to vote for a “Yes” as they believed the passage of this Health Care Bill into law will help a lot of Americans to lower the costs of their health care expenses.

What’s your view in Obama Health Care Bill? If you were one of the leaders in the House, what will be your vote? Do you see Obama signing the passage of this Health Care Bill into law?

    Yes Yes yes yes on health care bill do it to day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. lamom says:

    I would vote yes. Lack of coverage, discrimination against people with pre-existing conditions, like my 7 year old who had cancer at 6, is wrong. Everyone deserves adequate health care coverage, it’s part of the pursuit of happiness we are all guaranteed.

  3. B Phelps says:

    We have read and heard so much about the proposed health care bill and the provision that health care companies cannot deny coverage based on pre-existing conditions BUT . . . I don’t seem to recall seeing or hearing anything about regulating the fees carriers can charge. Is there any provision in the proposed bill to regulate the fees that insurance carriers can charge – like we regulate utilities?

  4. justlooking says:

    I say, America, welcome to the club of modern nations again. You were gone for a while, but now you’re back.

  5. Groetzinger says:

    Yes
    This is a small start to what needs to be done.

  6. Miriam says:

    Re-read the 10th Amendment: If a power is not specifically given to the Federal Government in the Constitution, then this power belongs to the States, or individuals (not to the Federal Government). The health care bill as it stands, with its mandates, etc, is patently unconstitutional (as well as being the wrong way to actually lower health care costs).

    If I were in office, I’d be fighting it tooth and nail – regardless of my political future within whichever party I found myself.

    Everybody including the President is villianizing the insurance companies. Here’s how it really works… the doctors and drug companies are driving health care cost’s nationwide and the insurance carriers are only reacting to billed charges. I’m not denying some insurance companies are saints either, we have get control of the drug companies, put real teeth into tort reform so the doctor’s don’t have to continue unnecessary testing will be a huge improvement. The current Senate bill does not address the real problems and therefore, I’m opposed.

  8. humphrey cassio says:

    ALL INDICATIONS ARE THAT IT IS A VERY POOR BILL, SOME HAS YET TO BE SEEN OR WRITTEN…THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF AMERICANS WANT IT…

    IF IT WERE A GOOD BILL THEN WHY HAS IT BEEN SUBJECT TO SECRECY AND BRIBARY?

    THERE IS SO MUCH THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE NOT BEEN TOLD THAT INVOLVE COST, COVERAGE AND QUALITY OF CARE…

    IF IT’S SUCH A GREAT BILL THEN WHY IS THE CONGRESS NOT INCLUDED…ARE THEY BEING NICE PEOPLE AND TAKING A WORSE HEALTH CARE PACKAGE? YEAH RIGHT…

    WILL THE MONEY COLLECTED BY THE GOVT. FOR 4 YEARS PRIOR TO THE SERVICES BEING AVAILABLE STILL BE THERE? HOW DO THE “TO BE COVERED” GET COVERED FOR THOSE 4 YEARS…

    FOR MOST OF US, THE DEMS ARE SAYING, WE DON’T CARE WHAT YOU WANT!

  9. Sandra Joseph says:

    The devil is in the details. It will not lower premiums. It will not help the middle class. Families of 4 who make over $88,000 will not get a subsidy. They will subsidize those making people. If you don’t purchase health insurance you will have to pay a penalty. Young people will be subsidize the 40 something smokers and obesse. And if you have good health insurance like from NJ you will be taxed. The other poster is correct, the bill does not regulate premuims. What a sham! Socialism at its best.

  10. no faith says:

    I say No. I do not think this will cut cost as my insurance just went Up

  11. shadowman says:

    It’s just another thing the American people don’t want, yet the government will cram down our throats.

  12. Stacey says:

    If this goes through I am going to stop working, since i have kids I will just collect welfare and housing. What is the point of trying to support myself when this will make it impossible for me to afford health care now. It took me twenty years of hard work to move up to a job that offers health insurance and in one swoop they will take that from me. Why because people think they no longer should have to pay their way. The funniest thing is and what most people don’t know is the majority of the uninsured have the means to pay for insurance, they just prefer to spend it in gadgets and homes, things like that. This will hurt people like me, who make very little, the poor who will have medicare like insurance where there will be very few if any Doctors that will accept it, and very sadly the elderly. But we live in a society today where everyone thinks they are entitled to free things and I would bet a years pay that I am right. From speaking to my grandmothers Doctors and asking questions I know that they currently get a small % of what they bill, this is going to cut by over 20%. So basically ask yourself this: If you make $10 per hour and your boss says, sorry I am only paying you $2 per hour would you still work as hard or at all? Why should Doctors do so? They go to school and pay God knows what over many years, if they cannot pay the loans and the costs why would anyone become a Doctor. Every Country that has government type health care has one thing in common, a shortage of Doctors. It is one of the reasons people travel to our country to get treated. The simple solutions are not being used. They could open the state limits and allow competition, they could also extend the state run medical programs to include a higher income, and put some basic rules down to stop these bogus lawsuits that are a daily thing. If they stopped the costs from things like that we would have afforable health coverage. But these real solutions will not give them the control they seek. Now we have the government controlling more than 30% of the economy, this will put them over 50% and this all in the last year. People that are against this are not against covering the needy, we can easily do that, what we are against is Washington making the call when health of others is concerned. It easy to ignore the truth behind it, but wait until they decide to come after the next business. It might be yours that will be run by them, you might be told what you will earn and no more. When that happens, and if we sit and say nothing it likely will once they have so much power. And keep in mind that when you fall into an income category you will be told you must buy insurance or go to jail. The incentives to work hard and take care of your own is being thrown out with this bill. Why bother any more when you are going to be punished for it. You don’t see the House and Congress having to abide by the same rules as us mere mortals, to them we beneath them and this should outrage Americans. If you think health care is expensive now just wait until it is run by the government. All you have to do is look to what they have screwed up in the last decade and know it is not about us, it is about making them rich. Truly disgusting and sad that we have been played against one another instead of uniting and getting what is truly needed and that is affordable health care.

  13. J Thomas says:

    To me, this like amnesty for illegal aliens, is just another way to tie the benefited voter to the party that gave them something for nothing.

  14. Stephen Nicely says:

    Now here is the real truth about not having insurance in this great Nation of ours. Take it from someone who lived through not having health insurnace. My former wife–who was paralyzed from the neck down from a car accident–and I did NOT have health insurance. My wife must have spent months–if not a few years of her life after the accident in hospitals and rehab centers, and we were NEVER without health care.

    Take it from me–we were never without health care in this county. We lived in the state of New Mexico, and even though no insurance company would insure my wife, we were never without health care. Was it adequate–well my wife spent months at some of the best hospitals, and rehab centers in the country, and we never felt “abandoned” by our country. Oh, and by the way, I really hate to mention this but New Mexico is a state in the United States–it surprises me how many Americans think I am talking about the country of Mexico.

    So when they say you can’t get health care, I say we did, and lots of it.

  15. j smith says:

    are you people idiots?????? this health care creap is crap!!!! this government WILL

  16. Brittany says:

    Yes, yes, yes for healthcare reform!

    Stephen Nicely – REALLY? I too have been without healthcare and I felt totally, utterly and completely abandoned by my country! I suffered from gallstones and the diagnostic tests (bloodwork, ultrasounds, MRI’s, HIDA Scans) to determine what was causing my abdominal pain were too expenive to order for someone with no insurance, so guess what? I just lived with it. For over two years. Finally, when I got health insurance I was able to get it taken out, but the damage has been done and I will suffer for the rest of my life. All of my biliary organs are damaged and I suffer recurrent bouts of abdominal pain. Thanks United States of America!

    So take it from someone who didn’t have health insurance, or a hefty bank account to back me up during my health insurance lapse, being uninsured in this country is miserable.

  17. JESSICA SMITH says:

    NO BECAUSE OUR COUNTRY WILL BECOME COMMUNISTIC!! OBAMA IS ONLY TRYING TO GET MORE POWER. HE DOESN’T EVEN HAVE PROOF OF HIS OWN EXISTENCE (BIRTH CERTIFICATE) AND YET PEOPLE ARE TRUSTING HIM TO PAY FOR EVERYONES HEALTH CARE. EVER SINCE HE GOT IN OFFICE, WE ARE 12,600,000,000,000 (TRILLION) IN DEBT!!! PROOF?—- GO TO http://WWW.USDEBTCLOCK.ORG. LOOK AT HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE UNEMPLOYED AND ETC. IT HAS NEVER BEEN THIS BAD.
    OBAMA IS PROBABLY PAYING PEOPLE OR THREATENING THE LOSS OF THEIR JOBS IF THEY DON’T VOTE YES TO THAT STUPID BILL. BY THE WAY, WE WILL NEVER STOP BEING TAXED 95% MORE THAN WE ALREADY ARE IF THIS BILL PASSES, EVEN IF YOU MAKE LESS THAN 200,000 A YEAR YOU WILL STILL BE TAXED. REALLY , EVERY SINGLE THING HE HAS SAID HAS BEEN A GIANT LIE! EVERYTHING!!! WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR CONSTITUTION WHERE EVERYONE’S VOTES ARE COUNTED AS EQUAL? IF OUR VOTES ARE EQUAL THEN WHY DID OBAMA SAY REPUBLICANS ARE NOT ALOUD TO VOTE FOR OR AGAINST THIS BILL. ONLY DEMOCRATS. HE IS SLOWLY ERASING EVERYTHING THE CONSTITUTION STANDS FOR. COME ON AMERICA! WHAT HAPPENED TO FIGHTING TOGETHER FOR WHAT WE BELIEVE IN? WE ARE ALL CREATED EQUAL AND EVEN THOUGH OBAMA IS AGAINST EVERYTHING WE STAND FOR IN HISTORY, WE SHOULD ALL REMEMBER TO STAND TOGETHER FOR OUR RIGHTS! COME ON AMERICA! SUPPORT OUR FOUNDING FATHERS AND THE CONSTITUTION! SUPPORT WHAT OUR TROOPS ARE REALLY FIGHTING FOR! FREEDOM.

  18. Salena C. says:

    If the health care bill is passed it will be one more step toward socialism and the USA being call the USSA, United Socialist States of America. If you do your research you will see that it is a form of population control in disguise much like the health care in the UK is. Rest ashured that the death rate amoung the elderly will go up. Spend as much time with your grand parents as possible if this thing passes. Without a foundation a house can’t stand and neither can a nation. Obama is tearing away this countries foundation and replacing it with a weak, unproven one. When a house has a weak foundation it goes down with the first storm. This nation has withstood storm after storm with it’s strong foundation and is still the most powerful nation in the world, but when the first storm comes with a new weaker foundation this country will not stand.

  19. Amber Johnson says:

    One more step closer to Socialism……..

  20. GetReal says:

    Socialism? Talk to your grand parents while you still can? Apparently, we could stand to spend a little more on our educational system as well. Socialized health care insurance for our elderly (+65) has been in place since 1965. Its called Medicare and operates as a single-payer health care system. It works rather well I might add!

    Stephan Nicely; Firstly, you are welcome! The reason you weren’t without health care in this country is because people like me who carry insurance and pay their medical bills are forced to subsidize the system for those who don’t. I don’t mind helping out. I believe it is everyone’s responsibility to make sure others less fortunate get the care they need. What bothers me is that for each $5 I spend doing so, only $1 goes towards your health care while the other $4 goes to line the pockets of big insurance companies.

    A certain portion of any civilized society must be socialized. It is the responsibility of a civilized society to ensure the societies health as a whole! When a society stops taking care of its less fortunate people, including the sick and aging, then it can no longer be considered civilized.

    BTW, our national debt exceeded $12T BEFORE President Obama took office, not SINCE. You might also want to try reading the Constitution before making reference to what rights it might guarantee.

  21. MattUK says:

    Hi, I don’t live in the USA but have been quite annoyed at the comparisons being made about the health care system in the UK!!! The bill Obama wants to put through bares no resemblance to our NHS system!!! I think unless you’ve lived in the UK and experienced the system 1st hand you should keep quiet!!! Our health care system is one of the best in the world!!! Yes it was introduced by a Labour (socialist) government after the 2nd world war, but it still exists today, more than 50 years later down the line we still have it!!! Why? Because people want it!!! Lots of governments since then have tried to get rid of it but they have failed!! It has its problems yes, but don’t let the Republicans fool you with the spin they spout out of their mouths about us killing old people!!! That’s just rubbish! I think it’s a great system but your new health care system (if passed) will be nothing like the NHS!!! What I think you should be worried about is the rate at which this bill is being pushed through, seems too quick to me. Something as important to the American people as this needs time to be discussed. It seems that there are enough people on this blog who are against reform. They should put it to the vote, its called democracy!!! Good luck to you my American cousins, I hope for you it all turns out ok.

  22. Roger says:

    I firmly agree with GetReal. The keyword is “civilized.” I’m sick of hearing how certain taxpayers would rather their fellow Americans be refused access to a healthcare delivery system already in place, simply because they do not have the means to afford it. Without “social” programs we would have fewer schools, roads, libraries, parks, etc. We must begin thinking of healthcare as being a necessary governmental expense. Is that so difficult? We certainly don’t raise our own private militias to fight wars. Does spending 1/3 of the budget on national security make us a socialist state?
