    Please do it before premiums and deductibles bankrupt my consulting firm. I can't do another year of $1200 premiums only to get a $4000 deductible. All because my wife had one knee replacement.

    Thank God for the few journalists that are starting to challenge the misinformation Obama spews. Obama is a vain, supercilious fool who is like a kid who found a credit card and believes if he runs up a deficit balance to please his cronies he will be more popular. Wake up, he's intent on destroying everything that has made this country great

    If it doesn't pass now, the Senate and Congress will let it fall thru the cracks like everything else. We're doomed.

    And I as a voter and a taxpayer say, "we'll do it when we have a good solution", and not any sooner.

    That's the kind of change I WANT. Listen up.

    Please don't Obama... you are killing this wonderful country. Try to improve Medicare/Medicaid and give the troops better coverage – that is what needs to be done.

    Mr. President, thank you and keep on plugging away. You are scaring those lazy senators and congressmen to death by making them work so hard. This issue should have been settled when Clinton was president, but the opposition finally wore him down. Goodness knows that idiot Bush would never have raised a hand to help anyone who is not rich.

    Good luck and our prayers are with you and the people in America who need this so much.

    Here's a deal, how about bo and the entire federal and all stae government people sign up to the same plan they are proposing for us? I mean imagine the tax dollars we could save. Oh! Also we need to talk about those retirment packages the government has. They have done away with everyone elses so it's only fair right? Talk about divison of a country. Impeach this guy now b4 he bankrupts this country. Then let's get rid of everyone in the gov that votes for his fiscally irresponsible policies.

    Lower costs? To who? To the rich, who put food on the tables of the poor via welfare and high taxes? To the hard-working Americans, who will see taxes rise significantly over the next decade or two to try and bail out this next failed entitlement (Social Security, Medicare, Fannie/Freddie)?

    This will cost everyone more, with the only exception being the unemployed and the illegal immigrants. Not for nothing, but statistically speaking, 100% of the illegal immigrants are criminals (by definition) and 95%+ of the unemployed were once or still are criminals.

    Bravo, Mr. President. Raise the bar (relatively) by knocking the hardworking Americans lower a few pegs. Socialism at its finest.

    Dictator. He will tell us what to do and when to do it. How could America be so stupid to vote for this idiot. I can not believe that he is an American President.
