Why do people think because Obama wants heath care to be more affordable, that he is for socialism?

I personally am tired of paying over $10,000. for medical coverage and co-pays because we do not get a more reduced rate, then would be from a larger company, we do recieve a small reduced rate afforded from being with a company though

. If you are paying for the same coverage as other people why are some people having to pay more or less.? Most business' charge flat rates to people, why are insurance companies permitted to charge smaller companies so much more? Individuals even more, for the same thing, sinse they say preexisting conditions do not matter. Those preimium costs are usually passed directly to to the employees that are making far less money then bigger companies, and really are just paying their own health care with a little help from the employer which would be better to get to choose your co-pay amts sinse employees are really footing the bills anyway, not the employer. Its too costly not to have but, between all insurances , leaves no money for anything else!!

    It's not just healthcare. He and his wife have said some people have to give up a piece of the pie so others can do better. He has also proposed the government take over certain businesses and wants to put a cap on how much a ceo can earn. He says people should own the oil companies, people do own the oil companies, they are called shareholders. Obama's policies are socialist, he doesn't like capitalism and wants to take things away from certain people and give it to others. In America you work hard and deserve to have what you earn. It's much more than healthcare and if you paid attention to Obama and his policies you'd realize he's a socialist.

    i have no health insurance cause i cant afford the 440/month that my job offers, and obama will force everyone on a universal health care system yes it sounds good when they say "free medical" but they left out the part where you have a 50% income tax to pay for it so either way your screwed.

    Best thing to do is vote for a guy with low tax/none and then do what coperate america does buy and sell

    do some reserch do the work, be smart creative, and make millions

    to me a college degree is just a specilization in one field of work,

    like a doctor, thats something i wouldnt want to do, now look at a buiness man, who makes more money?

    bill gates seems pretty rich

    Most Americans have been brainwashed by the Insurance Companies to think that the only acceptable healthcare comes from the big Insurance Companies. Most of us do not have the common sense to realize that the medical treatment comes from the DOCTOR, and not the Insurance company. Many times, Insurance Companies refuse to pay doctors for certain services, so the doctor will not provide them.

    With universal healthcare, nobody would be giving anything up. It would just be paid for differently. It's illegal for a doctor to give sub-standard medical treatment, based upon what form of insurance the patient has, or how much money he's going to be paid.

    A doctor cannot be forced to provide a service they will not be paid for. It's time that we force the Industry to pay for the services that aren't being offered because of the Insurance Companies.

    The submit workplace is a private corporation. Police and libraries are controlled with the aid of cities, no longer fed. gov't. training would desire to be county-controlled. part of the bill is socialist, the section the place tax money is used for public well being care. I doubt we can become a Bloc usa with the aid of fact of it, even with the undeniable fact that it truly is actual.

    It is not that he wants health care to be more affordable, it is the plan itself. It is also all of the other entitlement programs that he wants to expand. He would EXPLODE government spending to a level which is unmaintainable. And he wants to give health care across the board to lazy people, drug addicts, illegals, etc. I worked and scrimped to save my money, it is WRONG for anyone to tax the life out of me to pay for those who choose to sit around and/or use drugs, or those who have ABSOLUTELY NO RIGHT TO BE HERE, let alone have medical coverage.
