“Obamacare does say that it will lower the cost of insurance. I do not understand how that is possible, proponents keep saying it will be deficit neutral, but they never actually explain how.” If you get people into the doctor sooner, they can get their medical problems solved early when the solutions are cheaper. Expensive co-pays and deductibles can keep people from seeking medical attention until the situation is dire (like yours).

Sure, that's why we need reform. Obamacare won't help that problem.

My Health Care Story

I'd like to tell you about my recent experience with the health care system.

I am a 24-year old, full time college student who has no job. Because of this I have no health insurance. This really isn't a problem for me, since I usually only get a cold maybe twice a year. But recently I started having bad stomach pain. Long story short, it took about a month to figure out that I had gallstones. Thus, I would say I have a good perspective as one of the uninsured millions, on how well our health care system works here in the USA.

There is one thing seriously missing in all the Health Care Debate that is going on in the USA right now. And that is a serious debate between two major plans. Currently there is only one major plan being talked about, the so called "Obamacare." The Republicans have come up with a few plans of their own, but they have been ignored, and some are too similar to Obamacare to appeal to those of us who oppose Obamacare.

So, I just emailed my congressmen and the President about HR3200. It was easy to do from congress.org. They have a nice form that makes it easy. You just enter your zip code to find your congressmen, and then your address, and then fill out an email form.

Here's what I wrote:
