WASHINGTON – — The House of Representatives late Saturday approved the most sweeping health care legislation in two generations, advancing President Barack Obama’s campaign to guarantee health coverage to almost all Americans.

The legislation was passed 220-215 shortly after House members added a provision that prohibits federally subsidized insurance plans from offering abortion services.

This will make my doctor happy, but not for long I fear.  This is a sad day for Uncle Sam, the Constitution of the United States and seniors especially.  Too many questions have to be answered.  I have not heard of HOW those who couldn’t afford Health Insurance in the first place can afford it now.  How will the homeless pay for their mandatory health care insurance?  Am I surprised?  I would be surprised if the government actually LISTENED to the people.  But don’t despair, the Senate has yet to vote.  PRAY!

    Good health has been a good vote for our people. We must stand up for a good health issue that brought up for us.

      I do agree with you, Doctor D. The problem is, it needs to be a GOOD health bill. We have to ask ourselves, ‘what will be the result of cutting billions from medicare? What are the ramifications of mandatory health insurance for those who can’t afford it now? Why does this bill call for eliminating high tech screening practices for disease? On another note, how many have actually read the 2,000 page document? As usual, this legislation was put on the A train without adequate scrutiny.

      I agree that we could use an overhaul of the system, but not to go from the kitchen trash can to the city dump.

      Thank you for your comment.
