We need to pass the health care bill. Get it through and we can always fine tune it later. If this makes me a socialist or a neo-Bolshevist or whatever they call me on Fox News, then fine. No one should be without health insurance in this country. Personally, I am OK with paying more taxes so my fellow man can have the same benefits I do but I realize not everyone feels that way and that must be taken into consideration. However, I feel healthcare should be a right, not a privilege. We should all be "endowed with unalienable rights, among them are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness…” and medicine or a doctor visit if you just so happen to catch the flu during your pursuit of said happiness. Right now, prisoners are the only ones who are specifically granted the right to health care – which is just insanity. I think that if the Founding Fathers could have foreseen the importance of health insurance, they would have fought for the same standard of treatment to be extended to everyone. Pass it. Get it done. Get it through and we can fine tune it later.

I'm actually shocked that big corporations aren't jumping on the Health Care bandwagon. They would all be able to stop offering health insurance, or contribute less money toward employee health benefits.

Health benefits are what has bankrupted the auto industry.
