    President Obama spent a lot of time talking about government regulations pressing insurance companies, or government health care plans to operate more in the lean. Hospitals, though, charge a lot because they cost a lot to operate. How can we improve health care when providing even fewer financial resources to the facilities responsible for providing it? I'm talking about materials costs, facilities costs, waste costs, the cost of drugs... not to mention that I make a nurse's income and can attest that there is no room to cut the wages given to hospital staff. Even the doctors in many cases end up taking home a nurse's income after malpractice insurance is paid. My next question is, if this government run health care system costs less than private insurance, what incentive is there for anyone to keep private insurance? Private insurance companies could go under... and no one is motivated to pay more when the government offers a free ride.

    Mr. President you have repeatedly assured the American people that we can keep our private health insurance if we want to. This implies a choice. Isn't it a more accurate assessment to say one can only keep their current insurance - because should you loose your job you will no longer be eligable to pick up private health insurance and will be forced to go on the government plan?

    The plan has genetic implications. Why, Mr. President if you are half white do you refer to yourself as a black man?

    Looks like the "screaming meemies" are now going to make their debut in GJ tomorrow. Oh, Joy. Of course the GOP doesn't want change - their corporate sponsors are making billions! The "good old "CSA" (Corporate States of America) - just how ARE you going to fight those greedy, fear-mongerers Barack? We have a non-competitive system most can not afford reliant on cheapening jobs fast disappearing and they like it just fine as it is. Looks we're in for more "Flush Dumbaugh Ditto-Head" dribble to me ("Sounds great, if you don't think it through."). Get out there and yell - makes you all look real swell.

    I have friends and family members who have been charged two and three times for the same services by a very large local hospital. What provisions are in your health care plan that protect people from this type of fraud?

    You keep talking about "my" plan -- where is it and how can we read it. The only plan available right now is the House Plan -- The plan by the House does not resemble anything you have been saying. You have contradicted many items in the House plan. You also have not kept one campaign promise that you made last fall. As an example you said last fall that the middle class would not pay one penny for the health plan -- now you say that they will not pay the Major portion of the plan. You also said several years ago that you wanted only a single provider (Government)health plan, but it would take 5 to 10 years to get there. Now you are saying that you do not want only a single provider health plan. How can we believe anything you say ???
