Healthcare plan

Personally, I think this article should be read because it talks about the new healthcare program that Obama is proposing. This article also includes the public’s comments. The last sentence asks a question that I have very mixed feelings about. “Should people be forced to buy health insurance?” I don’t think other people should have to pay taxes to help for when those who don’t have insurance get hurt or sick. But, on the other hand I know many people can’t afford insurance and shouldn’t be punished for it, but who’s to say we should have to be relied on to catch other people when they fall? I heard from another source that the tax will be moved healthcare, to gas prices, so basically we are still paying the same taxes. Whether that is true or not, who knows. I don’t want to have to pay for other people’s healthcare, but I don’t want to have to have the set type of insurance we can have, if I can afford to get some type of premium insurance to fit my budget. I think this article is worth reading because the people who commented on it, have some very interesting points that should be heard.
