Editor's Note: President Obama’s health care reform call to action for Democrats sparked varied feedback from Friday’s American Morning audience. Some thought the Republicans should retreat from the argument if they were so confident of the Democrats’ future failure. Others suggested the U.S. look at new sources of revenue to fund the program. A third group was perplexed as to why so many were against “mandated” health insurance, when such programs already exist for car insurance.
- George: If the Republicans are so sure that the Healthcare bill will doom the democrats in November, why are they still fighting the bill?
- Dwayne: All This Squabbling is Over How We Are Going to Pay for It- Health Care-Education- etc. When Really The USA Needs Another Source of REVENUE other that TAXES or HIGH TAXES! Why Not REVENUE from SELLING OIL from Federal Lands? Then, How about DISCOUNTED PRICE for Gas, Natural Gas, Heating Oil & Diesel OIL On Our Way to GREEN SOURCES of ENERGY! That would Be Like Giving Everyone a Raise in UTILITIES ALONE! […]
- Sydney: I don't understand why people are so afraid of "mandated" health insurance. We already have mandated insurance–auto insurance. I can't drive my car without at least collision insurance or I will be fined. Also, what is the difference between the government outlining coverage and the insurance companies outlining what they will cover. Would a Republican please explain these differences to me.
