I still don't know where this will leave those of us who only do individual health. I am assuming we are out of work once the state exchanges are set up.

It's a joke, our country is bankrupt and we add another government sector, with employees, benefits and pensions. New jobs for 16000 IRS employees added to the payroll to pretax the people to fund this health care reform. How is it reforming health care? It is adding a burden to the unemployed forced to purchase healthcare or be fined. Pay for their children because they will not qualify for the subsidized option because one has to be 400% below the poverty level to qualify. Fix Medicaid, Medicare and Veterans first, expland the income percentage to include more of the lower income. Get a panel of experts from every side to fix what is broken instead of creating another broken government agency. Privatize those entities to run efficently. I am a health insurance agent, there are problems with pre existing, etc... but that can be addressed by offering the Medicaid or something to cover the terminally ill.

This is not a healthcare reform bill it is a healthcare payer reform plan. There is very little in this Bill that will actually remove waste from the system. In fact the mandates will only increase administrative burden and push costs and problems to other parts of the overall system. Unfortunately this bill will only address some of the symptoms of the true problems which exist. All parties in the Health care system need to take ownership acknowleging where there is waste and misuse and take steps in eliminating it.

Disaster for all those who love freedom and autonomy... Ecstasy for those who love government control of every aspect of their lives, loss of medical choices, and crushing debt for their children and grandchildren.

The new Healthcare Reform bill provides for added costs and few benefits to Americans. It is fundamentally another government entitlement program.

The American health care system has made billionaires out of many investors and some of the other rich. The problem is that they have historically paid the least taxes and enjoyed the ability to keep their wealth within a single class society that can afford the so called (premium) health care.

Finally with other countries coming on board with us as leaders of industry... global competition in here and were you to look at (their) health care systems, it would become obvious as to which advanced society is last in place regarding health care and as to why so many Americans are fleeing to Canada simply to keep their families healthy.

Capitalism is a great foundation to live upon if the laborers are still around to keep it going...

I love how everyone is an expert on health care reform. Most of these posts are regurgitated talking points from Fox News. No one REALLY knows the impact on any one sector. It might help, it might not, and it might get worse.

HCR is an intellectually bankrupt piece of legislation written by agenda-driven grocery clerks with no waking clue as to how insurance works for our citizenry. The unintended consequences of this horrendous welfare entitlement will be felt for decades, with little or no advantage to those naieve enough to believe in it, and cataclysmic damage to our seniors. The real referendum on the issue will be Election Day, November 9th, 2010, at which point every last politician with a (D) after his or her name should be summarily fired.

BAD BILL   GROWS GOVERMENT  HURTS OUR COUNTRY AND PEOPLE

It's an overt attempt by federal bureaucrats to eliminate the best health care available in the world and replace it with their own version of what they think best fits in with the rest of the state-supported systems that have bankrupted western economies and aided the moral and spiritual degeneration of the western world. Ask Nadeem Esmai what he thinks aout single payer systems and the Canadian system. My Australian sister when she learned of the Health Care vote called me and said: "Are your politicians bloody stupid or what? Don't they know that socialized medicine has failed and bankrupted Australia, England and Canada in the process. And the Europeans and the Brits join the Canadians and Ozzies and run to the US for major issues. It's a disgrace. They ought to be thrown out!"

Health Care reform totally missed the mark -- it does woefully little to actually reduce the COST of health care.

This bill is going to cause uber inflation, high unemployment and a decrease in care.

Health Care Reform is necessary and essential for all American Citizens. However, the cause of increases in the Medical field is the increase in Pharmaceutical Drugs The tax payers fund the Pharmaceutical's studies and when medications are necessary the cost is inconceivable. The impact of the cost of medications affects patients in Hospitals as well as out-patients.

Govt micro management of insurance and health care industry. Less and Less personal freedom and control of health care issues.

I am definitely for this much needed health care reform and support our President and the other Americans like myself who have pre-existing conditions and have NO INSURANCE! I am angry at Minnesota's governor for opting out...he better not screw up my ability to get AFFORDABLE health care coverage. I cannot afford the Minnesota Comprehensive Plan that currently is available to people with pre-existing conditions. Would Gov. Pawlenty want to pay 20 percent of HIS income for health care coverage and still have a $10,000 deductible. OUTRAGEOUS! My sister has breast cancer; she lost her job after 35 years and now has no coverage...neither does her husband. I have worked all my life and so has my sister and her husband....none of us qualify for the other state-run medical programs...and we can't afford private insurance or the Minnesota Comprehensive Health Plan. I already owe more than $15,000 in medical bills and will not be eligible for Medicare for 10 more years. Any local, state or federal legislator who is against health care reform should have his/her insurance revoked so he/she can walk in the shoes of the "uninsured." How can they help uninsured Americans when they sit smugly at their desks and have their health insurance costs paid for or subsidized by the American people!!!!!

I feel it will very negatively effect my income if not wipe it out completely. I've been in the health ins biz only for 20 years...

Based on everything I know about the bill today, I am really concerned that it will be terrible for the country, terrible for seniors.  It will no doubt help the really poor which is what the bill is intended to do - redistribute the wealth.

I think that it's a travesty and the worst fraud ever perpetrated on the American people. What a shame.

You can't please all the people all the time, and this reform proves it. I only hope that those of us who have been paying for our health insurance premiums first as a necessity instead of a luxury aren't the ones who pays the burden of the debt to make this "reform" possible.

There seems to be so much misinformation floating around it makes it difficult to really know how this will impact my clients and who will be impacted the most. Just figuring out what the law says will take years to unravle, yet we will be expected to follow it.

The insurance reforms are wonderful. Insurance companies have gotten away far too long with denying, canceling and restricting coverage of much needed medical care.

It has inspired me to struggle even harder to become financially free. Only then will I become free of this curropted system of criminals. "Give a man a fish and he will have food for the day. Teach him how to fish and he shall have food forever."
