    Many people do not have health insurance because they do not feel they need it. Any one can go to the ER of a hospital and they will get treated insurance or no insurance. Lets get the right Health Care bill passed with no cuts in Medicare or tax increases. Go with the Republican plan.

    Bill does not have all the facts or he would change his mind. It is true that if you go to the emergency room , you will get treated. What Bill did not address is who is paying for the care. There is NO FREE LUNCH !Bill is and so is all those who pay. We pay in increased cost and state taxes. Bill also picks up the hospitalization for the wealthiest corporation, Wall Mart. Their bean counters figured if they work their employees a certain number of hours and pay them a certain rate, then the employees can go to the emergency room for primary care. Thereby eliminating the cost of employee health care. The tax payers of the state can pick it up.The Republicans that Bill promotes also promotes Wall Marts exploitation of the taxpayers.Thanks a lot Bill.I hope you change your mind and Party affiliation soon.I hope you agree the fleasing of us taxpayers has got to stop!
