Hoping you guys can help me out on this. From what I read it means that the payment I can just barely afford now would increase just because I use the health care.....? Am I reading this right?

It's not good at all. Goverment can't even run goverment and they want to run health care. What a joke!!!!

Mac_Gyver, thanks for posting.  Yes, you would have more taxes withheld from your paychecks to cover other people's insurance.  I wouldn't have a problem with this if someone would help ME pay for my meds and insurance, but that will never happen...I'll just be paying for my own and for someone else's.   

Crohn's Disease, Acid Reflux/Gastritis, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Endometriosis, Arthritis, Depression/Anxiety.  Too many meds to list them all.  =)
