    Hwang said the trend indicates consumers are taking on the personal responsibility of their own health care, realizing it costs more if they are unhealthy.

    And that's the idea behind health care reform, Conner said. Giving people the opportunity to determine how money is spent on their behalf is intended to help change their attitude about health care in general.

    NOOOOOOOOO! We can't have this personal responsibility that republicans pitched 20 years ago and now hate because someone else implemented it...

    I have what many call a Cadillac health plan. I chose my employer and stayed with him for 38 years to protect my family and me. At age 39, I had open heart surgery and an Aortic valve and ascending artery installed. I sound like Captain Hook's Crock. Afterwards there have been serious challenges for my family and me. I would have been denied coverage after 40. The insurance companies of the past have their own Death Panels. Most recently I had a heart 'procedure' called Ablation. The procedure and one night stay in the hospital was billed for $69,000. That did not include the doctors. Can your finances cover that, or are you headed to the streets. If everyone is covered, then simple sickness will not be handled in a hospital emergency room where I picked most of the cost.
    Try it for a few years and if it is not effective repeal it or go to a Single Payer System. I believe the Republicans know it will be popular and this is their only chance to deny Americans Life, Liberty and Happiness.
