This Health care Bill is the dumbest item (next to the Cap & Trade Bill) that any President & Congress ion the history of our country has ever come up with. "Don't pass this bill!"

Read the text of HR 1495. This is not the Obamacare bill.

Wow, you guys need to read this bill before you comment. This is not Obama's bill! This is a bill introduced by Ron Paul that is less than 2 pages long. Simple and effective. Please read before you comment.

Pam & Gerard, obviously you have not read the bill. This bill is free-market reform of our health care system by Ron Paul, who is a DOCTOR!

HR 3200 sponsored by Ted Kennedy is the bill that is 1018 pages long and is the bill which should not be passed.

What goes for our politicians, goes the same for we the people, READ THE BILL!!!!!!

As corrupt as all of our Politicians are - you have to be sceptical of anything they push for ESPECIALLY THIS HARD!!! Yet another step towards complete Socialism. First - Social Security, Medicare, Food Stamps, Welfare.

This is not the bill supporting SOCIALISM.


This bill is to allow Health Savings Accounts, so YOU can decide how to spend YOUR health care dollars privately.

I think that this Ron Paul bill allows a tax deduction on health care costs, bills and allows a reimbursement on unused flex account dollars on the amount of $500 or to rollover the amount to the next year. Great Bill! PASS IT!!!

This is a great bill! Now if we can only get another bill to remove more of the government's CURRENT involvement in health care.

For crying out loud, folks, READ THE BILL! This is Ron Paul's bill, not Obamacare.

good bill

good bill. Simple, direct. The less government involvement we have, the cheaper health care will be.

Tax cuts and deductions are the simplest and most cost effective way to combat this issue.

This is an amendment therefore; we need to understand the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 before we make a decision. This amendment is only part of the changes being proposed.

This bill is flaming brilliant. I'm writing my Congresswoman to support this.

Where is the payments to special interests? Where is the increase for executive power? Where are the payoffs to poor voters in exchange for their votes?

There aren't any. This will reduce the cost of healthcare and not burden the next generation. It will never pass or even make it to the floor.

I called my congressman and told him to support HR1495 But, I suppose he wont.. He is a democrat supporting ObamaCare.. So He won't support a 100% tax credit for health care.. after all that could bankrupt the government and not the people.

Oh yeah, people should actually read this bill before they comment. I should only expect so little aptitude from the public, and that is truly sad. Had they read the bill(it is what two pages?) they would realize how great his plan actually is!

Too little... too late, I'm afraid. We could all stand to do some praying... else get your gun cleaned up for the revolution is going to begin before long.

People seems to be confusing this bill with the one we're hearing about in the news. This is not that bill. This is Ron Paul's bill on the RIGHT way to reform health care. Please read people. Read. Read. Read. Read.

this is going to put a huge burden on our senior population as well as the baby boomers who are coming of retirement age....why take money away from medicare...let's fix it, not break it!
