First, mandatory health care or the Federal Government requiring employers and individuals to purchase a health care plan or pay a fine is a deal breaker as well as a job and business killer.

Second, the public option is also a deal killer for it would lead over time to a single payer or medicare for all.

Single payer would give the government a monopoly over health care that the majority of working Americans do not want nor will pay for.

Any politician of either political party that would support a health care reform bill that contain these provision will be targeted for defeat in the next election.

Without the support of small business and the self-employed, President Obama can forget about health care reform and a recovery that creates jobs.

The health care reform compromise is a health care bill that addresses 1) affordability, 2) portability, and 3) people covered by health care insurance and 4) ability to pay for non-catastrophic health care.

In order to get the cost of a health care plan to a price the young and low income person could afford you must have a very high deductible catastrophic plan.

In order to have portability the health plan should be one an individual can purchase for himself and immediate family. The individual  insurance plan would not be tied to the current employer or be a group plan.

In order to get the highest number of people covered there must be a tax incentive at least equal to that an employer has in offering group health care insurance. Insurance premiums paid by an individual would have to be tax deductible.

In order to be able to pay for non-catastrophic care, health care saving accounts need to have higher annual contributions amounts.

Any health care reform bill that does not address unnecessary testing or defensive medicine as a result of frivilous law suits is not serious health care reform.

Read the bill. When an employee leaves or a new one is hired you have to opt of the public option. This kills small business. http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1703423/can_we_put_the_brakes_on_this_slide.html

As long as the public option is included in the bill, the bill deserves to be defeated and will be.

This is a direct threat to the American people’s consumer sovereignity.

Medicare and Medicaid are going broke and Obama health care reform with a public option would only make it worse and go broke faster.

The Federal Government does not pay its bill now ask any doctor or hospital about the problems with Medicare reimbursement.
