I just want to say. I do NOT understand what the big deal is about this health care bill and the public health option. I don’t mind paying more in taxes if it means having a public health option. I can’t but conclude that it comes to this — the decision-makers in DC have never been in a situation where they do not have health insurance. Because I have, and if the McCoys hadn’t paid my medical bills then I would definitely still be paying them now. I know people who have substantial debt because they don’t/didn’t have health insurance. It sucks, for real!
Seriously. What is the issue here?
