The whole design of our health care system is a problem, and this reform doesn't fix what we need. I haven't had insurance since 1997, and I don't miss it. I went to the doctor only once a year -- so not worth it.

I used to live in Massachusetts, and they passed a similar bill at the state level in 2006. That's part of why I left; I don't appreciate being forced into anything. I hate being told I have to have a doctor, and yet I can't choose the one I want if he's out of my network.

I was employed full-time for many years, so I've paid a lot of money into the health care system through my tax dollars. The whole thing is a mess now, and I think it's unclear what kind of care we'll have under the provisions of this reform.

I wish people had looked at Massachusetts, because not everyone there was happy with the reform. I just don't think people in Congress have listened to the American public, and that's endlessly disappointing.
