Although I am a registered independant, I am on the right for 90% of the issues. I do believe in Obama's public option for health care. People should be able to purchase affordable health care. When I started working my current job in 1985 they offered blue cross master medical at no cost to the employer. In 1990 they dumped blue cross & started charging small premium/copay towards a few different choices of HMO's. I am now paying a little under $600 for a family of 4. This does not include a copay of $20 & $30 for a specialist or $100 for a emergency room visit. I will be 48 in January & I have a two and a three year old child. What happens if I lose my job in the next 15 years? Cobra only lasts for so long and it is very expensive. I will be 64 before my daughter turns 18. I believe that there should be some sort of public option to purchase affordable health care. I am not talking about free health care..... I am talking about affordable health care for you and your family.
