What is all the hoopla about healthcare reform in the U.S.?

DISCLAIMER: I am not trying to start yet another political debate. I only offer this as a possible way to clear up some of the misunderstandings about the ongoing healthcare issue here in the U.S.

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last few months, you are aware of this important issue. It touches everyone of us in the United States... even the invincible. I ran across this video, and at first, I thought it would be yet another typical conservative rant... and/or Obama Slam. You know the type. It starts at a fever pitch, and continues to escalate until everyone within earshot either glazes over, or goes home. But this one actually made sense to me. Maybe it will to you too. So, I submit this to my fellow AoM community members... especially to those of us who say we don't understand all of the hoopla. (by the way, I don't have a clue who the guy is, or what his party affiliation is. Yes, I could google it, but I really don't care. He is a congressman, and therefore he should have some knowledge about the subject. His message seems clear regardless of who he is, or which way he leans. I'm not however, taking it at face value. I did run it by an associate who claims he has read and understands the 1100 page Obama Healthcare plan--something most of us have NOT likely done. Accordingly the statements and questions raised in this video are legitimate, and for the most part the text is conclusive - as of July 16, 2009)

If an opposing view exists, I'm sure I will hear about it. To the opposition: If you're compelled to challenge this, please do so, in a gentlemanly fashion, and be specific. The last thing we need is more political rhetoric. I think we have all grown tired of it.

Thank you!
