Health care reform is happening in the United States of America in a very big way. I’ve been out and about in the city for most of the weekend aware of the important vote that was going to happen but not really keeping tabs on it. I didn’t find out about it until I was at a bar overhearing people talking about it. I leaned over and asked the couple for confirmation if health care reforms were passed. I support Barack Obama. I subscribe to his dreams and ideas for change. So needless to say, I was thrilled! Minutes go by and things start to settle. Ignore for a second what this means for America, the American Ideal, how this affects our deficit or how this is the “right” thing to do. As one of the uninsured Americans constantly cited in debates, I thought to myself after a glass of Hefeweizen, “What exactly did change and how does it affect me? Will I be insured? How much will this cost me?” I think the cited disapproval numbers (50%-60%) for the health care bill have to do with that very reason. The lack of information or abundance of misinformation has left a sour taste in people’s mouths. Inform yourselves.
