Our question: What are your thoughts on President Obama's government mandated healthcare plan?
Aaron Shock: I don't want anyone to go without access to healthcare. The reality is, putting the government in charge of our healthcare and just declaring that everybody's covered is not the solution.
We need to get people more in control of their dollars, give individuals the same deductibility that companies enjoy for their health insurance dollars that they spend, allow for more competition across state lines, pass comprehension tort reform so there's not all these frivolous lawsuits - that will help drive down the cost of lawsuits. But, putting people in charge of their own money is the best determinate of cost controls.
Steve Waterworth: Our old system was not sustainable. We could continue on having millions and millions of people without health insurance. Their only insurance was to go to an emergency room - not a good way of providing health care for people - not efficient. I think this system is going to create a more efficient system, for more people. People that are hurting are going to be able to get care. And it's just, it's a start. Probably not perfect, obviously.
