I spent more than two hours being transferred back and forth, left confused and without an end result in helping a family member's prescription needs through Medicare/Medicaid.

I thought to myself, if this is what is being proposed to the American people, I don't want it. The government has become a grotesque picture of a jumbo corporation filled with waste and greed. It no longer represents the American people.

The government has proven itself uncapable by its mismanagement of the United States Postal Service, the bailout spending, the economic stimulus, and now Cash for Clunkers. Why should we trust it with our healthcare needs? When each member of Congress and the president along with their families utilize the health care proposed to the American people, then I will consider it, but until then, I don't need the government mismanaging my healthcare needs.
