Meantime the outcome of this health care reform debate -- greatly affect our nation's seniors.
And many of those seniors are very concerned about the possibility.
Of deep cuts to Medicare and Medicaid so we wanted to get their take on today's summit.
Steve Brown is helping us do that he's live at the Sun City community association.
In Huntley Illinois.
-- -- -- They're -- -- yeah one of the most reliable voting blocs in the America in America is.
Is the group sixty and above these folks.
Are the most reliable folks at the polls of their four when they speak they get listen to they've been watching the health care debates point wanna talk to start with -- on butler Alex.
Was it that you wanted to hear from this debate today in did you hear.
I didn't hear what I wanted to hear was some specifics.
On exactly what they really want there's -- days.
On what they're going to be giving us and vague on the costs.
Did tell us what these outrageous cost that can be and frankly as senior citizens we can't afford them prices -- A cost of medical.
Insurance will have to go up with all the proposals that they are proposing on the president's.
Let's let's talk to David Diana -- per second he's a military veteran you agreed to is it do you think it's.
Fundamentally impossible to to do health care in this kind of broad fashion and be able to do it cheaper over the long haul.
I think that I agree in -- you just that I agree with it you cannot do it and I overall single bill like this.
We still need to they have incremental improvements such that individual responsibility and taking care of themselves is still emphasize so people can.
Try their best to be more responsible.
And -- encouraging more charitable -- So they talked about things like.
No preexisting condition bands.
I know -- of benefits that sort of thing you debt seems to have.
Unilateral kind of support but that's what's considered you know small or incremental kind of change.
Absolutely and I think if they look at it from the approach of looking into each individual contributor.
Each this is stand on its own.
-- album balancing for -- -- mean would you be more receptive if they were smaller pieces of -- at a time definitely it and I really do think they should start with the waste in the fraud like they spoke of earlier this morning.
Get those costs down by eliminating waste and fraud and then work on each part of the bill.
Piece by piece don't jammed this monster down -- throat like they're trying to do now one of the foxes that.
If they don't do it in if they trying to piece by piece because elections come around every two here's.
That they'll never really addressed the entire year problem -- the entire set of problems at that health care faces.
Are they thinking about us or are they thinking about getting reelected.
That's the basic question.
That they're really thinking about the American people they'll do what's right and what they're trying right now it's not right.
A sampling of some opinion here -- -- city in Huntley Illinois you're right I can the folks at our seniors are going to be heavily impacted by whatever the decision is back here I see brown thank you so much as we watch President Obama.
