El Paso - El Pasoans we talked with are split over passage of health care reform:

"Many other countries throughout the world have got health care plans that work efficiently for them and the U.S., as big a country as we are, we're kind of lacking on that already and not everyone can afford it so it's a big plus for the US."

"My problem with it is as everything else having to do with the government...whenever we put the government in charge of anything we always have trouble with it. It alway cost us more. I agree that health care needs to be reformed but this is a bad idea."

"I think it's great because the country really needs this. Obama is doing a great job I think and our health system is not the greatest and we should do something about it so this is good news to me."

The current system isn't working and nothing has been done prior to this to try and remedy it. Everyone pays for lack of medical coverage, especially here in El Paso where indigent care costs are so out of control, that those of us with insurance are penalized with higher insurance premiums and higher costs for insurance companies. Let's hope everyone starts footing some of the bill.

The majority of Obama voters support Obama and the Democratic party in everything they do...Those common sense voters who did not support Obama are against Obama's health care plan.
