We still can’t believe the Health Care Bill actually passed. Now if only we could improve the quality and availability of good, outdoor hockey rinks, we’d be happy.

Quite frankly, I voted for Obama, because of his stance on health care. I’m not 100 percent informed about all the ins and outs of the bill that got passed. I only have health insurance because I made myself get it through the state, and if my premium gets any higher, I will be pissed. I pay out of pocket, you know? I would like to see more definite change.

Yes, I’m very happy, even though I already have insurance. I think all Americans should have health care, I mean, people in other countries do, why not us? [Do you think it goes far enough?] Yeah. I think it’s fine. I’m not sure I want a stronger bill. I mean, I get taxed enough already, you know?

I think it’s a good thing. A great thing. I already have insurance, so while it doesn’t directly impact me I’m very happy for the less fortunate. Everyone should have the right to health care. I’m from Canada originally, so anything that gets the American system closer to ours is good by me. It’d be better if the U.S. just adopted a single-payer system like us, but I’m very happy about it.

It’s hard for me to talk about this, I just got back from two months touring with a rock and roll band. Um, I don’t really care much that a bill got passed. Obama isn’t going to like, come down from the sky and give me health, you know? Like he’s not going to come give me hair, or give me a tan. Or make me funny, or something. See this gap? [Yep.] I pulled that tooth out myself, you see what I mean? That’s how I feel about health care bills.
