Are you living without health insurance?
iReporters debate Supreme Court health care ruling
Welcome to the very first head-to-head iReport Debate!
The Supreme Court upheld the entirety Obama’s health care plan in a 5-4 decision on Thursday. We selected two iReporters from both sides of the issue – one who supports Obama’s plan and one who is against it -- to go head-to-head in a debate.
iReporter Egberto Willies, a democrat from Kingwood, Texas, supports Obama’s plan. His wife has lupus and he fears that without this law, she would lose her insurance.
And on the other side is iReporter Mark Ivy from Farmersburg, Indiana. He is disabled and on Medicare, but he opposes the plan. He predicts the law will increase the cost of coverage.
We kicked off the debate with this question: Did the Supreme Court make the right decision?
Watch the video and let us know who you think won today’s debate by leaving a comment below. Or, if you’d like to share your thoughts on the ruling, upload a video or text iReport.
Congrats to Egberto and Mark for being our very first iReport Debaters!
