    I appreciate your reasoned and calm approach to health care reform. (And remember, the people who are trying to end this debate by shouting loudly and being physically intimidating are not going to vote for you no matter what you do.) Given that cost is a major issue, and that insurance company profits and administrative expenses are major components of that cost, why don’t you join the effort to have the Congressional Budget Office at least cost out a single payer option? Thank you.

    I’ve heard on the news that something above 40% of Americans have doubts about Obama’s health plan. Has Congressman Hill seen any breakdown of what percentage of those think the plan is too radical versus too weak?

    Three questions:

    What is your personal view on the health care system reform bills in committee in the House?

    How much in campaign donations have you received from WellPoint and Golden Rule?

    OpenSecrets.org notes that you accepted a total of $7,250 from Eli Lilly (A $250 individual donation and $7,000 from their PAC). How has this donation effected your views on health care system reform?

  • Ben Montgomery

    In a tough job market, many Hoosiers are either unemployed, or employed in positions that don’t offer adequate health coverage. For such people, buying individual insurance in the private market is prohibitively expensive. Would Congressman Hill please address whether he supports creating an optional public health care plan that would provide basic coverage at an affordable price?

    Dear Congressman Hill:

    With most Americans changing jobs many times over their working lifetime, what justification is their for health insurance to be tied to employment?
