Rage Against Suburban Zombie-ism

Somehow I don't think people want it.
The post-American health care debate sorta reminds me of that line from A Few Good Men where Tom Cruise demands the truth and Jack Nicholson vehemently responds, "YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!"
Swap the word "truth" with "change" and I believe this is the mindset of some Americans who are anti-health care reform.
As a Canadian who doesn't worry about incurring debt because of medical bills, I'm not even gonna pretend that I know anything about the American health care system - or this new bill that just (barely) passed. Allz I know is that I am extra cautious whenever south of the border. And I'm not talking about Taco Bell!
I don't get the Anti - or I guess they're called Republicans' (*shivers*) standpoint. Are they just opposed because they felt strong armed? Or are they actually concerned about the American people eventually paying for this through increased taxes? <-- Highly doubt that, I think it's the former.
As for the Pro-Dems, since everyone is qualified for health insurance, does that essentially mean that everyone hasta *pay* for it? If so, how much will it cost the poorest of the poor?
I can spend some time online, but I have a feeling that my findings would make me mad. This is already giving me a headache.
