How will US healthcare reform affect you?
The US House of Representatives has narrowly voted to pass a landmark healthcare reform bill. Will you benefit from the reforms?
The bill extends coverage to 32 million more Americans, and marks the biggest change to the US healthcare system in decades. It passed by 219 votes to 212, with no Republican backing.
The Republicans say the measures are unaffordable and represent a government takeover of the health industry. To secure enough support from Democrats, Mr Obama had to give last minute assurances that the bill will not allow federal money for abortion.
What is your reaction to the result? Will you benefit from the healthcare reforms? Do you agree with the Republicans that the bill is unaffordable? Or do you think the reforms should go further?
This debate is now closed. Thank you for your comments.
