While President Obama talked health care in Raleigh we spoke to a few patients and a doctor in Jacksonville about the trillion dollar plan.

One local orthopedic surgeon, feels that giving healthcare to all is a great idea, but is worried as to who will have to pay for it, and how that financial impact could affect society.

Dr. Joel McClurg says in recent weeks many of his patients have been asking if their coverage will soon change.

Some patients we spoke to say the plan costs too much, while others say we are spending elsewhere, and why not make healthcare a number one priority.

If passed, one way the president has proposed to pay for his plan by raising taxes on households making more than 250 thousand dollars annually.
