Sandy - Seriously - that was so good and I agree with every single word said! I just wish that more people could hear this and know the reality of what is about to happen!

Mari said...

Excellent! How can those congressmen continue with this after hearing that?

I agree with everything he said-He was very easy to understand, and clear...
I loved his quote by Abe Lincoln, and the stats of Canada and cancer...Being in Michigan-I have met several people from Canada that come to the US for treatment of diseases like cancer.
WHAT IS CONGRESS THINKING????
Thank you for keeping me in the loop on all this-I am not one to watch the news, but I love the bits I get from you and my husband-I get the main idea...and now I am off to call my senators...Thank you!

He has been bought off by the health industry, in fact so have many senators and congressmen. There are democrats who have been bought off as well. When are people in this country going to wake up and realize that healthcare is not the real problem here, of course everyone is afraid they will lose care, but the real fearful people are the insurance companies who stand to lose millions of dollars. Wow, does anyone realize where all these senators get their money to run for government. Hey if you rub my back, I'll make sure you keep getting your money. We all buy right into the game. I'm not advocating we take the health care bill we have, after all its pretty watered down and probabally will only benefit private insurance companies. The reality is many will die waiting for real reform, and many will be denied coverage while we listen to these people whom are just padding their pockets all the while recieving excellent healthcare and pay on our dollar. We need to look at the lobbying in this country and demand campaign reform. A lot of our politians are no longer looking out for us but for the money that got them into office. Be wary of media propaganda, and lets start looking at facts. By the way out of all the progressive countries in the world, we have the smallest small buisness index. Mainly our healthcare costs are to blame. Funny thing is, I thought that small buisness was the backbone of America. But it seems corporate is somehow better, why? So they can ship our jobs oversees and maintain offshore bank accounts. Oh yeah they love your everyday Americans. Right? Americans need to wake up, our country has been going down the toilet for a long time, we just looked the other way. We sold out our government to the rich lobbyists and corporations a long time ago. This is the real problem with government. There is a lot of phony stuff out there, and I'm not advocating that you agree with one side or the other. What I find irritating is that people are not farily looking at situations, its like we have forgotten we are Americans. When Bush was in office, I didn't see many republicans worried about spending or the government increasing 30% but now that their party isn't in office, oh my gosh, they care now. Well that matters, we need to look at people not party or religion. This is about running a country not personal beliefs or who we like. I'm critical of even people I vote for, I want the best for America in general, and I feel everyone in America should look at each person for the job they do and what their motivations (money) are. Lets stop buying into their game and get the real facts. Lets work together instead acting like the childish politians. Frankly its embarrasing to watch for me. They act like ill mannered little kids. We everday Americans should be able to act better, and stand above, become knowledgeable about their motivations, bills and so on.

Dear Anonymous,
I totally disagree with you. But, I will keep your comment even though I think it is "chicken" and "cowardly" to use anonymous.

Why is that if anyone disagrees with someone they say they were {bought} off?

It doesn't take much to look at Italy, France, Canada and other socialized medicine to realize it DOES NOT WORK!

Oh..by the way..it is about religion, moral values and the core of our Constitution.

I do read all sides..I don't always agree with ONE side...

Thank you for commenting!
Just wish you would put a Name to your thoughts!!!

Oh my word!!

I am sorry but I could not read that rambling much longer .. I had to stop!

Health Care is a business, of coarse they want it to stay the same ... so they stay afloate. What are you going to do when it takes a big crap and there are no other options than the government option?

Being from Michigan and having a relative who runs a hospital (more like 7) They see first hand how Canada's health care fails, because anyone with money runs to the US and pays cash for services!!

Do you know that the Canadian Government is having issues with the US Government over the Detroit boarder... because they use Detroit hospitals for emergency care since they do not have enough money for hospitals that can handle cardiac emergencies right across the boarder. they are mad that since 9/11 we search ambulances. Well people are dying because they count on the US's policy that if you come into a hospital you are treated ...

YOU FOOL we already have socialized health care. NO HOSPITAL can turn away an emergency. It is a law.

What people want is everything handed to them on a silver platter! perfection with out work!!

My husband lost his great job. The last month he was at work he made 24k. We know that will be very hard to replace. we are paying 1k a month in Cobra. But when the rubber hits the road, if he has to take less, do more, do something he does not want to do for health benefits and work HE WILL....

He is a driven man who grew up as a farmer's son in the middle of Ohio. He has made it!! What drive would he have had to "make it" if everything was just given to him?

The best people and innovation come from those in the worst circumstances.

THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD NOT BE SOLVING THIS PROBLEM .. the PEOPLE should.....

By the way, I do not want to hear one more word about Starbucks being great after there horrific commercial making fun of people at town hall meetings ... damn people are "paying off" democraps

Oh "Sandy" you know who I am!
