an interesting and historic week it has been in American
is amazing when you have been on this earth for almost
½ a century and history becomes not something you read
about in a book (as you did when you were growing up),
but things that you witness and watch evolve!!!
This week our first African-American President
Barack Obama did something many previous Presidents and
Administrations has supposedly tried to do for many,
many years. He
signed into Law the Health Care Reform Bill!
This was one of his main campaign promises to the
American people, and this is part of the change that the
large number of Americans who voted for him wanted to
course, it’s not everything that many expected it to
be, but it is a start in the right direction unlike the
empty promises that are usually associated with many
This time we have witness a campaign promise come
made me smile when I heard President Obama say “This
is what change looks like”.
I have seen the young such as 11-year-old
Marcelas Owens lobby for this Health Reform, and I have
seen others such as the “Right Wing” wackos
and “Right Wing” media officials rally
against it. I
have even heard about an African-American Tea Party
Leader – Mr. Nigel Coleman from Danville VA
complaining and speaking out against it.
(This was surprising because I didn’t even
know there were any African-Americans involved in the
Tea Party movement. It’s actually nice to see that this whole movement isn’t
the work of the KKK or some hateful, extremist or racist
Americans whose party lost an election expressing their
IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS!!!
me though, what’s with all this fighting, the
confusion, violence to the Democratic Congress members
who voted for this Bill, and just the pure hatefulness?
You would think good health is what everyone
strives for, and with the high percentage of voters that
voted for President Obama this would not be taking
place; President Obama said “the Government is for
the people by the people” LOL!
In my opinion, obviously the people spoke on
still wonder why so many are angry and are
whole-heartedly fighting against this important thing.
Mind you, I believe the angry ones are a small
group of people, but clearly it’s a group with a loud
though, I think a lot of it is instigated by “Right
Wing” Conservative Talk Show Hosts such as: Rush
Limbaugh, Shawn Hannity, Glen Beck, and oh let me not
forget Sara Palin, and others across the country who
make millions of dollars a year to preach conservatism
to their audiences across America.
BUT NOW IT HAS GONE TOO FAR, IT’S TURNED INTO
is difficult for me to believe these Conservative Talk
Show hosts and others across the country are unaware of
the harm they are doing. Sometimes I am shocked by what comes out of their mouths
while they are on the airways.
I truly believe what is being said are acts of
treason, and a threat to a sitting US President.
(We must also remember we are in the middle of
two wars). It
seems to me they are only saying these things because
our President is African-American, because I have never
heard anyone say such hateful and derogatory things
about any President who has been in office for little
over a year. What
kind of world is it when you can get on a National Radio
Show and call the President of the United States
“ a gangster”; “a con man”; “a
shyster”; “a communist”; “a socialist”; “a
liar”; “an illegal alien”, and the list goes
on…and on…and on.
This is atrocious, and is not how any American
who is supposed to be patriotic address the sitting
President of the United States of America!
I strongly feel it should be looked at as an act
of terrorism towards the United States of America, and
they all should be arrested and sent to Guantanamo Bay
(Cuba) with the rest of the terrorists who they hate so
are doing the same thing as these so-called terrorists (trying
to tear down America, but in their case they are tearing
down the President of the United States of America,)
who inherited every problem that he is dealing with
currently from the last President and the Presidents
do not agree with this health care reform bill as it
stands NOW, it truly sounds like the plan that Hillary
Clinton presented during the debates, and I remember
when she was asked to address this issue during the
debates she somehow “wiggled” her way out of
answering the question (directly) like she is so well
known to do. Maybe
this is the reason why she didn’t win the election,
and Barack Obama did.
Maybe too, this is the reason a lot of Americans
have a problem with this health care reform.
biggest problem with the current plan is the fact that
every American needs to purchase health care insurance
or they will be fined if they don’t.
Yup, in addition to the taxes we already pay, we
MUST now purchase health insurance from a private
insurance company (it’s mandatory).
I’m one of those people who believe in less
Government, and I don’t think the Government should
force anyone to purchase health insurance from private
This is a problem! This only empowers insurance companies and Corporate America!
But then again the Corporations are the ones who are
really running the country anyway…right??????
strongly feel if the government wants to offer all
Americans free health insurance; then this should be
subsidized by the Government!
Don’t you think it would be real cool if our
Government gave us a medical card that would entitle us
to medical coverage (which would be paid for by the
government) NO COST TO US…Cool…right? LOL
recall during the debates President Obama’s plan was
to offer all Americans who didn’t have insurance the
same insurance plan that the members of congress
currently have, and this was a good idea, but somehow
from my understanding of this bill, (which I really
haven’t read) it sounds like this is not the case, and
we are back at Hillary Clinton's plan.
We must remember the people didn’t vote for Hillary
Clinton, they voted for Barack Obama.
it seems like we are stuck with this plan now, perhaps
in the long run it will be better for those who need
health care in this country and who don’t have
I guess the best thing to do is deal with it and move on
to the next set of inherited problems like (1) ending
these two wars; (2) building the economy back up; (3)
uplifting our schools and education system; (4)
rebuilding the infrastructure in America; (5) finding
new sources of green energy; and (6) bringing the jobs
back to America; and (7) putting Americans back to work.
know what would be great! Since the government is
forcing people to do things, maybe we could have the
Government force everyone to join our new social network
Now this would be a perfect plan!!!!

regarding this important health care topic, educate me
on the health care reform bill, and let me know if
indeed it is a good thing or what????? E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
