I know common dictates that we don’t discuss religion or politics. But I’m not one who believe in common wisdom. There is a conspiracy going on to keep us from talking about health care reform and if we do we‘re to take ideological stances and make no concessions. But if you allow yourself to be completely objective it’s impossible to deny that health care in America is a problem. As someone who works for an insurance company and pretty decent health care let me tell you there is a problem. I take the calls where someone with one hundred thousand dollars in claims is denied benefit because of a preexisting condition. I also see the claims where the insurance company pay in excess of one hundred thousand dollars for one hospital stay. What I know is that politicians count on us been uniformed and uneducated about the issues because it makes it easier for them to win elections. If everyone of us took the time to be informed and not react to what pundits are telling us to the politician’s job will be harder because we’d have the facts on our side. So don’t do it, don’t let them count on you not paying attention to the facts. Be informed, take a stand and see what a difference that will make.

    • I’m so scared when I read the news like i heard today in which Lieberman says we don’t have to worry about healthcare for the uninsured until the recession is over.  Is he saying that it’s okay for the uninsured to be saddled with hundreds of thousands of dollars in debts should they become seriously ill?  I am unemployed and the COBRA payment is over $800 a month for me and my daughter!  We need health care for all and we need it now!  It seems to be fine to spend billions upon billions in Iraq, but we can’t take care of our people at home.

    • I dont take a stand on any political issues.
      I am against the war. I am pro-life and pro health care.
      I am too poor to be paying finance charges on my visa. I cant afford the interest payment on my home. I cant afford any of these but there it is.
      Money that goes to what?  nothing. But some rich guys Yacht. I feel like I am being robbed 1600 dollars a month. That is the amount of my bill payments that go to nothing. So when I think about the taxes I pay I get frustrated because if the government put caps on banking and lending laws then we citizens could pay for proper healthcare, insurance and even a decent vacation giving back to our communities.

    • I just read the Liberman story and thought that was a joke. We need healthcare reform now more than ever. This is crazy.

    • My husband and I are not poor and we‘re not rich. However, we could no longer afford to carry our health insurance as two self-employed people ($1,600 a month).

      We rarely go to the doc or get ill, but KNOW the importance of having health insurance for the unforeseen potential  of a catastrophic illness or accident, I offer the following.

      Things DO have to change!
