Q & A

Straight Talk?
Obama’s health care plan will be written by the head of the HC committed that states he doesn’t understand it, will be passed by the Pelosi/Reid Congress that hasn’t read it, signed into law by a president that smokes ciggies, funded by a treasury chief that reneged on his taxes [tax cheat], overseen by a surgeon general that is obese and financed by a country that is nearly broke.  

What could possibly go wrong? Any one out there with an answer?

    • Go Deb! The issues is all that matters. Agree to disagree and get on with the issues that our country is facing.

      I have stated my case so many times on other blogs that my fingers are sore. You all know where I stand. estatic

    • Anonymous....the healthcare industry dictates just that right now.  I need “approval” before receiving tests that are medically necessary.  I need “approval” before I go the hospital.  I can only see these things improving.  

      Im ready for change.  It’s amazing how everybody “knows” without really knowing.  The greatest fear is fear itself.  Alot of people are afraid of change.  

      xoxo

    • Doreen,
      This is no small change we‘re talking about.  If the proposal is accepted the way it is, there is no turning back the clock.  Don’t you suppose we should know everything about it first?  The future of our personal medical care and national debt is something that deserves careful consideration.  It shouldn’t be pushed through for the wrong reasons.  Why should we be expected to blindly accept whatever?  There is a solution that would lead to positive change, but the current admin. continues to think with such a narrow viewpoint that we get nowhere. They need to “reach across the table” as did others before them to come up with a plan that Americans actually like/accept, then it needs to be put on the table and passed already!  I’m sick (no healthcare pun inteded) of all of this unrest.  So many of us DO see that there IS a need for change in our healthcare system.  It appears they (admin) are clinging to what they want and are refusing to settle for anything else. All I can see with the current plan (that nobody seems to be able to explain affectively) is a bunch of red tape in our medical system and sub standard care.  Who will monitor all of this?  Don’t they need to be paid?  Don’t they need jets to fly around the country to “monitor” all of this?  Hotel/food expenses?  We will end up paying for this financially.  Finally, do you really think everyone will be doing what they are SUPPOSED to be doing under the new system?  I do not. Furthermmore, there will be nothing we can do about that.  How many people do you know that don’t do their jobs the way they should?  I bet you can think of a few!

    • roflmao!! Who cares if he smokes. Ever been outside of a hospital and seen how many nurses and doctors smoke!! omg  

      I can tell no one here even knows all that is in the bill, yet comment anyways!  

      Doreen, I am with you. Very well said!!

      For those against it, then talk to your congressmen, get out there and have a real voice instead of just complaining.  

      I have sent my comments to all my states ‘advisors’ FOR IT! Will it make a difference?? Who knows, but at least I really got involved!!!!!

    • I think this word needs to be added to the list you all started

      Chicken Changers!

      All of you are very smart women (I am assuming Anon is a woman) and very real concerns and good comments. But I think the best one is to get involved and contact your reps.

      I believe it’s up to us to make/take a stand with our reps and let them know HOW we expect them to behave and that we also expect them to LISTEN and possibly COMPROMISE.

      If that means writing over and over until we are heard than that is what we need to do. The bickering, name calling and stubborness however is not going to accomplish anything. Is that ultimately what we want?

    • That’s exactly what is needed Vikki...and I do get involved. I write my Congressmen and Senators. I sign petitions all the time in my favor to help voice my opinion on the matters. I listen to the speaches and the interviews and if you go back through all of these posts, I don’t believe I have called anyone a name.

      It’s time we get involved with the issues and excercise our rights as citizens of the United States. I will say that I was pleased to hear him say last night that the bill is still open for discussion. It needs passing, but not in the shape it’s in, in my opinion. There needs to be much more ‘tweaking’ done in order for it to protect us and keep our country safe from further deficit and to make sure we get the care we are entitled to. I am glad it is being held off for awhile. Better than rushing into a plan that we regret and are stuck with. And no, I don’t feel that if it passes, it would be anything the next President could just “undo“...not hardly.
