Universal Health Care Program

"You can avoid reality if you choose to do so,
but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."
~Ayn Rand
The question was asked recently, to Obama on an ABC Special on Health Care, "Mr. President, will you and your family give up your current healthcare program and join the new "Universal Health Care Program that the rest of us will be on?" Obama ignored the question. He never answered it.

A number of senators were asked the same question and their response was always, "I'm thinking about it." It was also announced, on the news, that the Kennedy Health Care Bill has been worded so that Congress will be EXEMPT! So, if it's not good enough for our President and Congress to want for their families, it's still okay for the rest of us?!

I have listened to CNN, FOX News, MSNBC (thank you, God, for a husband that enjoys staying on top of the news) and I am concerned, very concerned, with this health care package being discussed and pushed past us. I remember my parents traveling in Canada and hearing Daddy talk of the problems they had/have with their health care and that he prayed America would never, ever walk that road. Now the leaders of this country want to put us on that same path.

What can we do? We are a Grassroots country and yes, what you say and what you do matters. If you do nothing more than Google and research what I have just written, if you do nothing more than pray that Obama's plan will NOT become law, you are still doing something. Call, email, write your leaders. Finding the information is as easy as getting on a Search machine. I've found a couple of sites that will go a bit more into the little that I have brought to you this morning. Click on one of the cartoons to be directed there.

And again, pray. Pray unceasingly for America. There is still so much good here, but it is ultimately up to us to keep it that way. And yes, we have to stay on top of the government we put into office.

I know, I know this is a bit serious for a blog but it was/is important to me and I wanted to put it out there. I will be interested to see how you feel ~

This is very scarey. I am praying about this - and going to start calling some members of congress to voice my concerns.

Nancy - sorry for the dup - the first time I posted - I could not tell if it worked.

Hope you had a great weekend.

This really scares me, too. I sat in a waiting room recently with a lady from Canada. She told me people die in Canada because they have to be placed on waiting lists for urgent care. Very frightening. Also, when the people proposing the plan refuse to use the same healthcare system, that really raises red flags. If this passes, ALL politicians should have to use the same system we do....I bet if this were the case, they wouldn't feel the same way about passing it. Thank you for sharing this.

The President never made any such statement about refusing to be covered under the same plan as everyone else, and there is no exemption in proposed legislation that exempts Congress or any other federal employees, including the President from any part of the new legislation.

You can't cite any part of the law exempting Congress or the President, and you can't cite any transcript where the president said the words you claim he said. Why? Because he never said them.

To Anonymous, I never said the President made a statement refusing his healthcare program for his family ~ he never answered the question. He, and other members of Congress, have avoided answering the question each time they have been asked. But you are right in your thinking, I am not a fan of our current President.
