"The Best Gift"......

Saturday, December 19, 2009

During this holiday season, while we are all busy with our families, our government is busy too. Obama & the Democrats are swiftly & very quietly trying to push through their "government healthcare plan"..... hoping to get a bill passed before the politicians take off for their winter break.

I say "swiftly" because very few of these elected officials have ever even read this 2000 page program?...yet they desperately want to get this bill passed before the citizens of this country realize what is happening!..a bill that they will drastically effect us all, but not one of them will ever participate in?.....

And I say "silently" since these very same politicians, including President Obama "promised" to have "televised hearings" so all of us citizens could choose to watch so we would supposedly be informed. What happened there?!.....

In my opinion, our health care system is not perfect, but is certainly superior to any healthcare program anywhere else in the world. The Democrats & Obama would have you thinking it was the worst system ever created!.... & the only way we could improve it is to have it government run!...Are they serious? ...If that is the case, then why do sick people from all over this world flock to America to be treated, when their own country's socialized health systems do not meet their needs?

This very well could be the most serious issue facing this country!...Wake up people!!....It certainly will effect all of us adults, but the citizens who will truly be effected are the children of this country. What are we doing to them?...& to their future?......

The photo above is of my grandson, Andrew. I can only imagine how passing this "government health care bill" could change his life.....I read statistics the other day of the life expectancy of cancer survivors in countries with socialized medicine versus the U.S.....the U.S. was much higher, just as it was with many other life threatened diseases. If this bill passes will our grandchildren have shorter lives because of what we allowed our government to push through "swiftly & silently"??.....

I am asking each of you to take a few minutes between wrapping your gifts & baking cookies, to really think about what we could be doing to the future generations of this great country....to the "Andrew's" in your lives.....Maybe the "best gift" would be speaking up, contacting your representatives & voicing your opinion before it is too late!.....Afterall,... our children & grandchildren deserve the "gift of exceptional healthcare" now & in the future....a system they are free to choose, not one decided for them by our government......

Very well said! I am sick over what they are doing and they are not listening to the Amercian people. They have the 60 votes but I hope that they will not get it passed.

So true and thanks for posting this.

Washington is so far removed from the "poor" people in this world. They have no idea what they are talking about.

Then to tell the Nebraska state that they won't have to pay anything for life if they change their vote should be against the law.

Isn't that buying a vote?

Heidi, I totally agree with your post! I just wish Washington would listen to the American People for a change!!

I agree with you. When this healthcare bill kicks in 4 years from now, Americans will wonder what the ??!@##@ happened to our medical system.

Denial of desperately needed care, waiting months just for a doctor appt. and large clinic type doctors offices. No more going to the same doctor that knows you. Nope, you'll wait months and then be assigned one of 20 or so doctors in a clinic to treat you. You can forget trying to see any specialist.

Please, please, call your Senators and State Representatives and tell them if they vote 'Yes' for this healthcare bill, then you will vote 'No' for their re-election at the voting booth!!

Oh, you're right! As I told your daughter once on a posting on this, if people heard the stories I caption on Canadian news about the health care system in Canada, they'd realize how awful it would be. Lack of doctors, nurses, treatments and surgeries delayed, sometimes to the point of people dying because they didn't get needed tests done. I'm terrified of the implications of this new health care system. Obama is a socialist, no doubt about it.

We wrote and wrote, called and called to no avail. It is now time to become actively involved in the next election. I'm HOPING for a big CHANGE and not the hope and change that was elected a year ago.

I totally agree with your posting and pray every day for this country and worry endlessly for my children and grand children.

This congress will forever more live in infamy!
