We The People, Really?

We can all agree that healthcare reform is needed, but what happened Sunday, and in the weeks leading up to it, was not the solution.

Democrat members of Congress sided with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Barack Obama over the will of the people. Michigan’s own Democrat Congressional delegation—including Gary Peters, Mark Schauer, John Dingell, John Conyers, Dale Kildee, Carolyn Kilpatrick, Sander Levin and even Bart Stupak—gave in to the pressures of back room deals, steals, promises and turned their backs on the Michigan families they represent.

Because of their vote, Michigan families will no longer be free to make personal decisions about their own healthcare. They will be forced to pick from government approved packages that will be over-seen by 17,000 new IRS agents -- packages Congress decided were not good enough for them.

Because of their vote, for the first time in decades, taxpayers will be asked to fund abortions on demand, including late and partial birth abortions – statistics show this will increase the number of babies killed every year by 40,000.

Because of their vote, our children and grandchildren will be on the hook for the massive deficit the Democrats placed upon them.
Because of their vote, people that are in the their 20’s and 30’s that opt out of health insurance because they rarely use it, will be forced to buy it of face stiff fines.
Those of you out there that supported this bill, did you actually know what was in it? Nancy Pelosi didn’t know and she is the Speaker of the House yet she hadn’t read the bill and had no clue what was in it stating publically “We’ll have to pass it to see what’s in it”
The attitude of personal responsibility has been replaced with “I don’t care who pays for it” so long as I get FREE health care.

Free -- Well we’ll see just how free it is when everything we buy has a huge new price tag, when 700,000 more of us are out of work - when banks stop giving interest on savings accounts – and when doctors start leaving their practices and we have to wait for 3-4 months for cancer surgery like they do in Great Brittan and Canada.

How long will you wait to get involved? How much are you willing to give up?

  1. I agree with you on this,all Americans should have health care equal to that provided to Congress and paid for with same funds.

    Employer's should have health that is, at the very least,as good as that provided to their employees.
