Perhaps the White House can provide answers to questions that the
members of congress cannot provide because congress hasn't had time to
read the 1000 plus pages of the health care proposals.
Of all of your points, this one bothers me the most. �The people who
will be foisting this program on the rest of us, and won't be affected
by it, don't really know what they're voting for. �"Haven't had the
time" isn't a good excuse, to my mind. �Isn't that *their job?*
Hell no. Their job is to pass legislation - not to READ it.
It's another example of doing something -- anything -- just so they
can say something is being done. �Unfortunately, whether or not the
actions actually solve the problems is consistently irrelevant.
As is the case with Obama's health care reform
Obama's healthcare reform is meeting the same kind of calculated
resistance as Hillary's did when she tried to create a plan to cover
all Americans with some kind of health insurance. The Repugs have
stepped up the rhetoric, fear mongering, and faux civil disobedience
machine to try to thwart his plan, as they would any plan that the
Democrats come up with. All one need to do is turn on FOX News and
watch the lies, distortions, and slam fest. It is a circus of hate and
selfishness. These are the same people who justified the Iraq war that
wasted trillions of dollars and thousands of lives. The past eight
years were a disaster and we now finally have someone in the White
House that has done more good for the people in a few months than Bush
did in his two terms in office. The economy is finally starting to
rebound and a healthy population will only make it stronger.
It is beyond me why anyone would be against making health insurance a
basic right of every human being. Having access to healthcare is not
some frill or luxury that should only be enjoyed by the rich. If we
truly are a country of the people, by the people, and for the people,
we must make sure that ALL the people are able to have adequate
healthcare. You shouldn't have to have the word Senator in front of
your name in order to get quality medical treatment.
Considering that this should have been done many years ago, Obama is
not "rushing" anything. It is long overdue.
