Some wondered after it was revealed that almost every terrorist who attacked the united states on 9-11 was from an oil exporting country why the us did not move heaven and earth to get off of foreign oil. Why did we insist on paying terrorists to kill us? Why did we become more slavish to foreigners and their oil? Why did we keep sending trillions of dollars out of the country?
Before we get into Washington politics, a quick word has to be raised about this election. The decision of voters to put Scott Brown into office is so full of irony that it is almost too much to believe. Brown was voted into the senate seat vacated when Ted Kennedy died of cancer. Kennedy, of course, was a long serving Democrat who was a huge proponent of health care reform. Unless Brown takes a left turn in his political beliefs, his election will effectively keep the Democrats from reforming health care on a partisan basis. Throw in the fact that Brown considers himself a family values man, but posed naked in Cosmopolitan and you just have to shake your head!
Either Obama is right and he can truly cut 0 billion of waste, fraud and abuse out of the Medicare budget or Medicare dependent seniors must die when 0 billion is cut from muscle and bone because there really wasn’t that much fat.
America has been invaded from Mexico. We have turned a blind eye to these people coming, for over 20 years. They have infiltrated America and we chose to not see it happen, until it was too late. We are losing the English language. We are losing our identities as Americans. We let this happen. We wanted to stop working so hard and live the easy life, by letting them do the hard work. That is the truth of the situation.
All we’re trying to do is to make sure that those decisions that are being made in the private marketplace aren’t discriminating against people because they’re already sick; that they are making sure that people get a good deal from the health care dollars that they are spending.
By 1975, I was working for a hospital that provided its employees with a generous insurance plan. As employees, we paid very little into that plan, and when I gave birth in 1981, I paid nothing for the hospital bill or for the doctor bill. The insurance paid for everything. I felt blessed and lucky.
If the money was a bribe, then i have some other cogent advice for us all: Bend over, stick head between legs, and kiss your anatomy goodbye, for all is lost.
