The End Justifies the Means!
“We meet at one of those defining moments – a moment when our nation is at war, our economy is in turmoil, and the American promise has been threatened once more”. Barak Obama, August 28, 2008
Today, I am sad. I find it hard to believe that our Congress (though right now I am disowning them) using any means possible, some of which I personally would think are illegal (I’m not an attorney) but to me, bribery, pay-offs, like job offers, money, special dispensations for certain states, inclusions for some, exclusions for others, in order for a House Member to vote “yes” to pass the Health Care Bill, borders on being Criminal.
The fact that Obama twisted House Members arms and basically told them to take one for the team, if they had to and he would give them a job in the White House if the lost their seats in the mid-term election is incomprehensible. All this was done not for the American people, like Congress claims, because the American people didn’t want it, but it was done to preserve Obama’s Legacy. Wow! If ever there were modern day traitors in DC these guys would belong in the club.
I would like to see changes in Health Care, but not at a cost of $1.6 Trillion dollars, not now when we owe China so much money that they basically own our country. Not now when manufacturing in our country has just about dried up and along with it all the manufacturing jobs. Not now, when jobs are really more important than even Health Care.
I know some will disagree, but please take a moment to think. If you don’t have a job, you cannot afford to pay for Health Care no matter how little it costs (the price of monthly premiums will go up, not down). And if you cannot afford to pay for Health Care then the IRS will find you and fine you. Now, if you don’t have the money for Health Care and you can’t pay your fine then it’s supposed to be “off to jail” where you will receive, food, shelter and “ah, yes” free Health Care. None of this makes sense. We need jobs, which is what the Congress should have been working on for the last 1½ years. Instead they have passed a Health Care Bill that the American people Congress claims to be helping, cannot afford to obey. What’s wrong with this picture? ss
