The current frantic attempt to pass health care is a blessing in disguise. It has caused non political people to examine how the government has grown out of control and threatening the American way of life and liberty. Recent polls indicate an overwhelming majority opposing the current proposed health care bill. It is convoluted and is taking on a life of its own. No one knows how it will affect future health care, or what it will cost. I know one thing for sure, it will energize a lot of people to take action, and it will be at the polls. Politicians need to be aware; we have a constitution and we no longer live in England and we don’t want to become France.
I really don’t think any of our congressmen are aware of the negative talk and anger on the street. Anger stirs emotion and promotes a passion that will bring us to the polls and send a few congressmen home. I have never considered myself an activist, but at this time I’m willing and able to fight this with everything on the line; even if I have to get on a plane to D.C. and march in protest (Senator Nelson is a little closer, so maybe I will pay him a visit.) Freedom is not free and there are still a few red blooded Americans willing to fight for our freedom from a tyrannical government.
On November 30, 2009 Senator Bill Nelson had this to say to the president;
“…opinions I heard were from the people who are just reeling in agony because they are in the middle of some medical procedure such as chemotherapy and suddenly they get a notice from their insurance company that they are canceled or they are desperate to get health insurance coverage and have been terminated from their job where they had it, and then an insurance company tells them they will not insure them because they have a preexisting condition.” Get the scoop at the library of congress
I think he has added one more reason to not bother getting a job, and he is definitely not reading my emails—or our constitution, I might add.
