As in the song "Lawyers In Love" we have a land, a nation with too many in high places willing to do anything for money neglecting people, honor and principle but a change is coming. No more falling for the lie of living only individualistic and independent lives leaving us divided and conquerable by powerful special interests but a people, a nation collaborating for the greater common good in various groups all across the nation. A land of people working together to help one another with a vision moreover as Jesus would have us be. Love, Mercy, Forgiveness, Kindness....something about another Land. The change is coming

Americans Support Obama's Healthcare Plan

Look at the polls that ask the specific questions about healthcare reform. These polls show that when it comes down to what is actually in Obama's healthcare plan the American people support it. But don't depend on me, look at the proof here-

The first question in the polls asked whether they supported Obama's healthcare plan or not. Then they go down through the specific questions and are then asked again whether they support the plan. The public comes out supporting Obamacare except for two issues in the poll. They do not support requiring all people to have healthcare but nobody particularly likes that and if Americans had been asked whether they wanted to be required to have auto insurnace they would have responded the same. The other issue, that of imposing a tax on cadillac plans, can be adjusted to raise some of that revenue from taxing those making 250,000 or more a year which is essentially the House version.
Congress has clear support to get this done without making too many major changes in the healthcare bill. You hear the opposing party crying in the background but who should care since they had 8 years and their president to agree on doing something about healthcare but didn't even try. If we break out of listening to the confusing political rhetoric and negativity of the unconcerned about you and focus on the details asking the specific questions in polls soon the vast majority of Americans will say they support passing healthcare reform. The devil has had his run with this one. This time the truth is in the details.

I watched Obama's speech on Health Care, back a while, a barn burner! and no slouch accepting the Nobel prize either, eloquent

but in the end he is just another lawyer, did he actually try for a low-profile meeting with the Dalai Lama? unreal ...

most importantly he blew the best of his eloquence on a secondary issue, this may sound harsh but compared to global climate change, health care is simply not that important (ouch!)

be well, David Wilson.

BWAAAHAHAHAHA David that is funny. Don't forget all the jobs that aren't being created or saved. For some reason this admin and the far left think health care and Cap and Trade are the top things on Americans minds. While the Democrats are playing around(fiddling) with those issues we keep hemeraging jobs and the deficit is distroying any future we may have. Shame on the Democrats for not making JOBS and DEFICIT reduction top priorities right now. Come Nov the Democrats will loose a lot of seat. And don't Forget GW Bush gained seats for the Republicans his first term.

It is not hard to understand why the rest of the industrialized world with it's health insurance assurance is frustrated with healthcare reform in the U.S. but certain moral imperatives have to be met. Obama is doing what he must do now because if the US cannot take care of it's own, it's poor millions without health insurance being the richest nation on earth then it has no moral authority to lead anyone anywhere. The whole deal would have been done long ago if not for the intransigence of so many "bought off by the health industry congressmen" and fear mongering from the rightwing.
The sad truth is that until corporate America takes a hit to it's bottom line or millions of body bags line the U.S. coasts climate change will be a secondary issue and a secondary issue among left leaning issues. Another sad truth is that putting climate change over healthcare, jobs and the economy is a sure way to put out of leadership the only party that cares enough about climate change but then that is politics in America. I guess you notice how the U.S. corporate owned media loves to blow questions in climate change science way out of proportion. Think healthcare reform has been tough?

Good to hear from you.
