  • Obama's Health Care Plan
    Moderate
    I cannot believe that the right wing bologna has spread as far as it has. Apparantly, the people are being suckered into it. The main purpose of the plan is so that everyone has coverage. It is not to drag everyone into a public plan. If you have a plan, you keep it. Simple as that. The public plan was for people who do not have health insurance. Simple as that. One can substitute co-ops or whatever for the public plan. These people do not have insurance because they were laid off, because their employers will not supply a plan, they cannot get jobs with a plan, or whatever. It gives them the benefit of health insurance period. The right wing has thrown all sorts of garbage to derail the plan. One is to force FEHB people into the plan. That is totally bogus and a creation of their rabid imaginations. One is to call it socialistic and take away their rights. Again that is totally bogus unless you call social security and medicare bogus. Another is the death panel nonsense. That comes from the right (not mandatory) to discuss death with a doctor of the patient's choice. That is a right and not an obligation forced on the patient. However, the rightists have used the death panel scare tactic to get opposition to the bill. Thanks for letting me express my opinion. Hopefully, the right wing propaganda will be ignored and the truth about the bill will be discussed. Hopefully, the bill will be voted on based on merit instead of bologna.

  • Health care

    There is a great deal of talk about the cost of health care and how are we going to pay for it. Why has no one suggested paying it by adding 5 cent a gal tax on gasoline. Enact the tax the first year and collect a reserve. Then the second year start using the money to help off set the additional cost. This way everyone would be paying there share. As long as the congress does not play games with the money as they have done with the SSA trust fund this should help offset a large part of the cost of health care. Rick M
