The President On Health Care

I'm thinking that people really need to see this speech from our President on the current healthcare debate. This is from MSNBC in President Obama's visit to the folks in Montana.

I found it interesting that small businesses will get a tax cut for providing health insurance and the employees can still shop for their own health care insurance. Another intresting point is that 80% of the proposed legislation is already agreed upon in the Congress? Did you know that? I sure as hell didn't. Another factoid if you will, pre existing conditions will no longer be a reason your healthcare provider can cancel your health insurance, or cap it or make you go into bankruptcy over and illness. I'm shocked at the number of people health insurance providers screwed over, or let die for the sake of the almighty dollar. And as President Obama said in this speech, "There but for the grace of God go I".

Check out the speech from MSNBC...

Just and additional thought, Newsweek has a great piece out today on the reality of what is being proposed as healthcare reform. True or False format...

Mat and Sue – nice to see a little fun exchanged!

Sue, I’m going to check out your post. Bet this is the White House letter flashing across the Internet via email. I sent it to all on my list and actually got four copies of it from others. Good deal, Lucille.

Mat, thanks for the Newsweek link – it was great, all four pages of it – good in-depth reporting.

I’ll close with a favorite quote:

“Let truth and falsehood grapple; whoever knew truth put to the worse in a free and open encounter.”

- From Aeropagitica, John Milton’s great plea for a free press.

Mat: LOL!!! Someone commented that you do not own this blog, that Google does.

Well, here's what Google has to say about that. When I left the previous comment, Google gave me this message:

"Your comment has been saved and will be visible after blog owner approval."

And that would be Papamoka!

Sue:

I asked Mat to explain to me what was so funny about “teabagging” as much laughter was floating around his blog. Embarrassed, he sent me a very discreet email and said it was like explaining the birds and bees to his grandmother!

HA-RUMPH! LOL!!!!
