We are now in a fight over health care reform. An easy way to decide this issue is to look at who is fighting this issue. The big opponents are the American Medical Association, insurance giants and drug companies. They are afraid that change would derail their gravy trains.
Do you think these big three are trying to look after you? If so, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I would like to sell you cheap. Why do you think these big three are covering their charges? Could it be they are afraid this health plan would hurt them even more? These big three opponents are spending millions on ads to confuse you to try to stop this reform plan. Please don't let them deceive you! In order to stop the unfair influence these wealthy special interest groups have over Congress, we must limit the amount of money they can spend on political issues. A good start would be to impose term limits on Congress, so they wouldn't be as able to control our elected representatives. Until we do, it will be hard to have change.
If we have trillions of dollars to throw away in space, we can afford a national healthcare plan. Why weren't the Republicans complaining about the trillions of dollars that are being wasted in Bush's wars, the tax cuts for the wealthy and removing taxes on large estates, which are costing tax payers and putting the government in debt. Our Congress needs to get its priorities in order, and health care reform needs to be high on its list. The reason that social security is going broke is because it is being used for other things than its intended purpose. We need to shore it up by raising the cap on its withholding.
