The House of Representatives is within minutes of having its members vote on the Health Care bill — H.R. 3962. As could be expected, most Republicans see the bill as a loss of freedom for citizens and too expensive ($1.2 tillion during the next decade, they claim.)
But Most Democrats see the bill as an attempt to right a longtime wrong whereby this, the greatest country in the world, has allowed a system to grow where quality health care is just for those who can afford it. To hell with everyone else.
I think of my neighbor’s 2-year-old grandson who was just diagnosed with cancer. His treatments are costing approximately $10,000 per week. How would you afford his life-saving care? Today 62% of bankruptcies are caused by health care bills.
Michele Bachman just addressed the floor wearing a Hawaiian lei around her neck..swear to God. (She also invoked God during her speech.) Which got me to thinking, which side would Jesus vote with?
We must pass this bill.
It’s the right thing to do.
And we’re going to do it.
Ten minutes and counting…
