What Really Happens If Healthcare Reform Dies?

By 1975, I was working for a hospital that provided its employees with a generous insurance plan. As employees, we paid very little into that plan, and when I gave birth in 1981, I paid nothing for the hospital bill or for the doctor bill. The insurance paid for everything. I felt blessed and lucky.

In no other wealthy nation on earth do we have the resources in abundance to treat our fellow human beings with the dignity they deserve but deny them a life simply because they can’t afford to live.

health care reform is now teetering on the edge of total collapse. President Obama is already talking about trimming the plan way back to cover areas that both parties agree on. This means that at best we will see some weak plan that solves little or nothing. Alternatively, the entire bill may just collapse under its own immense weight and fall apart completely.

What does the health-care law mean to me? The Washington Post, March 21, 2010 – This is the tool I used for my self-analysis. Enter your current insurance status, number of people in your household, adjusted gross income and marital status to see how it will impact you.

As a political advisor, and writer, I find myself scouring the Internet on a regular basis for articles and information that I deal with current political issues. From time to time, I will find one that will cause me to slap my head with frustration. Usually, these articles tend to have a title like, “President Bush is a Lizard Man in Disguise.” In this case, this article, which is meant to guide immigrants to this country, gives a horribly misleading picture of what has happened.

Note that i said conservatives, and not just Republicans. If all the conservative or “Blue Dog” Democrats stop objections, the Republicans would be a non-issue. Given the way they are self-destructing, that may be a foregone conclusion anyway. Time will tell.

The economy just tanked last year. Before that, we were rolling in money. The Mexicans, mowed our lawns, built our houses and harvested our food. They cleaned our houses, were nannies to our kids and done everything short of wiping our butts. We weren’t angry then, we were reaping the benefits. Now, it is becoming a hassle for them to be here.

Health Care Reform Or Aca

I don’t believe the Government is going to do anything. President Obama or whoever is sitting up there is not going to lift a finger to make these people leave. They say it is impossible to know where all of the illegals are, yet HR Block and other tax offices, handle thousands of ITIN’s each year. An ITIN is an identifying process for illegals that lets them work, file taxes and get a refund back. We sent those checks to local addresses, that are a part of a permanent record. We can’t find them? The irs did!

One would expect that a website that was set up to encourage people to realize the rights that were due to an immigrant would have some kind of basic understanding of the United states government. One would figure that if an organization like CAUSA, Oregon’s Immigrant Rights Coalition, was going to report about an issue that would effect immigrants, like the passing of the house health care bill, they would report that topic in an educated manner.

Michael R. Blood, Associated Press Political Writer, has written an article titled, “Primaries from Calif to SC measure voter anger.” It should state “will measure voters’ anger” because nothing is known yet. What is going to happen on Tuesday is some questions will be answered. What type and how much political clout does the Tea Party movement really have? Have we been paying too much attention to them or not enough? Are incumbents going to pay a price for ramming the health care reform down our throats?

A second question has been asked as to whether the abortion pill would be covered. The best way to address this is to advise readers as to what current insurers do about the abortion pill.

In the past decade I’ve gotten five new grandchildren and lost my father. I’ve closed a business and started a new job I like most of the time. Tried to move up the ladder but may try checking into new adventures. Many changes and mostly good.

In all honesty, though it pains me to say this in writing, if those programs had not been made available to me, or if i had had lung or some other form of cancer not covered in the available programs, I would not have burdened my family with the financial responsibility of caring for me. They would never have known, unless perhaps they decided to have an autopsy performed, why I died so suddenly.

A country that allows its citizens to die because they cannot afford health insurance, a country that places politics and profit above the importance of people is a country whose character has been marred by moral corruption. I could have been your mother, your sister, your daughter, or your friend. Would you have cared then? Would you have paid for my medical treatments? And if you had, would I have allowed you to lose everything you owned just so I could live?

But raising children on ,000 a year was most of the time difficult and oftentimes impossible. I found myself borrowing money from one credit card to pay the monthly fee on another credit card, and, when electricity, gas, water, and all of the other housing expenses, including insurance, far exceeded my income, which they generally did, I had to use credit cards to pay for the kids’ ever-growing clothing needs and for food.

One Business Owner’s Take On Health Reform

To be fair the bill has some good points. There can be no pre-existing condition exclusions. Your policy can’t be cancelled on you. Insurers are supposed to pay the claims in a timely manner. I wonder if this means they can’t keep sending you those little forms to fill out to clarify your claim.

Socialism and social justice are two entirely different matters. The new health care proposals are not certain to to turn the United states of america into a socialistic country. Our property will not be taken from us if our daughter receives affordable health care. The government will not confiscate our belongings if our father gets treated for a pre-existing condition.

Billy Mays was different from Obama in many forms. The main difference was that Billy Mays only pitched those products he totally believed worked and would in some way benefit the people. Obama is trying to sell us snake oil.

The number of uninsured in america is 49.9 million people, according to the U.S. Census. Its easy enough to track – the united states Census Bureau annually reports statistics on the uninsured.

If you are upset about the health care reform bill please get a copy of it and read through. This will answer your questions with fact rather than fear mongering and lies.

If we are indeed a banana republic, then a company (or a person for that matter) can arrive laden with coins, bestow them on someone hungry for coins, and the donor can then expect to have his will be done by the recipient of those coins. In short, if we are a banana republic, then the money filling political coffers is not donations, it is bribes. In such a system, if Mr. Obama took their money, he owes them. Are we a banana republic? Does he “owe” his donors? Is it tit for tat in American politics after all?

Riding a city bus can lend itself to many occasions for entertainment. Watching the old guy try and hit on the 17 year old on her way home from school. Overhearing the one-up-manship of who was in jail longer or who has been out the shortest amount of time. All can be very amusing for people watching during the commute.

People like me die every day because we don’t want to burden our families with financial destitution. People like me die every day because we live in a country that cares more about its politics than its people. If we could step back from the politics and recognize that the health of a nation is determined by the people who live in our country, we might care more about the people who are dying at the hands of greedy pharmaceutical and insurance companies. We might back the reformers of health care. Sick citizens do not make for healthy countries.

Health Care Reform: Why ‘Obamacare’ Is Not A Good Idea

Senator A: Greta, let me set the record straight. I have long opposed many aspects of the Healthcare Bill that is currently being debated in the Senate. I have said repeatedly that we must find a way to fix our healthcare mess without adding to the deficit and piling up debts for our children and grandchildren.

Hostess: Senator A, can you say that with all the back-room negotiations and special awards to some senators that the President has really been mindful of doing what America demands?

There is one wild card in the political process. It is Senator Olympia Snow of Maine. She has shown a tendency in the past to break with her party and vote as she sees fit. If she were to vote for health care reform, the plan could come back from the dead. Will she? It is impossible to know, but let’s just say there is going to be a long line at the door of her office and an absolute ton of pressure being placed on her.

The Immigration situation in this country today, is so far out of control, it may never be right again. They have not stopped them from coming. Homeland Security is a huge joke. The Border Patrol is even more of a joke. They aren’t making the billions of dollars given to them, work for any of the illegal problem.

THE PRESIDENT: This raises an important question, because it goes to the overall debate that’s taking place out there right now. When we talk about reform, you hear some opponents of reform saying that somehow we are trying to ration care, or restrict the doctors that you can see, or you name it. Well, that’s what’s going on right now. It’s just that the decisions are being made by the insurance companies.

The number of uninsured in america is 49.9 million people, according to the U.S. Census. Its easy enough to track – the united states Census Bureau annually reports statistics on the uninsured.

The stimulus plan is a huge failure. 9.5 percent unemployment with job loses of 467,000 in the month of June. So, officially we are out of 4.4 million jobs. How is the “create and or save jobs” working for you now sales man-in-chief?
