The Ethics Of Health Care Reform

They have changed signs, phone messages, schools and school books and anything else they could, to be in Spanish. I fought for my job last year, because of illegals at HR Block, coming in for their ITIN’S, and the need to be proficient in Spanish. It has become a normal thing to be required to speak Spanish on the job. Did we have to learn Vietnamese or Italian or any other language to accommodate other people who migrated to the U.S.? No! I haven’t seen one printed item that had those languages added to the English version, except some instructions.

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.

The 60 vote cloture rule is a good check on extremism. It can’t be used for budget reconciliation because you need a budget. But Obamacare is not budget reconciliation. Even though you have the stronger team and the lead, you can’t change rules in mid-game and keep the fans. Let’s hope the Dems realize that or if they don’t, we may not need to worry about 60 Dem votes for too long.

And you can never go wrong when you speak about the well-being of our children. However, Obama fails to mention that he is the soul responsible for putting a burden upon our children and future grandchildren.

It’s like magazine subscriptions. If you’re conservative you read the national Review or American Spectator. If you’re liberal you read The nation or Mother Jones.

health care reform is a tough call. We either have to make a plan to send them all home, which won’t happen ever, or we have to figure out how to keep them healthy. Which would mean letting them have access to health options. What are we going to do, take buses around to their houses, load them up and drive them back to Mexico? No! It ain’t gonna happen, people!

But the only point I wanted to make was the notion that somehow just by having a public option you have the entire private marketplace destroyed is just not borne out by the facts. And in fact, right now you’ve got a lot of private companies who do very well competing against the government. Ups and FedEx are doing a lot better than the post office. (Applause.) No, they are. And so — but the larger point I want to make — and it’s good to see a young person who’s very engaged and confident challenging the President to an Oxford-style debate, I think this is good. (Applause.) You know, the — this is good. You know, I like that. You got to have a little chutzpah, you know.
