The House of Representatives Pass Healthcare for all reforms,…now on to the Senate.

The United States has taken a big step into the future.Our representatives in the House, have finally decided that healthcare for all, is a good idea, and is the key to the future stability of the United States of America.

I commend the efforts of our president, along with the courageous statesmen that chose to stand with him on the right side of history.

The House of Representatives passed the health care bill with a vote of 220-215 on Saturday.  The lone Republican to vote for the Democratic bill was Anh “Joseph” Cao from New Orleans, and nearly 40 Democrats voted against it.  For a complete list of names of Democrats who voted against it, click here for the New York Times chart.

Democrats were forced to make major concessions on insurance coverage for abortions to attract the final votes to secure passage, hopefully those can be reversed at a later date, a wrenching compromise for the numerous abortion-rights advocates in their ranks.

Health insurance coverage is estimated to cost 894 billion dollars according to Democrats, but will most likely cost over 1 trillion dollars once all provisions are included.  The public option will be available in 2013, and illegal immigrants will not be covered.  

The Senate is now become the main battleground in the health care fight as the  Democrats that are  there, ready their own bill for what is likely to be an extensive floor debate.

Democrats say the House measure passed Saturday will extend insurance coverage to 36 million Americans who currently do not have coverage. A limit will be placed on annual out-of-pocket expenses, and insurance companies will be prevented from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions.

In a quote given to the New York Times…Republicans condemned the vote and said they would oppose the measure as it proceeds on its legislative route. “This government takeover has got a long way to go before it gets to the president’s desk, and I’ll continue to fight it tooth and nail at every turn,” said Representative Kevin Brady, Republican of Texas. “Health care is too important to get it wrong.”

I agree.

It is also too important for the future of our nation to allow any citizen within our borders to go without it, or to go broke over it.

I have always felt that the Republicans oppose this bill because they want the impoverished to die quickly, and their actions against this bill has proven that suspicion to be correct.

Any Republican in the House or Senate that for reasons of moral conscience that chooses to support providing healthcare for all, no matter what one’s financial state may be, will be vilified, and ostracized from your party, because they do not support an individual among their ranks, deciding what is best for those that voted them into office.

The Republicans that vote in support of Health care reform are our true patriots, are should be welcome into the Republican party, ass they are the one’s that will prevent your failed party from slipping into the insignificance of past history.

I endorse all in the government who are moving forward with this sweeping change, which is long over due.

Recently I had to pay an exorbitant amount of money to get a mammogram because I had discovered a lump in my breast that was painful. For some unknown reason the exam was not covered under my policy, which cost me well over a thousand dollars a month for me and my son.

I often wondered, what would happen if I did not have the finances to see if I had breast cancer, which does occur in men. Would I proceed to get the test, or would I wait until it became an emergency?

I wish I would have known that my medical insurance conducts itself as a death panel currently, then I could have saved myself thousands of dollars by not paying these premiums.

I mean,…what have I been paying for all these years.If I get sick, I expect them to cover what ever procedure the doctor orders.

I endorse this Health care reform, because what we have now, is deadly for all that are not wealthy,and those of us in the middle that pay out-of-pocket, we still are in jeopardy.

Look at the list of those who voted for this measure, and send them a message of your support.

Familiarize yourself with the names of those that are fighting to keep this deadly status quo, which  favors the Insurance monopolies as they prey upon the good citizens of the United States, and vote them out of office, into insignificance.

This is the only way to preserve our freedom that our boys are dying for on the field of battle, in a foreign war.

Do not let our soldiers die in vain.They are fighting for our right to elect to provide healthcare for all.

  1. Urgent!! Robert Reich on your healthcare

    Why A Strong Public Option Is Essential – By jacksmith – Working Class

    Robert Reich explains the pubic option:

    Hollywood Supports The Public Option 🙂

    Beautiful HEATHER GRAHAM 🙂

    It’s not just because more than two thirds of the American people want a single payer health care system. And if they cant have a single payer system 77% of all Americans want a strong government-run public option on day one (86% of democrats, 75% of independents, and 72% republicans). Basically everyone.

    It’s not just because according to a new AARP POLL: 86 percent of seniors want universal healthcare security for All, including 93% of Democrats, 87% of Independents, and 78% of Republicans. With 79% of seniors supporting creating a new strong Government-run public option plan, available immediately. Including 89% of Democrats, 80% of Independents, and 61% of Republicans, STUNNING!!

    It’s not just because it will lower cost. Because a strong public option will dramatically lower cost for everyone. And dramatically improved the quality of care everyone receives in America and around the World. Rich, middle class, and poor a like.

    It’s not just because it will save trillions of dollars and prevent the needless deaths of millions more of YOU, caused by a rush to profit by the DISGRACEFUL, GREED DRIVEN, PRIVATE FOR PROFIT MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX!

    It’s not just because every expert in every field, including economist, and Nobel laureates all agree that free market based healthcare systems don’t work. Never have and never will. The US has the only truly free market based healthcare system in the World. And as you all know now, IT IS A DISASTER!

    It’s not just because providing or denying medically necessary care for profit motivations is wrong. Because it is WRONG! It’s professionally, ethically, and morally REPUGNANT!, Animalistic, VILE and EVIL.


    The public option is ESSENTIAL because over 200 million of you are trapped in the forest of the wolves. Which is the forest of the DISGRACEFUL, GREED DRIVEN, PRIVATE FOR PROFIT MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX! With no way out except through needless inhumane suffering, and DEATH. While the wolves tear at your flesh, and rip you limb from lib. Then feast on your lifeless bodies like a dead carcase for transplant parts.

    At the most vulnerable times of your lives (when you were sick and hurting), millions of you have had to fight and loose cruel, but heroic battles. Fighting against the big guns of the DISGRACEFUL, GREED DRIVEN, PRIVATE FOR PROFIT MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX! in the forest of the wolves. All because you have no place else to go. You have no other CHOICE!

    But the PUBLIC OPTION will give you someplace safe to go. And it will give us someplace safe to take you. The public option will be your refugium (your refuge). Where the wolves cannot get at you when your down, hurting, and vulnerable. Where everyone who needs it can find rest, security, comfort and the care they need. Protected by the BIG GUNS of We The People Of The United States. THE MOST POWERFUL PEOPLE AND COUNTRY ON EARTH.

    This is why it is so critical that we do not lead another 50 million vulnerable, uninsured Americans into the forest of the wolves, without the protections of a Strong Government-run MEDICARE like public option. We The People Of The United States MUST NOT LET THAT HAPPEN to any more of our fellow Americans. If healthcare reform does not contain a strong MEDICARE like public option on day one. YOU MUST! KILL IT. Or you will do far more harm than good. And millions more will die needlessly. Rich, middle class, and poor a like.

    To those who would continue to obstruct good and true healthcare reform for the American people, and who seek to trap millions more vulnerable Americans in the forest of the wolves. We will continue to fight you. We are prepared to wage all out war against you, and will eagerly DESTROY! you. Time…is…UP! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! No Co-op’s! No Triggers! NO INDIVIDUAL MANDATES! without a Strong MEDICARE like public option on day one.

    Healthcare reform can be the GREATEST! Accomplishment of our time and century. A time when future generations may say of us, that we were all, AMERICAS GREATEST GENERATIONS.


    I therefore call on all my fellow Americans and the peoples of the World. To join us in this fight so that we may finish becoming the better America that we aspire to be for everyone.


    I have been privileged to be witness as many of you fought, and struggled to take your first breath, and your last breath on this earth. Rich, middle class, and poor a like. Life is precious.

    Whatever the cost. WE! MUST SUCCEED.

    God Bless You My Fellow Human Beings

    ATTENTION!! Congress Has The Votes Needed To Pass A Public Option – TODAY

    Things You Can Do To Help NOW!

    A majority of voters would rather have a Democrats only bill with a Public Option. Than a bipartisan bill without a Public Option.

    A state based insurance plan is NOT!! a Public Option. Nor is it a Strong, National, Medicare like Public Option.

    No Triggers!
