Today I was informed that a friend of mine has a Cancerous Tumor/Nodule that must be removed
IMMEDIATELY. This friend is a Wife and Mother of 2 children. Ironically enough, she worked in the
insurance industry for over 10 years. Returning to work briefly after a short leave of absence for
Maternity Leave, she was Layed Off. At this point her and her husband enrolled in The "Cobra"
program.(You Know, the one that gets a bloodsucking bite into you and then the stranglehold).
When you are bled dry, it runs out.
The costs of that for the family of Four was $1,700.00 per month.
Needless to say, this is more than people pay for rent (Average Statistics).
As you can guess, their "Cobra" Plan eventually expired.
Now they have not any Insurance Plan at all. They both work, but for some disgraceful
reason, neither of their employers provide insurance. So, that leaves these 4 American
Citizens whose families have contributed to American Society and all the Sacrifices
along the way for over 170 years(War Veteran Family) in a very dangerous and compromised situation.
Due to the fact that they both work, not to mention their self respect and pride,
(and please don't interpret this the wrong way), they are inelligable for "Medicaid."
At least I believe this is the case.
So the issue that is a stone in my shoe is thus:
How can The American Taxpaying People be not completely
Furious? For Believe it or not, the above described tragic situation could descend
upon any one of us. AT ANY MOMENT. When we as Taxpaying Citizens can allow our Elected officials
to send Foreign Aid in The Billions for Decades, Fund Wars in The Trillions for Decades
(Unfunded at this point), Create Tax Credits for those few who never even have to CONSIDER
the costs of Health Care, Provide "Cradle to Grave" Benefits for Congress. Need I further?
For I will Specify.
Yet in this day and age, there is all this rhetoric about "Obama Care",
when the plan did not even include "The Public Option".
The Public Option WAS THE WHOLE POINT.
What The Hell is Going On Here?
We are The United States of America. There is no "They". We are all on this boat together.
This is a Wake Up Call to You and Congress. For, A Nation That Fails to Represent ALL of her People,
Is a Nation that will Crumble to the Annals of History.
Forget "No Child Left Behind", How about " No Citizen Left Behind".
Just for Clarity, as the employment situation continues to deteriorate, the above scenario
that I have described will grow closer to home for Each and Every one of you.
The Numbers are Accurate. The Clowns need to pack up their Tents,and close down the Circus.
Its Time to Shape Up, or Ship Out.
And God Bless The United States of America.
