President Obama’s Healthcare Plan – We The People Like It!

Last night President Obama successfully laid out his plan for healthcare reform at a joint session of Congress. President Obama made it unequivocally clear to Congress that their recess is over, that their time of game playing is over and that it is time for them to get back to work and do the job they were hired to do by the American people.

The speech was a brilliant and was filled with specifics.

Can you imagine a healthcare system where you and your family and the rest of us cannot be turned away for treatment because of a pre-existing condition? 

Or your premiums cannot go up just because you get sick? 

And your health insurance carrier cannot ‘water down’ your benefits, period. 

And if you don’t have insurance you will get coverage!

How wonderful is all that?!

 The heart of President Obama’s plan is simple:

1. Bring stability and security to Americans who already have health insurance

2. Guarantee affordable coverage for those who don’t have health insurance

3. Stop the rising cost of health insurance
 
President Obama incorporated the best ideas from Democrats and Republicans to create a plan that’s bold, practical, and represents what the majority of Americans agree on.

President Obama reminded us that we’ve come closer to real healthcare reform in the last few months than we have in the last 60 years. But those who profit from our unhealthy healthcare system the way it is now will fight him and fight us every inch of the way so that there is no healthcare reform. Because of this, YOUR voice, right now, is necessary, indispensable and is very important.

Healthcare reform will not happen just because we want it. It can only come when we demand it. The only way Congress is going to pass healthcare reform is if they hear from you and me.  I have made my calls, sent emails and letters.  Will YOU and every adult in your house please do the same? 

Please support President Obama’s healthcare reform plan.  Go to President Obama’s link below:

Add your voice: Ask your representatives to support my plan for real health reform in 2009.

Many of us spent a lot of time and energy to get President Obama elected; that was just the beginning.  Now we have to spend equal or more time making sure that he is successful implementing the policies we hired him to put into effect.

It is essential that you let your Senators and U.S. Representatives know that you support President Obama’s healthcare reform.

Democracy is not a spectator sport – we all have to participate for it to work.  Please participate.

Watch and listen to President Obama:

  1. From the posts I’ve seen today, I thought I was the only person who agreed with the President. Glad to see I’m not totally on my own!

    • Kurt, I have come to realize that no matter what the President does he’s going to be criticized. That’s just the way it is today. So we have to know within ourselves what is right and act accordingly.

      Listening to the talking heads pontificate is enough to drive a sane person insane.

      Do I agree with the plan 100%? No. But I agree with 95% of it and I want to see it signed. We have a moral obligation to ourselves and our neighbors to do this. No one in America should lose everything they worked for all their life just because they get sick. No one.

      Please contact your Senators and US Representatives.

      Thank you!!!

  4. I thought it was a fantastic speech. He was clear and decisive. I feel like he should have gave that speech the first time lol.
    It was relatable and I think he focused a lot on how this would benefit Americans who already have insurance. I especially liked how he gave examples of republicans who have work with Ted Kennedy, he mention an idea adopted from McCain. It was just an all around good speech.
    If this speech didn’t answer a lot of people’s questions who are against health care then they probably weren’t ever going to support a health care reform bill.

    • Sensico – I agree with you 100%. President Obama’s plan has something for everyone.

      How can anyone argue against not being turned away for medical treatment because of a pre-existing condition?

      I was floored when he mentioned the woman who had breast cancer and needed a double mastectomy but her insurance company denied payment for this life threatening disease because she had pimples at one point and that was considered a ‘pre-existing condition’. WTF!!! That is absurdity to the maximum.

      Please click on the link above and show your support for our President’s plan if you haven’t done so already.

      Once you plug in your zip code all of your elected officials name and phone number pop up. It’s very easy. It took me about a minute to contact all my representatives.

      Keep up the GREAT work on your blog.

      Cheers!

  5. I think most (R)are kkk and will do anything to stop a blackman but what they don’t realize is everyday they just make themselves look more stupid and reveal their true colors that was once an enemy with no face but now america sees.Go Obama!!

    • J — I don’t know if they are KKK but I believe that many of the elected officials are small-minded, self serving fiends.

      I think the original principles of what Republicans stand for are pretty honorable and make lots of sense.

      I also believe that the party in general has strayed and from their roots and turned into hypocritical, screaming non-thinking narrow-minded creatures who are even aliens to themselves. Like Joe Wilson.

  6. Health care or not, I’m partisan to a president that can lower my taxes and fix what the housing market “greed” created… Just get the job market back up and avoid more scams…including “communism”

  7. I think the obama plan is not the issue now. We have homelessness right now in the farm feilds of kansas. Meaning families are homeless living in the country by rivers and anywhere they can. I will be next. If we cant afford healthcare we cant afford it. Food and other things are first. Like water and ways to keep warm. There was an ad in the ottawa ks herald one or two months ago. Advertising for a educated person in health and welfare to work at the schools to manage and aid the homeless students. This is real. New agencies are being made to help the people from becoming homeless or helping the homeless. You going to fine us for being poor is what the obama plan is doing. I am poverty now. Not just poor. I have applied at every place here in town and am trying to ride my bicycle 36 to 40 miles one way to work. I feel guilty about not doing it sooner and still no work. How are we that have no dollars suppose to worry about healthcare. You already shut down factories and businesses by your fines and threats. The way to build up businesses is to stop fining and putting restrictions on small businesses. We need to worry about the soldiers in the other countries and how we are going to deal with the war. Forget the healthcare. I hope you are sending food and supplies to the young men and women in the other countries. There is nothing as good as when you are in a fox whole or in a tent or a small crappy shack as to get some soda pops and real food. I hope you are not using money for amunition and things they need for the healthcare plan.
