Republicans want to make Health care Obama's Waterloo!

Health Care Reform Challenge

I really was stunned to hear Republican Jim DeMint politicize this so blatantly. Those asses just do not stop! This is not about Obama. This is about America. If Republicans succeed in making Health care reform fail it will be America's Waterloo not Obama's. I do not believe DeMint even said that and a bigger issue has not been made of it. Obama did say something about it but he should have named names and should pound that asinine statement home. look at Mondays exchange

We must do something! We need more affordable and better health care. Despite the fear mongering we have some great examples to follow. Republicans decry Canada's health care system touting horror stories of inefficiency and suffering. I have never heard my Canadian family members complain. I have heard nothing but good. You can hear negatives in every system especially ours.

I was listening to Canadian Health Minister Ujjal Dosanjh fielding questions about Canada's health care system because of all the disinformation Republicans are feeding the public. We keep being told Canadian Doctors are unhappy with the system and under paid. He refuted that saying Canadian Doctors like the system and do not feel they are underpaid.

He said people are not turned away as Republicans say but if you have a heart attack or something major wrong with you, you go to the head of the line. Even illegal immigrants go to the hospital no questions asked. Your taxes pay for the coverage so you pay absolutely nothing. I am so sick of Mitch McConnell's and others lies and fear mongering over Canada's health care system.

It is do or die time for Obama who is doing the big sell to both party's and around the country. Health care is in surgery! I refuse to believe that we spend twice as much on health care than other developed Nations and we have 47 million and growing uninsured. I do not need it but I refuse to believe we can not do better than this! Baucus and Grassley believe bipartisan health care reform is doable

So what is the problem? Do it and do it now! Republican's see Political Blood. I am seeing red myself. They want Obama thus us and our version of America to fail. This is not about Obama it is about getting rid of us and our version of America once and for all.Obama has been steadily destroying their new version put in place by Bush and they want to get back in place to get their version back and finish average Americans and our version off.

How are we going to pay for this? Health care is the big fight right now! We can not fail on this because the future of our society is at stake. We have blown passing this before but we can not now. Obama is going around the country pushing for passage. We will pass something but what? I for one want to know that ahead of time. If not Obama will will be creating us and him bigger problems in the future.

Obama is on a relentless media blitz to pick up Republicans and Democrats that he need while Republicans are trying to break him. Those fools think if they make health care fail they can make Obama fail. To me they are saying let health care and his version of America fail and it sickens me. They make that blatantly obvious and get away with it. That is fundamentally wrong, unpatriotic, wanting America to fail. How the hell do they get away with this?

I think Obama pointing out what DeMint about making health care fail so it will be Obama's Waterloo should be repeated often and I bet that single asinine statement will be solely responsible for getting it passed. If it does not it will be to the Republicans demise! I think we can pass something in the next couple of weeks then work on improving it.

Republicans would be smart to stop making themselves failures and make sure something is done for the 47 million uninsured and the millions having trouble paying for health care. They can then spend as much time as they want tweaking it until we have a great Health Care Bill. I have a friend in Wales touting their system and despite Republicans fear mongering Canada's system I believe 100% we have some excellent examples and better do this now and get started perfecting it not fighting it. Obama is going to get this!

* Health care is the issue of our time! Believe it or not knowing this Congress is preparing to take a months vacation. What? Obama seems to be our friend and Congress once again our enemy. People are losing their jobs, their houses, sometimes their very lives and Congress has to go on vacation for a month? Vacation from what? Failure? Obama should go public with this and force Congress to stick around until they complete this. I heard a few Democrats say they are willing to stay and get this done. Hold there feet to the fire and get this done!

Obama is a man in a hurry, he has to be, he knows his first year is his best chance, after that inertia sets in, the wheels just grind to a halt.

What fails to get mentioned is the under insured, that's another 30-40 million depending on what you read. They are burdened with extremely high co-pays and deductibles. A third of the U.S. population need reform to happen. Its now or never.

Oh that age old scare mongering. Happens here all the time and people actually believe it.

4 weeks holiday? That's nothing. They go for 12 weeks here!

I know! I am getting increasingly concerned as I continue to watch the rabid Republican party. Did you see that fiasco yesterday at a Republican town hall meeting. I couldn't believe the anger. Supposedly because Obama is not an American but it is because he is black/ Republicans will eventually create their second Revolution as I keep saying just watch!

Hi Monique
I know but it is getting out of control not getting better. Republicans will create their Revolution it is only a matter of time.
12 weeks is an awful long time but now is not the time for a congressional vacation. They have been on one for over 8 years now. Time to get something done for we the people!

Here's something people fail to bring up. If the systems in the U.K. and Canada are so bad why haven't they failed by now? I know the U.K. system was started before WWII and they don't seem to have problems.

Holte - your input on that.

an average patriot said...

I want to see his input too! I have family in Canada and England and no complaints. I am sick of hearing Republicans scaring people with horror stories.

an average patriot said...

This is the comment from Landsker are friend from Wales on the likeness of their and England's system.
it is virtually the same, but with separate administrative centers.
It has its` faults, and in some instances, also relies on charitable donations, but overall, it does work!
As you say, the loudest voices against such a system in the US would be from those who profit financially from privatized health care.

At least the democrats and Obama are open to discussing this issue, but will they be bold enough to make the step from a profit driven industry to a full public service.

Hi Jim
That is sick brainwashing a 6 year old child. I left a loot of sites because of right wing blowhards. They talk about brain washing you Muslims. I am really concerned about our future because of the fanaticism Republicans are inciting in their effort to create a second Revolution against Obama so they can get back into power. This is not going to be good!Thanks by the way!
