Protecting Americans

We need to get serious about protecting Americans! Congress is supposed to serve Americans, NOT the other way around. They should receive absolutely NO benefit that is not available to every other American. If you want to be called a Public Servant, then do your job! Remove health-care subsidies for Members of Congressand their families […]

People of Faith Should Care About Health Care for All

Living in Arizona, I see so many people without health insurance and just like in South Carolina (my home state), if a woman does not have a qualifying child, she does not qualify for help with health care. It seems to me that people of faith should care about health care for all people, regardless […]

Executive Order on Abortion

What an interesting turn things have taken today regarding the debates on health care reform.  The President has offered to issue an Executive Order restricting abortion, but many Republicans are now stating “live” on TV, that Executive Orders are useless.

The health reform plan that the senate panel has approved for presentation to the full house and senate is not as bad as many people would have us believe. In fact, I think it’s the best plan so far. I am tired of so many people telling me what it’s going to do, which is […]

McCain blissfully ignorant on Health Care Issues

John McCain believes that the private sector can provide health care sufficiently for all Americans. Ideally, I would love for that to be true. Unfortunately, most companies are in the money making business without regard for the clients they serve. One can only conclude that John McCain is either… 1) not in touch or blissfully […]
