The LuLac Edition #1011, Nov. 18th, 2009



I think it is hysterical how the Senate GOP members, sensible men like Lamar Alexander question the need for Health Care Reform by saying that it will cost too much money and that the deficit will never go away. Take a look at this link:
4,000 people died in Iraq. We invested over 700 billion dollars and 4,000 soldiers. Where is the return on our investment?
With a national health care plan, we invest in our citizen's future. The dirty little secret here is that government will not administer health care. It might mandate it but the plan itself will be administered by third party fiscal intermediaries. Existing insurance companies will administer it. And they will be watched to make sure rates are fair, costs are contained and Americans will be healthier than ever.
The opponents are screaming about the cost: look at the link again:
You tell me what makes more sense, trying to fight a war looking for phantom weapons of mass destruction or providing a health care system that is fair to all Americans.

What a great link ...... interesting but terrifying. This stuff about the government not being able to administer health care is real BS. I've been on Medicare for the past six years and I have absolutely no problem with it. I also have a supplement insurance so the Insurance companies will not be out of business. The GOP has no problem on spending (giving)money to Haliburton, Balckwater, etc but certainly not the American people. But wait till you read he comments this post receives. How anyone can support the GOP effort to stop health reform amazes me. What doesn't amaze me is the lack of backbone shown by the Democrats in Washington. If they cut Medicare to help support this plan, there should be a real revolution and not stupid GOP orchestrated tea bag parties.

Right On Yonks! Gotta wonder what the hell is wrong with these people.
I lived in Tennessee during Lamar Alexanders tenure as Governor. He replaced a corrupt fool who was booted from office. He was a good Governor and always a man of character. He put the state back on track and restored respectability to the office.
I listen to him now and wonder if its the same guy.

Actually 100,000 people have died in Iraq because of the war.
