Everybody goes back to work on Capitol Hill this week as members of the United States Senate and The House Of Representatives resume hammering out a complicated health care initiative.
Funny isn’t it that when President Barack Obama was campaigning on healthcare reform prior to his historical election that voters were all in tune and ready to sign on for it.
Now that he’s in office and ready to move this nation forward, critics are coming out of the closet to fight against it. Republicans and some insurers are footing the bill for the persuasion that is confusing voters.
But don’t let them confuse you. Make it your business to exercise the same right you had in voting not just President Obama into office but your Senators and Congress people.
Write them letters, email them and tell them you will not sit idle until this bill that insures health care for all Americans is passed.
This is not for the privileged few, it’s for that sick child who may be sitting next to your child in school or that man on the public transportation system who may be sitting next to the person you work with and is ill.
Healthcare for is not a privilege, it would be a right and the responsibility is resting in the hands of the nation they live in. If Cuba can have it why not US? If Israel can have it Why Not US?
It’s time for US to stand behind our President. It’s time for US to carry the fight to our elected officials and demand that we want Health Care!
Finally, but certainly not least of all I want to wish my friend and former colleague Ken Miller the absolute best of luck in his new job with Congresswoman Laura Richardson.
Ken has dedicated his life to the Sentinel and has been a model employee during the time my family has owned the publication. Reliable and loyal, he will take those same skills to our friend Laura Richardson.
I love you Ken and I will really miss YOU!
