Keith Olberman's comment about health care.
Our politicians supposedly works for us, The People.
Michael Moore discusses his movie, "Sicko", which tells the story about
America's lack of attention to the importance of health care.
(Although it is old news, it is still interesting)
I have the slightest idea what the entire health care reform entails.  Honestly, who can read 500-plus pages in one
setting?  When I was in college, I was lucky if I read more than 200 pages at once.  I have read pieces, parts, sections
and/or chapters of a novel before to going to bed.  I have even read a few pages during my lunch break or while waiting
in a doctor's office, but not sat down and actually read an entire book.

I have the slightest idea what the health care reform act promises, but from what little I have read and been told, it will
lower my health insurance premiums.  Additionally, it will allow those without health insurance, an opportunity to obtain it
at an affordable price. I do not believe it is possible to follow through with the planned health care reform without putting
a strain on taxpayers.  However, that would be a pretty sweet dream, wish and desire.
Some Republicans have said that health care reform is a death panel, and that is somewhat comical yet truly sad, as the
delivers of such information is scaring some folks.  I truly do not understand why some of these Republicans get a kick
out of using scare tactics as a way to win support.  Sometimes, I feel sorry for those that support and believe everything
politicians say, as they are willing to believe what they are being told.  It is as if they enjoy being told what to believe;
even with the facts before their eyes.  I do not know if they are stupid, simple or slow.  I must believe that they are just
lazy and it is easier to get secondhand information.  Whatever.
I do not know if the proposed health care reform plan is universal health care in disguise, but I do know that it is not a
government-ran health care plan.  However, if my government wants to pay for my medical care, I am not against it, as
could honestly use a break from the constantly rising premiums.  As long as I can continue with the exact same health
care providers and insurance company, then I am gung-ho.  Accordingly, our politicians are receiving government-ran
health care.  Why should The People be exempt?

It is disturbing that some of our politicians care or are concerned about those who are suffering but not able to afford
health insurance.  How could anyone sleep at night knowing that there is more than one life that is suffering due to a lack
of or absolutely no medical insurance?  That is disturbing!  What upsets me most, is the $4,000,000,000 we spend
protecting former presidents, the $300,000,000 taxpayers pay to house wild horses, increased gas and grocery prices
(namely dairy).  But the most disturbing part of all this mess, is the blatant lies about Obama’s administration and the
threats against his life.
"I suffer no illusions that this will be an easy process. It will be hard. But I also know that
nearly a century after Teddy Roosevelt first called for reform, the cost of our health care
has weighed down our economy and the conscience of our nation long enough. So let
there be no doubt: health care reform cannot wait, it must not wait, and it will not wait
another year.
"

    – President Barack Obama, Tuesday, February 24, 2009
With all the commotion at these town hall meetings, I bet President Obama is losing a lot of
sleep.  Here he is, trying to help The People, and yet there are just too many of us who
REFUSE to understand.  Some, will believe whatever they are told, others just want to spread
something that they think they know, but do not.  Instead, they just want to tell anyone who will
listen to something they know nothing about.

The whole misinformation about health care reform in this Country is truly sad.  Additionally, it
is sad that Obama did not realize how dumb some Americans are, which is a sad truth.

I have the slightest idea what the entire health care reform entails.  Honestly, who can read
500-plus pages in one setting?  When I was in college, I was lucky if I read more than 200
pages at once.  I have read pieces, parts, sections and/or chapters of a novel before to going to
bed.  I have even read a few pages during my lunch break or while waiting in a doctor's office,
but I have not sat down and actually read an entire 500-plus-page book.
