So I got this email and I thought really so I went and investigated:
Subject: THE $50,000 QUESTION
I did think to ask this question & did not see the program.If they are
willing to abide by the health care plan ,then I'm all for it
FINALLY....THE $50,000 QUESTION WAS ASKED !!!!!.....
YESTERDAY ON THE "ABC..OBAMA SPECIAL ON HEALTH ARE"......OBAMA WAS ASKED
"MR. PRESIDENT WILL YOU AND YOUR FAMILY GIVE UP OUR CURRENT HEALTH CARE PROGRAM AND JOIN THE NEW "UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE PROGRAM THAT THE REST OF US WILL BE ON ????....."
OBAMA IGNORED THE QUESTION (as usual) AND DIDN'T ANSWER IT !!!.....
A NUMBER OF SENATORS WERE ASKED THE SAME QUESTION AND THERE RESPONSE WAS...WE WILL THINK ABOUT IT !!!!
IT WAS ALSO ANNOUNCED TODAY ON THE NEWS THAT THE KENNEDY HEALTH CARE BILL"....HAS WRITTEN INTO IT - THAT CONGRESS WILL BE EXEMPT( FROM THIS GREAT HEALTH CARE PLAN)..................EXEMPT !!!!!
HOW ABOUT THOSE APPLES.....NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR OBAMA OR CONGRESS.....BUT "OK" FOR THE REST OF US ????????
WE. ...THE AMERICANS NEED TO STOP THIS ...ASAP !!!!.... AND REVOLT...THIS is WRONG !!!!!
IF YOU AGREE PLEASE PASS THIS ON ....IF NOT PLAN TO SUFFER ( WITH THE OBAMA HEALTH CARE PLAN ....FOR FREE....WHILE OUR POLITICIANS TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES...............
So I had to go check to see if it was real and I read this:
The president is barnstorming the nation, urging swift approval of legislation that is taking shape in Congress. This legislation -- the Affordable Health Choices Act that's being drafted by Sen. Edward Kennedy's staff and the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee -- will push Americans into stingy insurance plans with tight, HMO-style controls. It specifically exempts members of Congress (along with federal employees; the exemptions are in section 3116).
Members of Congress "enjoy the widest selection of health plans in the country," according to the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. They "can choose from among consumer-driven and high deductible plans that offer catastrophic risk protection with higher deductibles, health saving/reimbursable accounts and lower premiums, or fee-for-service (FFS) plans, and their preferred provider organizations (PPO), or health maintenance organizations (HMO)." These choices would be nice for all of us, but they're not in the offing. Instead, if you don't enroll in a "qualified" health plan and submit proof of enrollment to the federal government, you'll be tracked down and fined (sections 3101 and 6055).
So what are your thoughts are you for or against a Universal Health Care Plan?
