Just because Ted is dead…doesn’t mean the presented health care bill is any more palatable or any less flawed. I do appreciate his passion and desire for quality health care throughout America. However, I don’t appreciate his funeral service being used as a soap box for a liberal train wreck. Was I supposed to get weepy eyed and cave because his young grandson stood up and mouthed a rehearsed (and predetermined) prelude to this bill? Young Kennedy said, “For what my Grandpa called the CAUSE OF HIS LIFE…as he said so often in every part of this land…that every American will have decent quality health care as a fundamental right and not a privilege…We pray to the Lord.” Well, we had all better pray to the Lord on this one. What is the rush? If over half of the proposed legislation is acceptable to the “Committee of Six” then why not implement that portion in stages? Instead of ramrodding Americans with this ALL-OR-NOTHING message and using intimidation tactics…and God only knows what else…to arm-twist congressional leaders, who are choking on the egregious parts, why don’t we come back to the table and set agendas, egos , and power aside for the cause of Americans now and to come? We pray to the Lord.
Note: Let’s get God involved in more government decisions…Start off praying for wisdom.
May God bless America…and may America deserve it?
