Living Numb...

I am very worried about this health care bill. Not only because I fear the government being in charge of anything (DMV anyone? IRS?), but mostly because of the way it's being done. It's going around the proper steps our forefathers put in place. Right now, congress hasn't passed anything. We may be signing off on a bill that is forced upon us without proper steps.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely. It's why you can't get a fair study on a drug that is making money, but perhaps killing at the same time. It's why, though the autism rate has decreased since the mercury came out of the shots, you will never get the powers that be to admit this. They will never be guilty, and if they are, they will focus on the lives saved by the MMR shot.

So I don't mean to get political, but it's time we paid attention to what our government was up to and voted on THEM versus American Idol. Do I want healthcare for every American? Absolutely. Do I want BAD healthcare for every American? I do not.

Pray for Colleen's Mom this morning, she's having Heart issues!!

Most of us want everyone to have coverage if they want it, but there has to be a better way. Anything that requires 17,000 more employees at the IRS can't be good!

I absolutely agree.

Totally agree. A friend of mine got very irritated when I voiced my concern about this and he couldn't believe I didn't want everyone to have healthcare.

This is a common misconception. That if we don't want "this" bill to pass we don't want healthcare for everyone. On the contrary. I'd love for everyone to have great healthcare. I'm just nervous about this particular bill and the way they're trying to push it through.

If this bill passes, eventually health care will be rationed. Then people like me who are disabled or like Diann who are struggling with cancer may die for lack of care. I don't know about you all but I'm not willing to die if it's not by God calling me home. We need to really pray, pray, pray in the next 24 hours or so for God's will to be accomplished, not the President's or any Senator's or Congressman's.

Praying today also. Our Pastor this morning preached on Daniel and integrity - my mind wandered to the many in Congress who will be voting today & if they will have integrity & do the right thing - not the political thing. I have a child with special needs & get wonderful medical care for her which I fear would change under this new health bill. I also would like everyone to be able to get the best medical care possible - but this healthbill is not the answer.

My 82 year old mother just had to have a total shoulder replacement a month ago. When her doctor came in to talk to us he told us that if the healthcare bill had passed the way it currently is, my mom would not have been allowed to have the surgery. My mom would have to finish her life in pain and with no use of her dominant arm. Another thing that most people do not know is that when government is saying that the AMA (American Medical Association) backs Obamacare they neglect to tell you that currently ONLY 13% of medical doctors are currently members of the AMA. Because of all the 'shady' things that are going on doctor's are opting out of the association.

I pray all is well with Colleen's mom!

Thanks for the prayers for Colleen's mom. She is doing better and resting. YAY! I've been glued to my set all morning. I cannot believe our government is back door deals and really using mafia skills to extort votes. And where is the house in this? And an executive order out of the blue? So Obama can write law now? I'm sick over it.
