Obama's healthcare plan

I am so out of the loop, I have an 11 month old and I'm 8 months preggo, so I can barely make it through the day let alone keep up with the news. I have heard a lot about Obama's healthcare plan and his credit card laws and how no one is supporting them, but I don't know what his plans are... can anyone explain?

  • Silly Anon, SMART people aren't supporting him.

    OP, you can find legislation for both on open congress. Just google open congress credit card bill and open congress healthcare bill.

    Beware though the legislation is long, but they offer a summary.

    Not we don't support insanity. This bill is insanity and anyone who has read it knows this will ruin healthcare for all instead of providing it for the minority of people who actually need it.

  • There has been a LOT of great info posted in the last week or two. Truly - just scroll back a few days and read the many debates written in the past days.

  • Tons of spending, government deciding on treatments, no competition with a govt. who is not in for a profit.
    Why do you think other countries come here for care.......we have the best. I am totally against this.
    Obama himself told a lady concerned about her elderly mothers condition and future....he said
    "maybe the surgery won't help and she many just have to take a pain killer".......scary.
    Our representative emailed and said they are not even being allowed to read the whole thing before they are called to vote.......crazy.....our voices can make a difference......been there, done that
