30 Years Ago: The Day the Middle Class Died | Common Dreams
Take your life back. If the healthcare reform platform fails, we all will greatly suffer. Think seriously about this. I saw on CNN today that there has been a 70% increase in food stamps in the past 7-8 years!!!! Our country is not going to get better if hardcore republicans take back the White House. They want to take away the last remnants of any programs and policies that help the average person live a happy and plentiful life, meaning, the basics.
For those of us who have or are currently facing cancer treatment and/or managing side effects of our surgeries and treatments, disaster looms.
Every person deserves to live a decent life, around the world. We are going backwards!
Please think about this when you start to ponder your election choices. I am defending the President, and will vote to keep him in office. He needs to retain his leadership position, to remain an advocate who understands that we all deserve equal access to healthcare that is affordable.
I know the healthcare reform legislation is not perfect, but it is a starting point. Personally I would have preferred a single payer system, nationally available to all people who live in the United States. I just don't believe in "for profit" health care, but that's just me.
Protect your right to healthcare. Protect the rights of your children, their children, their children's children.
The Uber-wealthy can contribute more, and they should. N'uff said.
