It seems likely that if the Government both Federal and State can not respond to these basic needs, why are they so shocked and surprised by the skeptic approach many American’s are voicing about Health care. Now don’t take me the wrong way the Barnie Frank piece on the Woman from another planet was right on! Many of these disturbed comments have no place in the discussions, but still the pressure of survival is touching more and more of main street and the tone of discussion is reaching a peak. Not to mention the President and the Democrats in name only taking a walk on the Public Option instead of explaining the savings that could be had to the American people, has been a total miss management of the issue. The Public Option held out the greatest hope of taking one of life’s basic needs off of Middle class American’s worry list. Just Like Medicaid did for seniors back in 1965 when it was implemented.
You really should take the time to look these articles over if your interested in understanding more about what is worrying Main Street and why they are not looking at the Health care debate with as much energy as the folks from outer space
13% of all American home owners are either behind on payments or in foreclosure.
for the second week in a row Jobless claims are up.
regardless of the outcome of the Health Care Insurance reform we need to remember it is still about the economy that matters most to Main Street America and the fact that the Obama Administration seems to have moved on is no indication that the economy is on the right track, or is even showing signs of true healing instead the only thing healing are the Bailed out banks that are using our tax money to pay huge bonuses and keep their jobs and paychecks in tact. There is something to be said about the growing divide in the have and have-nots when we can spend trillions on the elite and watch the furniture pile up on the street corner with out comment.
I was hopping that our congress would find the time energy and brain power to multi-task these two issues and show how one is important to the other yet most of what is coming out is they have moved on and only Health care is on the mind. Lets hope we see and here more soon.
As Usual Just my Opinion
