The Senate approves its version of health care reform. CNN's Bob Costantini in Washington and John Lisk in Atlanta with more.
Merry Sniffmas everyone...yes, even you, you silly GOPers :-)
The next time you or your child or other relative look for a job, and BENEFITS are the priority, think about it. Those benefits are what you want and need. And what kind of benefits will they be? My friends in Canada don't worry about health benefits. They don't worry about losing their home and their savings because of an illness. Sure they pay taxes. But when they go to the doctor or the hospital, they don't see an invoice. They get taken care of.
A President with all the good intentions of doing good for the American people has come up short with the weight of all promises that were made at the time of his election on his shoulders.
He wilted in the face of the onslaught of lobbies,special interest groups & big business who waged war against policies for the American people with money & unbridled power.
He backed down in the face of the intrigues & unashmed propaganda of those lawmakers who work for fat cats like the Insurance Cos & big Pharma.
He weakened in the fight for the American people despite being the most powerful man on the planet.
The watered down & mutilated version of the Health Care Bill passed in the senate speaks for itself.
