Obama SOTU: Health care

(CNN) - President Barack Obama Tuesday signaled his willingness to revise his administration's controversial health care law passed last year. "Let me be the first to say that anything can be improved," Obama said in remarks prepared for delivery in his State of the Union address.

Obama added "we can start right now" by revising bookkeeping regulations in the law that have "placed an unnecessary burden on small businesses." But he said, "What I'm not willing to do is go back to the days when insurance companies could deny someone coverage because of a pre-existing condition."

    It's a shame that the lawmakers of this country cannot and won't fund "Fair and Equal" healthcare for ALL Americans. It’s a shame to say that if these lawmakers had to rely on the care that we are given I don't think that Sen. Gifford would be doing as well as she is doing. If they had to deal with the coverage we all have, (without privileges) live on the meager wages that many deal with I’d bet they would find a way to change the wage laws, Health care and banking laws. They have the power; they just refuse to use it for the good of all. They represent themselves and NOT the ones who put them where they are now.
