Arguments from the other side about health care don’t hold much water… Here is a random sampling of what I heard today..
Q1. I have good insurance. I don’t want to lose it because of Obama.
A1. Under Obama’s plan you keep your insurance… His plan doesn’t affect you one bit. But why then are you up for denying the other 80 million of Americans who over the past year couldn’t have health insurance because their employers couldn’t afford to fork up it’s cost?
Q2. I don’t want to someone to tell me what I can, or can’t have done medically after I’m retired.
A2. In that case you need to ditch your private insurance plan and pay everything out of pocket, because telling you what you can and can’t have done, is exactly what your private insurance companies are doing right now… (Btw, has your private insurance dropped you yet because you’ve 65 or retired? If not, get ready. That’s coming…) But that should be no reason why those with no health insurance who are still working, should not be able to afford health care…
Q3. I don’t want my children and grandchildren to pay for health care like they pay for social security and medicare…
A3. Good, Let them die from something as curable as measles, and your children and grandchildren won’t have to pay a penny. Like it or not, Social Security works… How much again, was your Social Security this month?……
Q4. I don’t want poor whites, blacks, or hispanics to have the same access to quality health care as I have.
A4. They won’t. Remember you said you had a good private insurance? Most of them don’t… Still doesn’t explain why you are so bent on denying them a right to any medical treatment whatsoever, because their employers simply can’t afford to pay for their health insurance….
Q5. Why don’t you just shut the fuck up and stop screwing with our attempt to muddy your “boy” by telling lies and spreading rumors…
A5. Because I love this country. I need it to survive. Lies and rumors are interfering with our national survival… Since you don’t read, you probably don’t know there is a global economic crises affecting all people on this planet. Keeping health care costs low by inserting the government option at insurance marketplace, will make our nation’s products and services more competitive against those other nations who like us are just trying to survive as well.
Q6. Give me one good reason why I should support Health Care Reform !!!!!
A6. Your birth certificate will be meaningless unless there is immediate Health Care Reform.
Q7. Oh no! Really?
A7. Absolutely. You and Obama will be standing side by side in the exact same boat, with exactly the same legal documentation, unless Health Care Reform is passed as soon as possible… Is that what you want? I mean…. really… is that… what you want?
