My quiet, pleasant evening was just interrupted by this headline on MSNBC:
"Democrats have 60 votes to advance health care bill".
I literally felt my heart stop and my breath caught in my throat. This can't be happening. What happened to Liberman and the others who said they weren't going to vote for this? At least there were no Olympia Snowe's in this bunch... but it didn't seem to matter much.
I just want to cry and scream. Haven't they been listening to us? What about the tea parties and the letter-writing? Was it all for nothing? And all because of this community-apologizer-in-chief wants things to be "fair" for everyone, while he jokes with servicemen that they are only a "photo-op". Have you heard- universal healthcare is now called "community healthcare". Just sounds like something disgusting to me, like "community toilet" or something. But whatever you want to call it, I DON'T WANT IT!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't want you to tell me when I can or cannot get a mammogram, if I and my doctor decide I need one. It's none of the government's business. It's MY health care and MY responsibility. I've worked very hard to provide myself with care because my health is high on my priority list. Please don't take something away for me to give it to someone who didn't have it as high in their priorities. I love the United States of America - we're the best country out there. I don't want to be Europe or be like them. If I did, I'd be living in Europe, not here. I am not sorry for being an American, and in fact, I'm proud of it. I had no choice in where I was born, but I am glad that it was here and if I had a choice, I'd choose the USA all over again. I am not sorry about being an American-please don't apologize for me. I do not want to see my great nation flushed down the community toilet.
