Posts Tagged ‘health care’

The reason I’ve been a registered independent for the past 10 years is demonstrated by the actions of the so called “Blue Dog Democrats” with respects to health care reform.

I believed that Bill Clinton AND Hillary Clinton were “blue dog Democrats” all along. They were just smarter ones then those who are currently blocking health care reform. I mean, the State of North Carolina is dominated by the Democrat Party at the state level. I have found their political behavior to be akin to that of Republicans when it comes to corruption and bigotry here in the State of North Carolina.

Now Kay Hagan, MY SENATOR, is essentially identifying with the coalation of Democrats (Blue Dog Democrats) who  are in opposition to a public health care plan?

!#&@*^%+ (WTF is Wrong with This Woman)

It’s a new day. With blogs and whatnot, Kay’s gotta learn that this type of behavior will surely see to it that she is a one term politician. The only way her sorry arse beat Elizabeth Dole is because those of US who voted for her sorry arse wanted someone in there who would be for change.

Instead, Hagan is the status quo! What’s the difference between Dole and Hagan so far? Nothing! Oh, and those rural voters who suffer the most with respects to receiving sub par health care, they got the internet now. They see your behavior.

If the Republicans can waste 1 trillion on a war that did not bring one benefit to the American people, then  1 trillion spent on Health care reform that benefits ALL American People is money that is better spent.

If Hagan was saying that she opposed the reform because it allowed illegals to benefit from the plan, then I’d understand. But this crap about it being too expensive. That what’s getting you in trouble.

How dare Republicans and these punk Democrats that allow their Republican Masters to pull their strings bring up cost issues. The People are well aware of the money they wasted on the War in Iraq the past 6 years. That’s why their on the ropes.

Spend MY MONEY/TAXES on something that I do support, health care reform. Not on funding the pockets of the Republicans constituents, the banking industry, the military industrial complex the health care industry and the Oil industry.

I think we need to take a look and what Glaxo and the Bayer’s out there are contributing to Kay Hagan. It looks like she might be in their pocket…

I just filled up my tank and the price of a gallon of regular is $3.50 plus at just about every gas station here in Raleigh, NC.

I just had to pay a $333 co-pay for a ct scan for my daughter earlier in the day.

I’m pissed.

I stop by a convience store and over hear several NC candidates for Governor advertisements for my vote while I was in line to pay for an overpriced bottle of Sunkist. All of them say that I need a governor that won’t look out for the special interest people or it’s time for the “not so special interest citizens of the state of NC” to have someone in the Governors house that will look out for them.

I get home, check the news on the net, and I’m inundated with video reports showing Hillary dancing on stage to the tune of Rocky, or reading about Obama asking people can they smell what he’s cookin.

And George W. Bush has the nerve to go to NEW ORLEANS of all places and dances on stage, having a good ole time with some house servant looking brotha with an umbrella dancing with him.

I have no choice but to vote and become involved in the political process no matter what the outcome of the 2008 Presidency for the rest of my life. I will not go down without a fight. The reason I blog now is solely to voice my “perspectives on life and politics from a brotha’s perspective”.

No political candidate speaks for me. I’ve got a decent paying job. I’ve got health insurance. I’ve got a home with a regular mortgage. I’m raising two girls and my spouse is someone with a Master’s Degree who’s had to accept a job paying her far below what she used to make and provide what’s needed to have something left after the important bills are paid, just to pay her student loans that will soon kick in after her deferment expires (she was unemployed for 8 months prior to this February 08).

I am doing great by some other peoples standards, but I am struggling to stay afloat. But I will stay afloat. And I will make my voice heard. I am neither black nor a liberal or a conservative. I am a citizen of these United States of America.

Hopefully, those of you voting for Hillary understands what someone is saying when they say they are voting for Obama more for the revolution that it fuels. Voting for Hillary does not fuel revolution. It brings back some of the same special interest people back into power or keeps some who’s already in power, in place.

The Clinton history of pandering has been “vetted” by ones look back at Bill’s Presidency. Do you think the Clintons are scared of any of us? Hell no. Especially not Bill. He’s shown us that hand.

I want someone who cares what white people are going to say about their moves/decisions. What Black people care about their moves/decisions. What Hispanics and Asians care about their moves/decisions. I want us all to have that weight.

I hope Obama wins. And after him, I hope someone else wins who’s so new to the scene that they too have not been around long enough to owe something to a special interest. They would have to worry about what THE PEOPLE think of his or her decisions as President.

And not let these bastards get away with gouging us at the pump and laying people off because their investors like it when they cut costs and move jobs overseas so the profits can go up so more rich people either here or in Saudi Arabia, Japan or China can buy the stock at a higher cost.

Hopefully, there are enough people out there thinking this way and not the same number of fools who actually voted for GHWB not once, but twice.
