Healthcare on Life Support

One of the possibly most historic bills in the history of the united states. It could be compared with the new deal and other initiatives like that.

Interestingly, many people who were once big supporters of Obama seem to have now withdrawn support. Popular opinion among political pundits is that he was elected as a left center president but has now begun pushing a radical agenda.

In some versions of the legislation, people making over one million dollars will be taxed an additional five plus percent. In reality, the problem is the additional burden will impact the average American.

In short order this legislation will transform not just healthcare but the entire economy. Personally, this feels like the biggest economic issue since the stimulus.

By standing by and doing nothing, we are giving our legislators a blank check. I think that is a mistake. I've written to my reps and I urge you to do the same. Right now the decisions to spend money will impact us and our future generations more than most decisions in the past decade. Please contact them and weigh in. It will help your money more than most other things you can do.
