Bottom Line:

Like all of you. I know that health care is the most critical, and important issue facing the American people. Now, and in the coming elections. And like the vast majority of the American people, I want HR 676 (Medicare For All) passed into law NOW! "Single payer, Tax Supported, Not For Profit, True Universal Health Care" free for all as a right. Like every other developed country in the world has. See: http://www.house.gov/conyers/news_hr676.htm

“HR 676:
For church goers: less money to insur. companies and more to the church- lots more.
Srs on Medicare: save way over $100/wk. Because no more medigap, long term care & dental insur. needed. No more drug bills.”

But if we the American people fail to bring enough pressure on our current politicians to get HR 676 passed into law before the elections. We will have to identify, and replace all the politicians standing in the way of passage of HR 676. And, I think the best first place to start is with the politicians that blocked the bipartisan SCHIP bills for the kids. Passed by congress twice.

But what about the President. It was Bush after all that blocked the bipartisan SCHIP bill passed by congress to assure more health coverage for Americas kids. So which of the presidential hopefuls do I think will be most supportive of implementing the demand of the majority of the American people to have HR 676 (Medicare For All) passed into law immediately!

We have some very fine presidential candidates who would make good presidents. But none of the top Presidential candidates directly support HR 676, the only true Universal Health Care plan. So I am supporting Hillary Clinton. She is the only top candidate that has ever actually fought for universal health care before.

I have enormous admiration, and respect for Hillary Clinton. She fought a pitched battle against overwhelming odds back in 1993. To prevent this disastrous health care crisis that is now devastating the American people, and America. She fought so hard for the American people that she risk almost completely destroying her husbands presidency. I haven't forgotten her heroic effort. If any Presidential hopeful for universal health care deserves my support, it's her.

Also, if we the American people fail to bring enough pressure on our government to give us HR 676 which we all so desperately need NOW! Then we will need the most skilled politician we can get on our side to broker the best health care plan for the American people that we can get. Though it will be less than we need, and less than we deserve. The politician I think to best do this is Hillary Clinton. The Clinton's are probably the most skilled politicians in American history.

The insurance industry, and medical industry that has been ripping you off, and killing you has given Hillary Clinton so much money because they fear her. They have also given Barack Obama so much money because they fear Hillary Clinton. They think they can manipulate Barack Obama against the best interest of the American people better than they can manipulate Hillary Clinton. There is no race issue with Hillary Clinton. The Clinton's are the poster family for how African Americans want white people to be towards African Americans.

As always, African Americans are suffering, and dieing in this health care crisis at a much higher rate than any other group in America. The last time there was any significant drop in the African American death rate was when Bill Clinton was president.

My fellow Americans, you are dieing needlessly at an astounding rate. In higher numbers than any other people in the developed world. Rich, and poor a like. Insured, and uninsured. Men, women, children, and babies. And we the American people must stop it. And fix it NOW! Keep Fighting!!! Never! give up hope. There are millions of lives at stake. Bless you all... You are doing great!

If health care is such an important issue for sHillary, why couldn't she do anything in the eight years her husband was in office?

Hillary is perfectly normal and the media has made something out of nothing. I have seen the real footage in real time and it is much different from slowwwwwww pictures on drudge or some other right wing nutty site.

Bush ie the Chimp, cries all the time and no one says anything. He is the one who suffers from religious delusions. God told him to invade Iraq and for him to lie to the Senate.

Hillary is doing just fine and is a much stronger person and leader than Bush could ever dream of being.

Hillary will make a fine president and later tonight or maybe later this week, the Obama endorsement will help Hillary greatly as she moves towards November. She will win against McCain.

Hillary was 20 points ahead in TN and is also ahead Nationally. Unless people who were polled have lied, and that is always a possibility, Hillary become the Nominee and of course the next president as Republicans offer nothing.

Obama put up a huge fight! He is a good man, and his only problem is he lacks wisdom and experience compared to Hillary. He will have that in eight years and if VP Richardson is not president at that time, Obama will become president. If not, Obama is president in just 16 years from now.

Isnt it wonderful to know Hillary for eight years, Richardson for eight and then Obama for eight? WOW 24 years of Liberals. Bush really did destroy the Republican Party. LMAO

Don't vote for Hillary or Obama. Neither one can win the election. And Obama who claims to be against the war since the start seems to have had no problem campaigning for Joe Lieberman 2 years ago as did Hillary. Vote for Edwards who has only suspended his race not completely withdrawn. We need leadership not a dried up witch or someone with no experience keeps talking about change and whose only idea of change is that he changes jobs alot

FALSE

I know for a fact it is false.

Someone in my own family with pre-existing health problems has no insurance and makes too much to qualify for welfare ie over 15 thousand a year and works like a dog but still no health care.

This is just one of 40 million Nation wide and there are people out there who don't understand this.

Another 40 million middle class working families are underinsured. The make okay money but can't afford to get sick or to pay the high monthly premiums.

There are the self-employed small business owners that can't afford medical insurance.

It is a mess and it will be fixed as soon as the Republicans leave in one year.

Obama or Hillary will get the job done and provide what is a birth right for all Americans-Health care.

Survey says: They included people like Amy Lappos, a soon-to-be divorced mother of two from Seymour who is struggling to pay for child care; Carmen Colon, an executive director of the YMCA's Alpha Community Services program, which needs money to help the homeless; state Sen. Gayle Slossberg, whose 100,000 constituents include a newly divorced mother who can't afford breast cancer treatment; and Lynne Kudzey, a Stamford entrepreneur who can't grow her business because of high health care costs.

Answer: How are these problems my problems? Taxing me to cover somebodys child care? Tax the soon to be ex husband and make him repsonsible for his childrens care. Homeless? Try getting a job. There is always a job fr someeone that wants to work hard. Business grwoth stifled by healthcare? Maybe she is a bad manager. You cannot continue to blame the costs of health care for everything.

I see no reason why I should have to subsidize health insurance for people who smoke, eat at McDonald's everyday, or play their ipods so loud, their ears bleed. If we're going to have healthcare for all, fine, but everyone needs to pay an amount based on their lifestyle, similar to auto and home insurance. Otherwise, don't bother, save your breath.

We don't owe everyone in this nation universal health care, because there's no "universal job stress" in place. To get health insurance today, you either need to work your tail off running your own business, or work your tail off working for an established organization. The people who do this pay a price -- time away from family and leisure activities, time spent getting educated/trained so they can compete for and get the best jobs. I'm not sure what would be next if universal health care were put in place. Maybe a "universal 1966 E-Type Jaguar" plan? We have the capacity for universal health care today....if everyone were willing to work as hard as the hardest workers, they could all start businesses that would be successful and pay the premiums. Problem is...most people just don't want to work that hard. That's their choice, but it doesn't mean the rest of us owe them a health care plan.

Oh -- and don't get me started on how illegal aliens would figure out ways to run up the bill on universal health care if it were available -- the way they already do with border town clinics.

Maybe we should put bounties on all illegals -- offering health insurance subsidies to any U.S. citizen or person validly seeking citizenship who turns in illegals and gets them back home. The money saved by not squandering health care resources on illegals would probably pay the subsidies!
I like Edwards

Co sponsoring just means you signed onto a law. In other words all Obama has done besides run for President and go on with the inane nonsense about his "compelling background" is vote on legislation that was initiated and sponsored by others. Hardly a leader.
And by the way there have benn recent articles about the source of some of the campaign contributions that Hillary and Obama take...and a lot of it is special interest money from sleazy real estate concerns
