LIVE Address for Health Care Reform with President Barack Obama
Posted Dec 18 2009 10:01pm
One of the biggest concerns that is facing our nation is the “new” health care reform that President Obama is trying to enact for all Americans. Many Americans are facing each day a decision we should not have to make:
Am I having a heart attack, should I go to the emergency room, the doctor?
How will I pay for an emergency room visit? The ambulance? The doctor’s bills?
Is my child’s arm really broke? What if it turns out to be just sprained then I will have a hospital bill I cannot pay?
Should I go to the doctor?
How will I pay for my medications?
I don’t have insurance, how am I going to pay for this?
My insurance company is refusing to pay for a hospital visit even though we followed their instructions? NOW what?
My family is one of the 46 million who do not have health insurance and when we did we might as well not have had insurance at all. But I digress my “story” is only 1 in millions of other Americans who are facing the same problems.
There are so many questions that come to mind when I hear news reports about Health Care Reform.
Should the government step in?
Will the health care reform really help those of us who need health care and insurance?
What will it cost?
Will this be another plan that will only adds to the debt our children are inheriting?
I do encourage each of you to do your own research, share the facts, and tell your senators and congressman what you think.
50% of 1,001 Americans in a recent poll disapproves of what is happening right now with health care. READ BELOW.
The latest ABC News-Washington Post poll of 1,001 U.S. adults found that 50 percent of the country now disapproves of the job President Obama is doing on healthcare, up 6 points from 44 percent who felt that way in July. And a minority, 49 percent, think he will be able to “make significant improvements” in the U.S. healthcare system.
Many people now believe, based on the results of the poll, that it may in fact be better to do nothing at all. A whopping 80 percent of those surveyed said the quality of their healthcare would, at best, stay the same or get worse if the healthcare system is changed.
