We have a health care crisis.
I know because my President said so and he wouldn’t lie.
To solve that crisis my brave Democratic House has put forth a 16000 page Omnibus bill.
I have never read the bill.
Many congressmen who voted for it never read it.
But their staff did and the staff says its wonderful.
I trust the staff.
The problem is that many Americans aren’t trusty souls like me.
They don’t trust the government.
It seems they have been lied to in the past by both Republican and Democratic Presidents.
They have been told by congress that legislation wouldn’t do something only to find out later it did.
Or they were told the cost of a government action only to discover the cost was much , much higher.
So they don’t trust the government.
Haven’t they read the bill?
It says exactly what it says.
It would play out exactly as it would play out.
The price , at the moment, is a mere couple of trillion dollars.
So why do they keep going to those open meetings and asking stupid questions.
Of course there are no death squads in the bill. That’s that crazy Palin saying that. Ignore her.
Just because something could lead to something doesn’t mean it will.
Come on folks trust your government.
They have only your best interests at heart.
Besides when you ask those stupid questions you tick off my sister.
She thinks your really dumb and have been mislead by the crazy right.
This is the time for us to pull together.
There is a crisis here.
Either come up with a solution of your own or shut up.
Got that Republicans.
However don’t be a CEO of a company and propose other solutions.
John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods did that on the op-ed page of the Wall Street Journal. Believing that the President really wanted to hear alternative solutions.
He proposed eight actions that would cost the federal government very little to implement but that would have made a real impact on the system.
His reward for doing what a good citizen was called on to do.
Some Democratic leaders have called for a boycott of Whole Foods, his company.
But I know they had a good reason for that.
They are probably upset because he didn’t read the 16000 pages.
If he had he would know that his were not on the approved list of other ideas.
We just have to learn to trust our leaders.
Don't propose things they don't want to hear.
Got that Republicans.
There are poor people who need health care.
The President and the Democrats are ready to save them.
Get out of the way.
Trust your government.
My sister does.
