Dump Arizona Congresswoman Giffords and Vote for Obama for Prez

I watched Michael Moore’s film Sicko about the health care industry in America. Have you seen it? It’s a must-see. I was so embarrassed to be American to know that we turn away people who need health care, pay doctors to stamp “DENIED” on insurance claims and instead allow CEOs of health insurance companies to make billions in salary. This is a national OUTRAGE!

And our little congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords wants it to continue. She is opposed to HR 676 which would reform our health care system. She needs to be fired. Do NOT vote for her. Call her office now and demand that as a democrat she has an obligation to the people, not to preserving a DEEPLY flawed, capitalistic system that has created cracks and swept 50 million people into them.

Her office number is: (520) 881-358. Call her now. Or write her an email through her website.

ALSO – I am not supporting Hillary for Prez as she has been taking major contributions from the health care lobby.

Here’s Obama’s position on health care:

Barack Obama’s Plan

Quality, Affordable and Portable Coverage for All

  • Obama’s Plan to Cover Uninsured Americans: Obama will make available a new national health plan to all Americans, including the self-employed and small businesses, to buy affordable health coverage that is similar to the plan available to members of Congress. The Obama plan will have the following features:
    1. Guaranteed eligibility. No American will be turned away from any insurance plan because of illness or pre-existing conditions.
    2. Comprehensive benefits. The benefit package will be similar to that offered through Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP), the plan members of Congress have. The plan will cover all essential medical services, including preventive, maternity and mental health care.
    3. Affordable premiums, co-pays and deductibles.
    4. Subsidies. Individuals and families who do not qualify for Medicaid or SCHIP but still need financial assistance will receive an income-related federal subsidy to buy into the new public plan or purchase a private health care plan.
    5. Simplified paperwork and reined in health costs.
    6. Easy enrollment. The new public plan will be simple to enroll in and provide ready access to coverage.
    7. Portability and choice. Participants in the new public plan and the National Health Insurance Exchange (see below) will be able to move from job to job without changing or jeopardizing their health care coverage.
    8. Quality and efficiency. Participating insurance companies in the new public program will be required to report data to ensure that standards for quality, health information technology and administration are being met.
