Healthcare reform is certainly needed in this country but what congress is trying to sell us is health Insurance reform with a huge bill attached to our backs! Health insurance reform became law in Massachusetts, raised the cost of insurance while forcing everyone to buy in or be fined and still actual health care is unimproved-it may even be worse now. Would you like to have one of your family on the same college campus or streets of Boston that my daughter is walking while spreading undiagnosed strep throat and being told by her health services to continue going to classes? Who knows how many she infected and as if that isnt bad enough, they told her they'd let her know for sure in 2 days but it took them 3 to contact her. I can't help but think that they want others to get sick as well so they can rack up additional fees and her own pain didn't matter one iota to them. How many people can one college student infect with strep in 3 days? Any guesses?

We can't have any kind of effective change in health care, without jobs, the people need jobs to pay the rent, feed their children and pay for health care. Good health care starts with good practices and emotional soundness which we will never get with the ideology of the progressive liberals. That is why we rejected Marsha Croakley, as she made it possible for sexual child abusers to run free with curling irons and all. We want the indoctrination of sexual depravity in the Public Schools to cease. Visit Also google We need competent representatives that respect and protect children, the innocents and not pander to the sex industry and drug industry. We need to get back to the basics of family and emotional health and the welfare of our country. Money is not going to solve these basic human needs, intelligent and common sense people with the heart of our country's health and welfare must be the corner stone of that breakthrough. We must stop the abortions, as it is one more pandering to big drug and sex industry. When people get honest and use truth and faith to fight the good fight, then we shall see our country rise up out of the deception and corruption. Doctor Barney's and Nurse Pelosi no more, get rid of the disease that is implementing the abuse of our systems. Get the back door policies out of our face and government. It is time for honesty and transparency and the people making sound judgments on whom will lead us, and what direction our country will take. Never mind the easy way out, it take hard work, honesty and faith, and above all Light and Truth!

Why do we keep electing these clowns. There must be some decent people out there who will skip over the games and get on with the countries business. What a mess we have made and continue to make. We deserve better but do we make the effort to elect better. No, we just keep going in the same circle again and again.

What business do you intend to do?
You voted for universal health coverage in Mass., so I'm sure you've got some good ideas for HCR like maybe single-payer?

You were "pro-choice" until "recently"

So tell us, what do you intend to do?
