For The People

Today was a historic moment for the citizens of the United States. Our President, Barak Obama, signed the Health Insurance Reform Bill into law. This will make insurance affordable for millions of uninsured citizens. This has been a long time coming and a desperately needed one. This legislation has many items that will be a boost to the lives of Americans starting this year. Especially for our children. This is a progressive bill with preventive measures. This is finally a start to better health for this country, both physically and mentally.

Once again we are part of the Democratic history of passing legislation that will help people and deter abuses by those whose bottom line is profit only. The Democrats can now add this to their list of accomplishments along with Medicare, Social Security and Civil Rights. This governing body of Democrats have secured those rights, not privilege, to ensure that we have access to good health in order to have "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."

Our government is in place to protect our rights, not destroy them.
Unfortunately, the Republicans have behaved in a very unseemly way.
Instead of working in a bipartisan way with Democrats, they choose to show their true colors. Their anger, at not being able to protect the very corporations that have worked consistently to drain the life out of this country,is evident.
What did they do over these last few decades to ensure good health for their constituents and the rest of the country? Absolutely nothing!
Especially over the last 8 years of Republican rule when they could have
implemented Health reform. Absolutely Nothing!
They prefer status quo.

So today,with no representative of the Republican party at this historic signing, history will record it as so.

What a milestone we have reached!
The first African- American President has brought us Health Reform.

God Bless the President Obama,VP Biden and the Democrats.
God Bless this great country!

BRAVO to you for this post.... I am sticking with Obama through thick and thin, I believe he is the intelligence this country has long needed. Critics aside, the man has class and gives me goosebumps with his speeches. Granted, everyone has faults, but overall I feel he is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't when facing the overwhelming racism and bias that faces him from within the borders of this country. Only time will tell, and something tells me he is going turn things around dramatically before leaving office.
