    I hope I can get to the White House tomorrow before the President leaves for Tampa. I’m busy writing my letter.

    Can anybody explain the difference between the corporations, the media and the government? Didn’t realize we were supposed to have faith in them.

    He forgot to finish his sentence: “and all of our men and women will come home” when there isn’t anybody left to kill.

    Are they standing and clapping because they are excited about receiving all that corporate cash? Not much clapping for reforming campaign finance.

    So… if he wants to rein in debt, apart from cutting military spending, passing a Medicare for all system will provide comprehensive high quality health care to everybody, relieve businesses and families of the costs of health care and control and decrease health care costs in a rational way.

    That bipartisan approach which worked so well for health care? Will he ever learn?

    I’m writing a letter tonight and taking it to the White House tomorrow so I can meet with the President and tell him about a better plan for health care.

    I am ashamed of this charade that passes for a government.

    The doctors, nurses and health experts who agreed to stand with the President and smile support his plan. Those who actually do have a plan and who spent the past year trying to get the President to meet with them and hear from them were excluded! Do you think he’ll meet with the Single Payer Movement (over 20 million people nationwide) now?

    In 2003, Obama said that we could have single payer when the Democrats took back the White House, the Senate and the House. What happened? The health bills in Congress are better known as the Private Health Insurance Industry Protection and Enrichment Act.

    We don’t need health insurance reform, we need health CARE reform. 62% of bankruptcies are due to medical debt and nearly 80% of those families had health insurance. Health insurers are the problem. They cause the waste of 1/3 of our health care dollars, at least $400 billion each year – enough to pay for comprehensive health care right now for all people who are uninsured and underinsured.

    Why doesn’t the government pay for college education like civilized nations do? Tax credits will only help those who can afford tuition in the first place.

    Still thinks he can pass meaningful reform with a bipartisan approach?

    If the President doesn’t accept 2nd place then please don’t accept 37th place for health outcomes in the world and 54th for fairness in financing of health care. We already have a solution for health care and the President knows exactly what it is: single payer.

    A national Medicare for all system is estimated to create 2.6 million jobs.

    He says that the worst has passed but the greatest drag on our economy and on the health and productivity of our population is from health care costs. The failure to address health care in a meaningful way will continue to allow bankruptcy and foreclosures due to medical debt will continue and wages will continue to be stagnant. Until we pass a Medicare for All health system, we cannot have economic recovery.

    I’m wondering why they all look so happy when the state of the union is poor at best. We don’t need more cheerleading.
