Healthcare Crisis – Why Not HR676 Single Payer?

For those who would argue that the HR 676 single payer is socialized plan, I would argue that health insurance companies are for-profit.  If you intend to keep the profit margins high, you deny care.    I would suggest for those that hold the position that healthcare services should not be  socialized, (ooohh! scary word, defined – tax aprobation) to reconsider!

Healthcare should not be for sale!   Only those who can afford it are allowed to live?!?  People are dying everyday at the hands of for-profit insurance companies!  People are dying everyday because they can’t afford health insurance!   People are dying everyday because they can’t afford available treatment.  These are not a few, they are thousands, they are growing in masses every day, and they are your loved ones.   They are your neighbors, your co-workers and your relatives…

I ask for your support, so please write, phone, or visit your federal, state and community representatives and encourage an open and honest dialogue on single payer HR 676.  (LINK)  The time is now and your support is essential to stop the unecessary deaths of thousands!

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi – Corrupt, Fact or Fiction?

It seems about two thirds of the e-mail’s I receive these days are all political biased garbage being forwarded to either help or hinder ones agenda on a person or subject.   I sometimes delete them, other times I do futher research to see the truth, or lack of behind them.   In this case, it appears there may be some truth to the matter. 

And just maybe a vote to Cindy Sheehan is a really good choice -Yes!

The below is one such e-mail by an unknown author.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s home district includes San Francisco.   Star-Kist Tuna’s headquarters are in San Francisco, Pelosi’s home district.   Star-Kist is owned by Del Monte Foods and is a major contributor to Pelosi.   Star-Kist is the major employer in American Samoa employing 75% of the Samoan workforce.
Paul Pelosi, Nancy’s husband, owns $17 million dollars of Star-Kist stock. In January 2007 when the minimum wage was increased from $5.15 to $7.25, Pelosi had American Samoa exempted from the increase so Del Monte would not have to pay the higher wage. This would make Del Monte products less expensive than their competition’s. Last week when the huge bailout bill was passed, Pelosi added an earmark to the final bill adding $33 million dollars for an economic development credit in American Samoa.
Pelosi says …Republicans are corrupt.   She should know.  

Washington is corrupt, as is Wall Street!  Please VOTE !
