Democrats, Liberals and Progressives
Stop The Madness
My Liberal, Democrat and Progressive friends, I am so disappointed in how everyone is out in cyberland and on cable TV snipping at each other and at our bodies in the US Congress as well as President Obama and his Administration.
So many negative articles, TV appearances and now TV ADs against them. All I am hearing is "Kill The Bill" "Don't Vote For The Bill, Unless It Have A Public Option." President Obama promised us a Public Option, is coming from most Liberal Sites, TV and Emails. Well no, he did not run on a Public Option. He ran on an Exchange, one like the Senate and Government Employees have. He have always said he agree that a Public Option would help save the government and citizens money. But he did not promise to get a Public Option. Desiring something is not the same as "Yeah I'm gonna get this."
No bill coming out of the House or the Senate is going to be perfect. Because each and every, over 500 Representatives we have is going to look out for their state and constituents. As they should. That is what they was sent to Washington DC to do. So every bill is going to look different, and come as close to the center as it can, to accommodate millions of people.
Presidents and Senators also Congressmen/women have been fighting for over a 100 years to get healthcare reform done through the house and senate. Now that we are one hair away from passing a historic bill with mega reforms to the Insurance Industry, you are are hollering to kill it. Not good, and I say no way. And to top that off, it's not the final bill. The House and Senate still have to come together to merge both bills into one that they all can agree with and vote yes on. So why is everyone acting a fool?
No one is going to get everything they want. No way, no how. Someone is going to be upset, mad or angry. People to get this done "The Final Bill" it is going to require compromise from everyone involved. What the Democratic Senators and House members need now is our support, maybe some urging and nudging. But the negative talk, the dissing the President (who is working his ass off behind the scenes) all of this have to stop. This is what the Republicans want, is for all of us to self destruct. And from the looks of things they just may get their wish. So Stop The Madness. Help our President.
Don't and Stop dogging him.
It took 8 years of hard work to get another Democratic President into office. You all want everything done NOW. That is stupid when the President has only been in office 11 months.
Give the man a break. With this economic climate, it's lucky we got any kind of Healthcare Bill at all. And he have used mega political capital to try to get the bills passed. And you all are still ungrateful. These are some words I remember from President Obama's election night speech.
President Obama said Election Night.
There will be setbacks and false starts, that statement will always be with me.
That night President Obama called to action a nation. A nation that was in economic trouble. A Healthcare system broken, 2 wars that was out of control. A prison used as bait to recruit terrorist. Needing to be closed. Saving Jobs, Homes, Banks, Car Companies, Banking regulations, Energy Regulation, etc I could go on and on. He asked America for help to get these things done. He knew it was not going to be easy. He knew it was going to be hard. And he took the job anyway. He stood up and took the challenge to help put this country back on track. He need our help, not all the criticism from his own party. He have enough of that with the congress and the senate, not helping him. And some of them just want face time on TV. But the Republicans and the Wingnuts are out in full force. And the news media all of a sudden after 8 years decided to start doing their jobs, and still not so well.
So America, our President need us. He can't accomplish all these hurdles by himself. He need our help. He don't need pushing, he know what needs to be done. And have put excellent people in place to do it. He need Liberals, Democrats and Progressives to get up off our ass from the computers, and cable TV and march on Washington, so our Senators and Congressmen/women can see what the real Americans that put them in office want and need for them to do. So stop the divisions among ourselves. And start this new 2010 with a new spirit of calibration together. Nothing can get done with all the division.
