Final Thoughts for Sunday Night....Keep Fighting for the Public Option, Lives are at Stake....


"True leadership calls for the setting-forth of the objectives AND the rallying of public opinion in SUPPORT of these objectives." FDR

All last week there is plenty posted to pass on to people to educate them on the facts about Our Healthcare Crisis...please do Twitter it, and FB it and pass it on....It is a shame that the Media has spent so much time on the Teabaggers and Death Panels and other absurd Stupid Distractions. They should have been reporting the Facts, which are dire and staggering. ( In posts below there are links to all the articles that researched this data- or email me and I will give you more links).
Facts::::
50 Million and Counting without Healthcare, 14,000 losing care per day, that is 400,000 more per month.
22,000 people are dying per year with NO Healthcare
179,000 have died without Healthcare since 2001...
500,000 People are currently fighting Cancer with NO Health Insurance after being denied Care and Treatment.
In California alone, it is estimated that more than 22% of Claims and Care are denied, and by other estimates it is closer to 40%.
62% of all bankruptcies are due to Medical Debt, People are losing homes daily due to Medical Bankruptcy, People fight Diseases should not losing their Savings and Homes due to Insurance Greed.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
When you stand at the Store or at a playground look around WHO would You refuse Care ? Anyone ? ...See for me- this is a moral issue, as a Nurse I took an Oath to Do No Harm and to never refuse Anyone Care...Ever.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Media keeps saying " The Left needs to learn to Compromise", that is not accurate, No One should be compromising on Wanting People to have Healthcare, Lives are at stake.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Do go to the Whitehouse Website and write to the President, and do call the Whitehouse 202-456-1111, and 202-456-1414...

On Bashing the"far Left",
talking out his ass-
WHO pays him-
talking about how the grassroots came out-
and the PO would hurt the business sector...

( no Gary Locke ????)

This little weasel is going on and on about how this health roll out was worse than Hillary Care of the 90's.....( gee I wonder if he is a Repug)

What was on Alters page and made me throw facts at him :::

In sum, it's great for left to push hard for a public option but if Sen. votes not there for PO (and right now they aren't), take the deal.

Greenwald is smart but a total snake--ready to screw anyone for a post and attack their motives. Am I not supposed to write an Obama book?

A PO is a good idea, but left has lost perspective. The rest of bill--universal cov,ending discrim. based on preexisting cond. --more impt.

PO or bust folks don't even know that Howard Dean's proposal in 2004 had no public option. The idea wasn't even invented til 2005.

The PO is a means to an end. Heavy regulation of the insurance industry--removing their anti-trust exemption--would help. competition.

The confusion comes from my point that "public option or bust" is a stupid position. The PO is important but not worth sinking the bill for.

My position is totally consistent: I strongly favor a public option or, failing that, what I call a "souped up" co-op.

Glenn Greenwald attacked me for flip-flopping on a public option because I need access for a book. This is his typical ad hominem tripe.
