Abortion a 'Distraction' - Health Care

When asked about the issue of the proposed health care bill containing provisions to cover the cost of abortions, President Obama stated:

"What I think is important, at this stage, is not trying to micromanage what benefits are covered. Because I think we're still trying to get a framework. And my main focus is making sure that people have the options of high quality care at the lowest possible price.

As you know, I'm pro choice. But I think we also have a tradition of, in this town, historically, of not financing abortions as part of government funded health care. Rather than wade into that issue at this point, I think that it's appropriate for us to figure out how to just deliver on the cost savings, and not get distracted by the abortion debate at this station."

Lets see, to distract from something by definition:

1. to draw away or divert, as the mind or attention

2. to disturb or trouble greatly in mind; beset

3. to provide a pleasant diversion for; amuse

4. to separate or divide by dissension or strife.

That's the trouble with the entire health care bill process.

No one has read it. No one knows what's in it, how we are to pay for it, if it will affect timely treatments, who will have access to our medical records, and loads of other questions.

And to top it off, killing babies and who will pay for it is a DISTRACTION!

Look, I know the attraction is there when someone says 'Here is something for FREE', but nothing is for free.

It seems that everyone is waiting for that great Obama hand-out. Everyone wants to 'get theirs', get there share at the expense of someone else.

We are all in this together. That great hand-out isn't coming and it really shouldn't.

Remember that saying from President Kennedy?

"Ask NOT what your country can do for you, ask what YOU can do for your country".

I wonder if they teach that in school anymore.

President Obama is indeed dynamic. He can turn a phase and say things that can whip up a crowd.

But saying things you want to hear isn't necessarily telling you the truth.

When you have someone telling you that the proposed health care bill is meant to help everyone, what about the unborn, what about the elderly (Health care bill pgs: 425-430)?

Are they a distraction?

When you have someone telling you that it won't cost the middle class anything, what's the cost to our morality (Abortion, 2270)

To put it in TRANSFORMER language "The Decepticon's are here amoung us, we must mobilize for battle"

All humor aside, this is serious stuff, don't just sit back and do nothing. Call your representative, legislators, friends and family members.

Health care diffinitly needs reform, let just make sure we know what we're getting before it's voted on.

One doesn't jump off a ledge and hope the the ground isn't that far. Hope won't save you if it's a cliff.

This is not 'The Price is Right'

"I'll take Free Health Care and whatever else is behind door number 2"... you could end up with a donkey.

This illusion of free hand-outs is exactly that, an illusion.

If it's too good to be true, it probably is.
