June 28, 2012 was a very exciting day for me just to know that America might finally have an affordable health care plan. And at the same time we have the Republican Party and their man that they have chosen to be our president that are bound and determined to destroy what Obama has accomplished.
This man must be ashamed of America to keep his holdings and his accomplishments off-shore of America. And he only pays 13 percent in federal income tax, while at the same time the American workers are paying 30 to 40 percent. I ask myself why would I vote for a man that will not pay his fair share of income tax that would help the U.S. economy? His health care is paid by you, the taxpayer. Yet he refuses you and me a federal plan.
He will spend millions to be our president. We all know that the rich need the poor as much as the poor need the rich. Are we not all Americans? One nation under God with liberty and justice for all? Or do we just say that, so the rest of the world can hear us?
Let us face the truth, what is Social Security? What is Medicare? What is any federal pension? Call it what you want. I do not know one senior or government official that does not love it. I have not heard one person say it is socialism and I will not accept it.
So all of you people that vote against Obama’s health care plan, please don’t accept Medicare or Social Security. Leave it it for those that need it, and is greatly appreciated.
I would like to ask you, how many of us have worked for a company five to 25 years and have lost our job for some reason? And now we can no longer afford our health plan. Is that fair to you and your family? I have here in Placerville a daughter and son-in-law that for 25 years have paid $950 to $1,450 a month for health care. Now that work is so slow, they can no longer afford health care.
And to think that these CEOs of insurance companies are still receiving millions in bonuses. I ask again is this the America that I was taught that is of the people, by the people and for the people? I would like to remind America that this man did not think it was right for Obama to save General Motors or Chrysler. My question is, is this man a true American? I have to believe that he would have just let the American auto market go. Some of us think because he is a good business man that he would make a good president. Maybe if he paid his employees a better wage, he would not be so rich. Otherwise share the wealth with America instead of hoarding everything to himself. I don’t know about you. Myself, I like a man that has America at heart, and not his pocketbook.
