Latest email from my friend,
President Barack 0bama


Dear Friend,

If you’re like most Americans, there’s nothing more important to you about health care than peace of mind.

Given the status quo, that’s understandable. The current system often denies insurance due to pre-existing conditions, charges steep out-of-pocket fees – and sometimes isn’t there at all if you become seriously ill.

It’s time to fix our unsustainable insurance system and create a new foundation for health care security. That means guaranteeing your health care security and stability with eight basic consumer protections:

• No discrimination for pre-existing conditions
• No exorbitant out-of-pocket expenses, deductibles or co-pays
• No cost-sharing for preventive care
• No dropping of coverage if you become seriously ill
• No gender discrimination
• No annual or lifetime caps on coverage
• Extended coverage for young adults
• Guaranteed insurance renewal so long as premiums are paid

Learn more about these consumer protections at Whitehouse.gov.

Over the next month there is going to be an avalanche of misinformation and scare tactics from those seeking to perpetuate the status quo. But we know the cost of doing nothing is too high. Health care costs will double over the next decade, millions more will become uninsured, and state and local governments will go bankrupt.

It’s time to act and reform health insurance, drive down costs and guarantee the health care security and stability of every American family. You can help by putting these core principles of reform in the hands of your friends, your family, and the rest of your social network.

Thank you,
Barack Obama

HMMMMM,,,I didn't notice anything on that list that states that as an American I can still deny medical treatment AGAINST H1N1 vaccine. Now I understand why that video from Atlanta about the 5,000+ plastic coffins was there.

What has happened to our country?

Angry in MN,
Chris

Thanks for printing this. A big WOW!! came from my mouth...no kick ass negative remark at the end. As usual it seems your other commentors missed the point that I saw and came up with a totally different take on his message than I did.

I'm sure if a pandemic hits the world (as per history) Obama's healthcare plan and he shall get the blame. He's mighty handy as a scapegoat for dammed near all of our woes. I wonder if he realizes how dammed powerful he is.

You are the clever one aren't you DC? You truely know your audience.

I wonder who the people through-out history blamed when pandemics killed great numbers of them...did they blame a vaccine? Did they blame their leader? Did they blame their sins? At least we have passed the point of throwing young girls in a roaring fire or over a cliff to appease the Gods lest they let us live.

We have, right?

Did their leader (s) grow horns and fall from the heavens as an anti-christ...a satan? Did he bring the plague...the pandemic with him from heaven?

Just asking...J-

0bama now wants to work with insurance companies to cut down on medical costs by getting rid of the sick and elderly with his proposed death panels. Democrat liberals now believe they have a backdoor to the death panels through private insurance companies. One strategy that is being implemented by insurance companies use the idea of "pre-existing" conditions, that in some way or form you had the condition before you got insurance, and thus you are ineligible for treatment. Another strategy is the usage of calling treatment plans "experimental", and thus covering or treating you becomes too risky. If you don't want your sick grandmother or your little cousin with leukemia to be deemed "just too risky" to save, then please pass this on.
