I think this is a great sum up of my position on healthcare reform. Why are the people who’s salary is paid by our tax dollars denying to the american people what they all insist on having for themselves. Whoopie Goldberg has the solution, everyone call, write, fax congress and tell them “I want what you got”.
My response to posting on Dailykos, ” The Treason of the Senate: Bill Moyers explains who really owns America”
Bill Maher talked about it on his show Friday. Some of the founding fathers felt the senate was not necessary and only the house was needed because it was more representative.
It is so funny that you posted this blog today because I was just pondering doing a blog about what we are seeing in our time. I think we are really witnessing the collapse of a great empire. This diary has articulated what I have been debating with friends and co-workers about for years. This diary touched me to the core because it is so difficult trying to explain to people that slavery is not dead just transformed. I have already blogged about the work week, and how the American lifestyle is not conducive to a healthy family, because parents are taken away from the home chasing the American dream.
Whether working for a prestigious hospital chain or a major corporation, I could not shake the feeling of being on a plantation. I could not stop thinking about the time I was spending away from home and how it was hurting me and my family. I knew I was missing out on crucial time with my daughter, and had less time for self reflection and development.
I just worked for a major fortune five hundred company. A company that made billions of dollars per year but we did not have a place to hang our coats. When I complained they wheeled out a steel closet that could hold about five coats for an office of about one hundred people. I was the only one who thought something was wrong with that.
The problem is that many of the union leadership have also sold out to the corporations and have grown accustomed to the glamour and glitzy side of politics and have forgotten the people they were elected to represent.
I have been contemplating whether is should put up some of my writings while I was working for this major corporation. Some of the grievances I have had to file while in their enslavement. This diary has assisted in making that decision.
Thanks for the diary
Steven Colbert had another great idea. Since the members of congress are denying the American people a public option even though there is overwhelming support throughout the country for it, Mr. Colbert suggested that we send our medical bills to Max Baucus office. I think it’s a great idea so I have posted Max Baucus Washington office information. Feel free to extend it to your local representatives. Some have suggested that faxing might be better; it is a clever way to join the debate.
Sen. Max Baucus
