Is Health Care Reform Really Dead?

Health Care dying

Well, well, well...Maybe we can't after all, if we're to read into President Obama's seemingly somber tone with regard to Health Care Reform legislation:

"... if Congress decides we're not going to do it, even after all the facts are laid out, all the options are clear, then the American people can make a judgment as to whether this Congress has done the right thing for them or not,"

Defeatism at its finest.

Barry H., sincerely-- what the 'F'? I have to say this, and I like you a lot...I think you really messed this up. BIG time. And there was NO NEED for it! You and the other DUMB-ocrats allowed the GOP to control the debate with crazy propaganda and lies-- LIES!!! The "Summer of Death" of 2009 was aptly named, not only for the celebrities that died, but for Health Care Reform as well.

The momentum is gone, ladies and gentlemen. Looks like we have just witnessed the latest president's failure to bring affordable health care to the masses. And you know what the worst thing of all is? We ALL should take the blame for this. When I say "all", I mean everyone that voted for Obama. That's right, I said it.

People get too caught up "in the moment", and do not carry that momentum through to fruition. Electing Barack Obama should have only been the beginning of the work required to bring real change to America. The problem is that when the streamers and confetti have fallen, and the champagne bottles are empty...everyone goes home. Practically no one is interested in doing the unglamorous work that lies ahead. It's all "Good, we got him elected!! Let's go home!!" No. That's where you ALL are to blame. You all expected this man to do EVERYTHING. And when you leave all of your problems up to one man to solve, guess what happens? NOTHING. That's what's happened here.

We are seeing all this happen to the teabaggers right now. What started as a somewhat grassroots effort (propagated by Fox News and Glenn Beck) has been whittled away to nothing but fringe groups and corporate takeovers. Why? Because the people's passion burned out. There's only so far you can ride out on anger and posters and crappy costumes. After a while, you have to have a consistent and persistent point to take away. The only thing I ever really understood about the teabaggers is that they're pissed at Obama because he's a socialist and blah-blah-blah. That made it easy for the GOP, who themselves are falling apart, to try to co-opt those people to convert them into votes to use...against Obama.

Health Care Reform will die as the passion dies. I mean, with American Idol and Lost starting their new seasons, who will have time? And what about jobs? And what about the three wars we have going on? Or is it one war in three countries? My brain hurts. I guess what I'm really wondering is...are we going okay with putting our lives and livelihood into the hands of inept politicians? Are we all really, seriously, leaving it all up to them? Are we depending on Obama to handle these people all by himself? And if so, why didn't we help him AT LEAST be electing the right officials? Do we really expect him to get anything done with DUMB-ocrats and Re-PUNK-blincans?

It's true-- if we really want to get anything done, we have to take matters into our own hands. It's not enough to just get these people elected and walk away. We ALL need to take more of an interest in what happens in our country. It's clear, to see the way these clowns operate, that the American People do not care enough. And if we are putting all of our faith into this lot, we'll get what we deserve; NOTHING.
