Watching the tea party today made me smile. I'm not the only one who has big questions about government run health care. Why is everything so vague? When I think about Obama's campaign, nothing was ever explained. His platform was "change," and he's certainly lived up to that. But I didn't vote for him because I wanted to know what changes he had in mind. So far, I don't care much for the alternations, and I certainly am not going to throw my support behind government run health care until I know how it will work, where the money is coming from and how it will affect me and my family. How can people blindly follow without those answers. Nothing is free folks...haven't you figured that out?
All I know is I'm not falling for the lie, "If you like your present health care, you can keep it." I retired from the University of California, and we all know the state is in dire straits. How likely is it that UC will continue to dish out $$$ for my health insurance if they can dump me into a "free" government run program. If Obama becomes the Surgeon General, then I'm screwed. I like my health care, but I won't have say in the matter, trust me.
Our President is a smooth talker, but he poses lots of "solutions" without explanation. I'm a big picture person, so I need facts.
