Okay Mr Prez, it isn’t enough that we are forced to wear seatbelts but yet not forced to wear helmets. it isn’t enough that we are forced to buy insurance on our cars and homes. NOW you want to force us all to buy health insurance. WHEN are you going to stop forcing the people that elected you to spend more and more of our hard earned money? You already took 21 percent of my paychecks in taxes last year alone. You force property taxes on my car, bike, and home. You force me to insure those every month as well. You took my home away from me because after all the insurance and fees I wasn’t able to keep up with the increase of fees on my mortgage. Now you want to fine me for not being able to afford to insure my health. What is next? Are you going to force us to have life insurance? Are you going to force us to insure our pets? All this and yet you do NOTHING about the state of our well beings. Our roads have more holes than your claim to birth rights in Hawaii (which you still have yet to prove). Our children are still going to schools where violence and weapons are an everyday occurence. Our neighborhoods are being ravaged by gangs and violence every day. Our military is still across seas fighting forwhat?! Oil? I know that this country has come up with better power solutions that combustion engines and yet you still do nothing to conserve our resources. Why don’t you look at the REAL problems our nation is facing other that health care?! There are so many more larger problems that could have used your sway than a mandated healthcare reform! Look around at your nation and tell me honestly that what you use your power for is the right thing. Can you do it? I didn’t think so!
