Obama's plan for a healthy America
“We now face an opportunity – and an obligation – to turn the page on
the failed politics of yesterday’s health care debates.... My plan begins
by covering every American. If you already have health insurance, the
only thing that will change for you under this plan is the amount of
money you will spend on premiums. That will be less. If you are one of
the 45 million Americans who don’t have health insurance, you will have
it after this plan becomes law. No one will be turned away because of a
preexisting condition or illness.”
What if we don't want insurance? do we get a choice? where is the choice in the matter? Is government mandating everything now? Socialism FTL....
And I guess while we're at it, with Obama's plan we can ensure all of Mexico too... Lets give them another incentive to run across the border!
Protect Social Security
Obama will preserve Social Security by stopping any efforts to privatize it and working in a bipartisan way to
preserve it for future generations.
how about does not privatizing social security preserve it? Its all ready in a crisis. We have more people taking out social security than putting in. This includes our government mismanaging our money. So whats Obama's plan? Lets tax more money for social security so government can mismanage more money?
Reduce Carbon Emissions 80 Percent by 2050
Cap and Trade: Obama supports implementation of a market-based cap-and-trade system to reduce
carbon emissions by the amount scientists say is necessary: 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050. Obama’s
cap-and-trade system will require all pollution credits to be auctioned. A 100 percent auction ensures that
all polluters pay for every ton of emissions they release, rather than giving these emission rights away to coal
and oil companies. Some of the revenue generated by auctioning allowances will be used to support the
development of clean energy, to invest in energy efficiency improvements, and to address transition costs,
including helping American workers affected by this economic transition.
Confront Deforestation and Promote Carbon Sequestration: Obama will develop domestic
incentives that reward forest owners, farmers, and ranchers when they plant trees, restore grasslands, or
undertake farming practices that capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
LMAO! Pollution Credits... Next we'll have "take a shit credits"... Oh man, I can't take a shit b/c I don't have enough credits for the toilet paper.. Seriously, leave government out of regulating capitalism. Really, is Obama so stupid that he doesn't realize SUV and large truck sales have slowed to a crawl b/c of high gas prices? The market will adjust itself, hence why GM came out with the Hybrid SUV. We don't need daddy government coming in to tell the free market you must produce this product that is this efficient in order to be sold. Let the consumers change the market place.
Sounds like your Obama change is nothing but a move towards socialism and communism. Maybe Obama's plan can include what shirt, pants, and socks you put on each morning gpamp. He can have you wear pink on Monday and red on Friday. They can have so much "change
" you won't ever have to make a decision in your life again. How about that "change
