Today, President Barack Obama signed historic legislature for the talked-about health care reform. Personally, I'm stoked that the United States have taken a socialist step. Is that what they're so terrified of? There are already 14 states that have filed lawsuits, citing the reform as "unconstitutional". Of the people that are truly opposed to equal access to health care to everyone, I'd be willing to bet my next paycheck that these are people wealthy enough to afford private health insurance. Everyone deserves the peace of mind of being able to have access to even the most basic of health care options. No one should be denied health care simply because they cannot afford it. So many Americans have destroyed their credit simply because they got sick. Unpaid medical bills will ruin even a middle class American. The legislature may not be perfect, but it's a step in the right direction. I'm anxious to see what kind of "sound arguments" the Republicans come up with to repeal the reform. Their argument that it's "unconstitutional" is the most infuriating response possible. As per that argument, it would be "unconstitutional" to harness stricter gun laws, as "every American has the right to own a firearm". Well, we all know how well that's worked out. Look at the murder rate in the USA via gunshot. Look at the number of school shootings. The saddest part about a school shooting is the word "school" in that phrase. Children have access to guns, when they shouldn't. So as per your "constitution", give the kids a gun, send them off to their public school where art & physical education programs are being cut, serve them hot dogs, biscuits with gravy and 2 litres of coke for lunch, and then when they either get shot by the quiet kid at school, or have a heart attack at the age of 25 from their overwhelming obesity, let them suffer and die because their 7$ an hour Piggly Wiggly job won't pay for the hospital bills. Oh, I forgot, they should do all of this while hanging an American flag in their window and volunteering to go fight someone else's war in Iraq. President Obama has followed through on the promise he was elected for. Shut up, and enjoy your health care!
