Catherine Bragg is a small business owner in California, and on 8.31.09 she attended a townhall meeting with her non-representative, Lynn Woolsey, where she voiced her opinion about healthcare reform and received a standing ovation. On The Record interviewed her yesterday, and she was able to expand on what happened after she made her statement to her non-rep.
I want my representatives to get out of the way, they created the mess, they are the ones legislating it in California, they can fix this if they just open it up to competition.
I have been saying since before the fiasco on 11.4.08 that small business drives the economy of this country, and still NO ONE in our elitist government has done ANYTHING to help small businesses across the country.
A message for the House and Senate, (because I know you are here), the uproar is not going to stop, and now we are coming on 9.12.09.
Remember the letter Glenn Beck read that was addressed to our government from another small business owner?
I wonder how long it is really going to take for Horton To Hear The Whos?
Not that I love the Democrats’ plan, but insurance companies are competing now, aren’t they? How are those premiums doing for you as they limit services, retroactively declare a procedure “not covered” and not allow people who are sick to get insurance? (Which I thought was supposed to be there if you were sick??)
InsightAnalytical, if they allow health insurance companies to cross state lines it will provide tons of competition. This is what we need. The competition will encourage better coverage and price wars.
I have been self employed for 19 years. I used to have a catastrophic policy, but that ceased to exist about 6 years ago. It has gotten more and more difficult to be self employed. I have not had employees for 6 years because it is just too much of a hassle and I am in a field where I am able to pick and choose the jobs that I can do myself. Do to the economy, these have come fewer and fewer in the last year or so because people do not have money to spend.
Government needs to get out of the way and let us do what we do best, but, alas, this is not the plan. “THEY” are putting THEIR endgame into motion, and we do not stand a chance. I will never be made to believe that THEY are stupid and do not know what THEY are doing. THEY are fully aware of the results of their actions. “Conspiracy nut” I am called, but I prefer the term, “realist”. I see the realitiy of what THEY are doing. I live in the real world. I feel the pain of the things THEY are doing to the little businesses and the little people,
Fasten your seat belts folks, the ride is just beginning.
WELL,WELL,WELL…one commie czar down, 39 to go! Looks like ALIBAMA’S “Greenie Weenie” czar Van “I’m a commie” Jones was thrown under the bus! Could it be from the pressure from the oposition?
