Obama was quoted as stating some people critisized him for sounding like an insurance salesman last week. I wonder if he read my blog post six days ago?
Amazingly, he sounded like one of the late night informercials that repeat the 1 (800) number about 30 times a minute. Unlike those numbers, the healthcare number gave a repeated busy signal. So the web crashes, the phone is always busy, and no one has a clue what will happen with the new law. I would bet the professor would never get a job as a salesman, but he somehow sold the majority of Americans he could be a leader. I guess some people just want to believe.

It seems that everywhere I go people are seriously worried about the state of our nation, particularly healthcare. Part of this could be because I am around folks in the 50’s and 60’s, and health is more of a factor. But a large part is being fueled be Obamacare. The fear of not being able to get qualified medical treatment, or paying more for health insurance than one’s mortgage, is deeply troubling. With healthcare comprising 20% of the US economy, a failing system could result in people losing their jobs, their homes, their financial resources, and then – their lives – as no one will want to be a doctor any more. My physical therapist told me that he was starting to bury some of his cash in the ground. He was serious – he even told me the steps he was taking to ensure that the cash didn’t get damp and moldy. Scary stuff. You tell me, do we need a revolution?
