Yes We Did: President Obama Signs Health Care Reform Legislation

President Obama has signed the health care legislation into law as the Senate plans to begin considering the fixes also voted upon by House. Conservative heads continue to explode with ridiculous claims of socialism and government take over of health care. How come the components of health care reform are being called socialism this year by right wingers, but they weren’t called socialism when proposed by the Heritage Foundation and the Republican Party in 1993?

Is  there anyone who still wants to claim that either Barack Obama or the Congressional Democrats are not effective?

    Not one day in anyone’s life is an uneventful day, no day without profound meaning, no matter how dull and boring it might seem, no matter whether you are a seamstress or a queen, a shoeshine boy or a movie star, a renowned philosopher or a Down’s syndrome child.
    Because in every day of your life, there are opportunities to perform little kindnesses for others, both by conscious acts of will and unconscious example.
    Each smallest act of kindness – even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile – reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it’s passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.
    Likewise, each small meanness, each thoughtless expression of hatred, each envious and bitter act, regardless of how petty, can inspire others, and is therefore the seed that ultimately produces evil fruit, poisoning people whom you have never met and never will.
    All human lives are so profoundly and intricately entwined – those dead, those living, those generations yet to come – that the fate of all is the fate of each, and the hope of humanity rests in every heart and in every pair of hands.
    Therefore, after every failure, we are obliged to strive again for success, and when faced with the end of one thing, we must build something new and better in the ashes, just as from pain and grief, we must weave hope, for each of us is a thread critical to the strength – the very survival – of the human tapestry.
    Every hour in every life contains such often-unrecognized potential to affect the world that the great days for which we, in our dissatisfaction, so often yearn are already with us; all great days and thrilling possibilities are combined always in THIS MOMENTOUS DAY!
    Excerpt from Dean Koontz’s book, “From the Corner of His Eye”.
    It embodies the idea of how the smallest of acts can have such a profound effect on each of our lives.

    This a great day for all Americans, and a message to small minded bigots everywhere they are not running the country.

    The bill has some validation in that many people will be helped due to their not having medical insurance
