Healthcare Reform Gets 1.1 Million Co-Signers; Protests Continue

1.1 million Americans co-signed with Barack Obama the healthcare reform bill, Healthcare for All.

Mine was but one.

And this month boxes upon boxes of signatures of grateful Americans were presented to President Obama, in essence saying this: H-E-Double Hockey Sticks Yeah!

Here it is from the Obama for America folks:

Now contrast that to the Americans who showed up to town hall meetings this past weekend, Americans who apparently resent the fact that healthcare will soon be there for them to take advantage of, or not.

Here is how Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz handled one of these naïve questioners at her April 5th town hall meeting.

Frankly, the extent that Americans will go to deny themselves something that we have tried to get for ourselves for 100 years amazes me. If this joker doesn’t want healthcare, so be it. On the other hand, when someone rear ends him while he is waiting for some nuns to finish crossing the street in front of his pickup truck, and he shows up at the emergency room with head and neck injuries, but without health insurance, guess who pays.

Yep, you and me.
