The way of the democratic Party is to hide what they’re doing from the very people who voted them into office. Here they’re hiding the fact that the health care bill will cost the American taxpayers much more than they’re willing to pay, that is if the taxpayers really knew what is in the bill. By the democrats not wanting you to read the bill should send up the biggest red flag we’ve ever seen. Its going to hurt the poor and middle income more than you think. I wonder if the black people understand that it will hurt them also and that Obama and the democrats in congress does not care as long as they get what they want. Obama isn’t for the poor whites and blacks, he’s for the elites of this country.
We whites and blacks need to come together and defeat this high costing health care bill that yes all our children will be paying for until they’re middle age adults if not longer. I know you mothers out there reading this be you black or white loves your children more than that!
