Get Well: President Obama Fights the Growing War in the U.S.

- By Bossip Staff

Our President Obama has many fronts to fight during his term. He is addressing the Health Care Crisis we have right here in this country:

The United States is fighting enemies in Iraq, Afghanistan and extremist cells around the world, but there is a much deadlier domestic threat facing President Barack Obama. It’s the fact that nearly 50 million Americans haven’t got enough money to see a doctor when they’re sick. By one government estimate 18,000 people die unnecessarily for lack of medical care every year, many times more than terrorists or soldiers target. “Our healthcare system is broken,” Obama said this week. Most industrialized countries addressed the problem decades ago, but the U.S. is determined to avoid the most common remedy — a government healthcare or health insurance system.

The U.S. already has government insurance to pay for the poor and the elderly. But to a lot of Americans, especially Republicans, extending that protection to everyone else seems like “socialism.” They don’t trust Washington to handle their health. So most Americans pay for healthcare privately, usually with insurance purchased where they work. If they can’t pay, they don’t get it. The result is an enormous, profitable and powerful industry that has successfully fought reform. Obama isn’t really trying to change the system. He wants to find a way to enlarge it, to get insurance for the millions who don’t have it. The president has a plan and met with Congressional Democrats this week, urging them to write it into law by the end of the year.

Several presidents have tried before and failed, but the politics may be more promising now. With the economy in such deep trouble, more Americans are afraid of losing their job and the healthcare that comes with it. Some medical organizations and industries have also announced that this time, they’ll cooperate.

That leaves one big problem. Washington would have to find a lot of money: by most estimates, well more than a trillion dollars in the first 10 years. Obama’s administration is already spending and borrowing record amounts.

People around the world remember some of Obama’s big promises — to withdraw from Iraq and close Guantanamo Bay. But healthcare reform will actually have a much bigger impact on most U.S. voters and they are expecting the president to deliver.

Please knock this one out the park Mr. President. It is long overdue.(cough)

    You are absolutely correct. I always found it weird that military can basicaly practice any field without a degree. As long as they stay on the base that is. But , I will say say this. The military doctors will focus on a quick and easy way (most time efficient) to help and cure the soldiers and their families. It’s inspiring, that’s what military is, inspiring.

    Black Friday. I am going to keep it Christian. You have to understand the metaphor. I could use Best Buy, Walgreens, or any manager of a franchise.
    Would that make you feel a little better. For the sake of the discussion and to keep it consistent to the words of Krs-One I used Burger Kings. But for you to understand let me use another example.

    You can only drive a car according to how it is built. You can’t drive a car 200mphs if it only goes 110 mph. You can drive your car up a mountain if it is not built to drive up a mountain. With that being said, the elite people of this country have gave selected control to Barack Obama and all of other presidents. They only have limited power, and they have to carry out the agenda of the people who put them in power.

    I know you will not agree with me, but I just wanted to clarify that I used Burger King as an example, not as USA exact equal. I thought you’d peep the concept, but I’m sorry I was misinformed.

    Simple is as simple does.

  • always knew

    Uh, I hate to break it to you, but he is telling the truth about KRS-one……

    I disagree with Obama on many fronts, but you still have to choose from lesser evils…

    @Czasharp- nice thinking post and even better analogy- Burger King.

    Truth. But noone will come forward to stop it.

    Choose the least amount of evil that will harm you…

    😦

  • always knew

    obama deception is real

    you’d be a fool to think otherwise..

    but I still heart Michelle and Barack..

    @ CZASHARP…. YOUR INTELLIGENCE IS QUESTIONNABLE???? YOU MAKE IT SOUND LIKE PREZ OBAMA IS BEING MANIPULATED AND TOLD BY THE SUPPOSEDLY “ELITE CLASS” (WHITE MAN)TO ACT LIKE YOU ARE THE PRESIDENT BUT WE STILL CONTROL HOW WHEN, WHERE, AND WHAT BECAUSE HE IS BLACK????? EVERYONE KNOWS WHERE THERE IS WEALTH, OIL, DIAMONDS, LAND THE WHITE MAN HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE TO STEAL IT….. BUT THEY NOT ONLY CONTROL THIS COUNTRY BECAUSE HE IS BLACK, THEY ALSO DID THIS WITH PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY AND HIS BROTHER BOBBY WHO WAS ASSASSINATED WHEN HE WAS RUNNING FOR PRES. OF THE UNITED STATES!!!!! SO BEING BLACK DOESN’T MAKE PREZ OBAMA’S POSITION LESS POWERFUL IF ANYTHING IT MAKES HIM MORE POWERFUL BECAUSE OF HIS HISTORIC WIN HAS BEEN RECOGNIZED WORLDWIDE BY PEOPLE OF ALL RACES AND COLORS…. HE HAS BOUGHT SO MANY PEOPLE TOGETHER WITH POSITIVE & GENUINE RACIAL COHESIVENESS THAT NO OTHER PRESIDENT HAS EVER HAD SUCH A HIGH APPROVAL **** RATING…. BESIDES HAVING ACCOMPLISHED SO MUCH IN ALMOST FIVE MONTHS; THAT THE LAST PRESIDENT HASNTEVEN COME CLOSE IN HIS EIGHT YEARS IN OFFICE!!!! HE IS TAKING ON SOOOO MUCH WHICH WOULD EXHAUST OR WEAR MOST OF US DOWN!!!! SO TO SAY WHAT HE IS DOING IS MEANINGLESS BECAUSE HE IS BEING GUIDED BY THE WHITE MAN IS INSULTING!!! ANYONE WHO HAS FOLLOWED THIS MAN CAN SEE HE IS NOT THE TYPE OF INDIVIDUAL TO DO AS I SAY AND NOT AS I DO TYPE OF INDIVIDUAL!!! PEOPLE NEED TO STOP ASSUMING THAT HE IS JUST A HOUSE —— YOU KNOW THE SAYING!!! HE IS THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT ELECTED TO DO A JOB!!!! AND A GOOD ONE HE’S DOING πŸ™‚

    @leave-it-be:
    What these people don’t understand is that Obama doesn’t get his power from some “elite class” pulling strings. He gets his power from the people. Having the people/voters behind you gives an enormous amount of power. The people in the “dark corners” trying to call shots have to go along with him or risk being made famous when he exposes them the world. KRS-1 is an idiot. Those bs conspiracy theories don’t stand up to any reasonable amount of scrutiny. Thats why everybody spitting sounds like an idiot. It takes very little effort to debunk all of their claims.

    I am happy 2 see a President that finally cares. It is about time.

  • FYI

    Obama is bi-racial not just black. Give credit for both races and not just one.
