Right before our lawmakers is the health care reform bill. I have always been a supporter of universal healthcare in this country. Why does it seem to work in countries like Canada and England then it takes me back to the movie, "Sicko" by Michael Moore.
I have a feeling that Republicans are stalling things so that it will die a slow death. Of course, they are the main opponents of the bill. It seems to be a concern with Democrats and Republicans alike that they want to take more time to study its cost and benefits. They also are pushing for a delay until they return from summer recess in September. However, President Obama has stressed that he wants to have the final vote before August. Their argument is they don't want to act hastily because the end result could be very disasterous for the American people. There has to be some sort of happy medium for both sides. Our health care system is a mess and sorely needs an overhaul. This would be a good place to start.
