Since President Obama was elected by the people of this great country and is supposed to act in their best interests, I have a challenge for him.
I challenge him to write his version of the health-care bill that fills his needs. Write this in official language so that the Congressional Budget Office can put accurate dollars to its cost.
When this is done, ask the Republican side of Congress to do the same. Make both bills/CBO estimates available for the public to read and understand.
Then, take some money from the unspent billions from his stimulus package and use this money to fund a nationwide vote by all eligible voters on which bill they approve!
It's time to put our tax dollars where his mouth is!
Let the people who elected him have a voice in their health care.
Believe it or not, a vast majority of us can walk and chew gum at the same time! The charge of illiteracy is greatly exaggerated, and we are capable of making decisions regarding our welfare!
When a winner is chosen, Obama should see to it that no earmarks or riders are attached, and he should pledge to sign the bill as is!
