Reform or No Reform…

Posted by joyinhome on December 23, 2009

That is the question.

If no reform is passed, we better all pray that our families and friends stay healthy. 

They’re voting again today. A third 60-vote of the Dems would push healthcare reform through to a Christmas Eve vote which would require a simple majority. If we get there, it’s not out of danger yet, however. Not even close.

After Christmas Eve, it would have to be merged with the House Bill and there are some differences, oh say like that pesky government option, a payment plan and, dare I say it, ABORTION.

It’s not perfect, but I think it’s safe to say that if we don’t get something passed, it will be decades before we get close again. Meanwhile, women and families are disproportionately affected.

People get sick, go broke and die everyday because they are uninsured, under-insured or drop coverage because they could no longer afford it. These are people who work hard everyday just like me.
