"There's a dawning recognition of the significance of this, both on policy and political grounds," White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said. "At a certain point, winning is winning."
You know me. I am not "political" in my posts. Usually. The comment above says it all concerning the push to give me what I do not want--"free" health care. It seems to me in my opinion, this whole debacle has been more about winning than anything else. I have told you all in the past about the health care ministry/sharing group we are part of. I have told you it works. We are debt free. Over $100,000 of bills, paid for.
I believe I should have the choice-- to do what I want with health care for me, for my husband, for my children.
Does this sound familiar? It's the platform for abortion--- for slogans like- it's my body, my choice. Or some would say, I don't believe in abortion but I think women should have a right to choose.
Now, I get my choice taken away for my own healthcare but I get to pay for a woman's right to choose..(it's in the bill people). I believe that is wrong. It makes me very angry!! We are all losing, big time, to a government that is more concerned about power and prestige than people.
Like Mr. White House Chief of Staff said, "At a certain point, winning is winning."
God have mercy on us....
