Last nights monumental Health Care Bill vote in the US House of Representatives has opened the door to a new future for American lifestyle and care: Insurance Groups and their Pharmaceutical patrons have fought a grueling battle trying to prevent the government from forcing control and justice for poor and uninsured people with preconditioned illness to access a fair share in a doctors office, hospital and financed long-term care. This care has to include correct nutrition!
Surely the details to this bill will be fought out in State and Government courts for years to come, bringing to the forefront the unsolved dilemma about illegal immigrants and fueling the T-party phenomenon to voice slanderous lingua and protest against healthcare they all surely need themselves. I can tell from their posture, by their skin, hair and breathing that a large group of ill folks is angered about something that has nothing to do with compassion and logic about health care.
It is hard to accept that not a single Republican could find it in their heart to vote for a proposal that intellectually must attract a more divided opinion rather then stubbornly voting because their party title. Ugly to listen to the angry talk hosts and radio hosts slandering the simple logic fact: We live in a polluted world… No need to add to it!
I know, once you experience a car crash, once you discover you are terminally ill, once you hold your sick child in your hands… it matters little what your political affiliation is. If it is about your life, possibly you would care little for the bill, you would want help first!
This great achievement for President Obama is flattening the road to a powerful political future and great International respect for the United States. The archaic perception that this powerful Nation, at war on several fronts, protecting the rights of foreign lands had no guaranteed healthcare for its own citizen is erased. Finally some justice to many ill citizen, some even in hiding of fear of rejection – is on it’s way. Insurance Groups will have to oblige to a open policy competition and cannot deny anyone by a status quo that is equally unjust and brutal as any war-field triage.
But, foremost: Now is the time for the Obama administration to promote a healthy lifestyle. Kids in school should be strictly protected from any processed foods, chemical by-products, and artificially and synthetically manipulated substances.
We need to bring back fresh and sane products that will prevent all the horrid side effects and chronic illness that have weakened our younger generations and killing the babyboomers. We need to learn the difference about “good” fod and “good tasting” foods and promote chefs that can cook healthy, not chefs that are stars but sell us frozen pizzas! We should not invite larger than life chefs to the White house to cook pork and deep fry dishes where the vegetables grown under Michelle Obama’s guidance are a side product; We should teach that these fresh products are more important to our immune system when eaten correctly, regularly and as a main dish.
There is much to learn and regain for the health of the future US. Let’s start with tackling the origin of our problems and stop patching up the symptoms.
It is a victorious day. A healthy new start!
