I want to thank each of you that has participated in the discussions elites AND elites two i know this is very shaky ground and it takes alot for some people to join a discussion like this or to even think about it most want to close their eyes and pretend these things dont exist but they do and we must stand together if we are going to effect change i have received a bunch of messages from people who want to be involved but arent ready to do so in public we cannot be afraid to stand up for what is right contrary to what we are being forcefed healthcare is not a right but it also is not to be reserved for only the priveledged too many beleive its the govts duty to care for you that is not what our constitution says but we passed soc- sec and then added medicare these things are now rights as qualified citizens of our country healthcare costs are so great largely due to providing it to those that either cannot or do not pay those costs are passed on to you in the form of higher ins. premiums and copays im not saying that we should not provide care for those in need but the way its done is extremely costly an emergency rm visit for someone uninsured is 10x the cost or more than a visit to your pcp you are being led to beleive these costs will go down with hcr not true the only savings will come from cuts in care provided to those in need if we are to keep care for the most vulnerable we must speak up the only thing this admin understands is those with deep pockets or very loud voices by joining together we will be loud so join me let us not be afraid but cause fear through our our singular voice and our votes they will listen love to all GREG

I have contacted the congressman for ky plus the senator as well. Hopefully they will listen, I guess that is all I can do for now. If you think of anything else I can do let me know.

We are strong as individuals. We are stronger as a group and our voices will be heard. We need no whine about things. We need to offer solutions and plans of action. Then they will listen. If they don't then we can use our numbers to affect the change we need through other venues.
