PostSubject: Throw the Bums Out   Mon Feb 15, 2010 8:49 pm

Survey's are showing more and more that most of us are fed up with all incumbents more so than ever.

It all started with the Health care reform of the President. Most of us did not support this plan, but almost everyone of us believe that we need reform. Republicans, if you do not make the changes we need to throw you guys out as well.

Here are the facts. The health insurance industry had record profits for 2009 and gouged all of us to get there.

Here are the statistics:

The result of this is the feeling we have that our government is not in touch with its citizens.

I am not sure I understand your point here. You talk about getting rid of the incumbents who have done business as usual and are forcing the Health Care Bill (HCB) down the throats of the people and you give a link to how much money the insurance companies made.

One of the arguments for the HCB is because the insurance companies are making money. So why make the argument to throw them out and then give one of their reasons to defend your point?

My point is that as Obama favors big government the Republicans favor big business. Neither are good for the common person.

If Republicans continue to hold the hands of big government and the Democrats sleep with big bureaucracy out of the middle comes the Tea Party.

I am beginning to feel disenfranchised from common sense in the two major political parties.
