The House Is Taking A Robin Hood Approach To Health Care

The House is working on drafting legislation that will use a “rob from the rich and give to the poor” method to help provide health care coverage to the 50 million Americans who can’t afford it.
 
Under the new bill, individuals with an adjusted gross income of more than $200,000 and couples whose AGI is over $250,000 would be taxed to help tackle the cost. Employers who don’t offer health care benefits are expected to be taxed as well.

This is legislation that should have been written decades ago.
 
There are too many citizens without health care. If America wants to proclaim itself the best country in the world it needs to step it up when it comes to caring about the needs of its people. It’s shameful that CEOs and Hollywood blow billions every year on frivolous things that don’t benefit anybody but themselves, while millions can’t even afford to go to the doctor when they are sick.

We roll up our windows when the homeless approach our vehicles and turn the TV station when commercials asking for donations come on.

Greed is why this country is in the terrible financial state it’s currently in. It’s time that the wealthy help the common good. The haves didn’t hesitate to put their hands in the pockets of the have-nots when they needed to be bailed out.

I know it’s not the American way to think about the next person, but for this country to thrive and progress we have to be more thoughtful of others.

I bet some of Bernard Madoff’s victims, who were stingy, are now looking for assistance. Oh, how the tides have changed! One day you can be sitting on top of the world and the next day you’re at bottom.

We should all treat one another how we wished to be treated.

Under the leadership of the Obama administration a much needed change is coming to America’s health care system.
