    There are a couple provisions in this bill that I don't believe will pass constitutional muster. Especially given the current conservative leaning of the supreme court.

    Let me be buried on this spot

    How ironic is it that today is the 235th anniversary of Patrick Henry's "Give me liberty or give me death" orratory at a spot not 5 miles from where I am typing this. His passionate plea at St. John's Church led the way for Virginia to enter the revolt against England.

    Patrick Henry was without a doubt a great speaker, inspiring passion in those who heard him. One such man was Edward Carrington, a regular guy, nobody special; but he was standing outside of the church that day, listening at an open window. He was so inspired that he yelled through the window, "then let me be buried at this spot"; and when the time came joined the Continental Army.

    A rather interesting life followed and when God called him in 1810, he was buried at that spot, outside that window, where a great man helped shape the tides of history.

    I think I will put some flowers on Mr. Carrington's grave tomorrow.

    I heard today that part of the "health care" legislation requires that restaurants only provide salt upon request....to promote good eating habits. Can anyone out there confirm that it is true?

    If it is....get ready to read some nasty comments from this member.

    I work in the healthcare industry, in MA, let me tell you its terrible.. My husband and I work our tails off, pay high cost for insurance and you can be denied having a certain test done that you very well may need. But in MA we have Medicaid which is for people who can't afford insurance. I do not begrudge anyone who is falling on hard times right now to be giving (Welfare) but I see on a daily basis people who have children after children and have (Welfare)don't work, and let me tell you they get any test that they need don't need to get it authorized by the insurance company because its the state.they don't need a Primary doctor because all they have to do is go to the ER and they have to be treated because its the state. when you or I go and it cost us out of pocket 100.00 even with insurance. I had to have my gallbladder out it still cost me 600.00 out of my pocket after we pay a heafty price monthly for insurance... I see it day in and day out its terrible so if this is what the president is proposing for everyone else we the middle class will still be paying for it..its not going to make it easier for us...only more people will be getting the ride. sorry but this is the way I see it. SanNic44 you are so right what are they going to control next??????? Is this country a democracy having my doubts Sorry didn't mean to rant.....but it infuriates me..this state.and now the government. Hey wonder how it would be if we all have the same insurance.

    There should be two lines, one for paying customers like you and me. I remember once waiting in the ER with my daughter (who needed stitches) for many hours sitting next to drippy nosed kids waiting to be treated for a cold.....
    Got home around midnight and had to go to work in the morning so I could pay my taxes.

    No softball. Did climb ladder and cleaned past autumn's leaves out of gutters last weekend.....while CindyO watched fearfully.

    Gee....think Obamacare would pay for the custom made contact lenses I now need to replace my torn iris? ....$500+ each? How about my other out-of-pocket expenses that were close to $2,000?

    Of course, my hard earned insurance did pick up over $20,000.

    I won't hold my breath waiting for Barack to help me.
