Obama health care reform plan is un-American

December 22, 2009

President Barack Obama and his administration have urged Congress to pass health care reform before the end of this calendar year. My opinion is that the actions of the Democrats have been un-American, unconstitutional and unthinkable. They are taking away our freedom by forcing all to pay for health insurance. This, at the expense of taking from those who earn more (or earn something at all) to give to those who don't. I am all for everyone having fairly priced health insurance coverage, and I am very much in favor of giving to those in need. However it appears obvious that Democrats are willing to mortgage our capitalistic future to take a large step toward nationalization.

I work in the health care field and have not treated one patient in favor of nationalized health care. I have yet to meet one person who is in favor of ballooning our national debt so this administration can make political history. This bill has less to do with the needs of Americans than with political prowess. Furthermore, I have spoken to dozens of other health care professionals who are considering leaving the health care field completely should this bill pass. I am afraid that if this bill passes, we as Americans will suffer global embarrassment and financial ruin as a result. How is that for political history?Lawrence Saez, Bel Air
