President Obama is trying to reform our broken health care system, which has left more than 45 million Americans uninsured and millions more with insurance that won't provide the treatment they need.
Some in Congress are with Obama. But the insurance industry, with help from Republicans and so-called centrist Democrats, is leading the charge to kill a key part of his plan -- a government-run insurance plan that would increase the number of Americans covered, called the "public option." Industry groups are spending millions -- $35 million in lobbying costs alone -- to convince people that they won't be able to choose their doctor, that government will be making their medical decisions, that they'd be forced to take the government's plan, and that the plan is part of some socialist plot -- all lies. In reality, the insurance industry is trying to protect its enormous profits on the backs of everyday people.

Our opportunity to address the disparities that keep too many of us from enjoying long, healthy lives is now.
Please join me in telling our lawmakers that the first step toward improving our health care system is including a public plan that makes good health something everyone can afford.

google and get their emails and phone their offices. But the strongest move is personal visits and let them know they lost your vote.

99 per cent of the Black vote went to President Obama. 33 percent - 6 million plus of this vote were between the ages of 18 and 27. The health care issue - funds for inner city public schools and housing for the homeless – food shelter & clothing are issues that are of extreme importance to the inner city and rural poor. The machine that has mobilized to crush health care will mobilize to crush any CARE for poor Black and every other poor American. This is the reality of the have vs. have nots. Do not be surprised that the Black Asian Hispanic haves are not shouting loud or in the streets in support of single payer health care or the so called public option!

We see the right wing racists and conservatives taking over the town hall meetings. They are fighting to prevent change BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY! Where are the Black 99 per centers - where are the young Black 33 per centers - there is quite on the Black Front - looks like the vast majority of the so calledtalented 10 percent are quiet sitting back hoping politicians solve the problems of our disenfranchised or may be they do not really care and pretend not to understand what is really at stake.

Reforming a system is not change – change is revolution – a complete overhaul of what has been to something totally new! All who love the ‘status quo’ oppose change and work for reformation – comprise! Ask this questions: Are middle and upper class Black Americans afraid of revolution which is simply a real change of a system, i.e. change in a segregated transportation system or education system - Are middle and upper class Black Americans afraid of going to the streets in the style of the Black Civil Rights Movement - afraid to move the conviction of Dr. King or with courage of Jamil Al Amin, Kwame Toure Huey Newton, Fred Hampton or the young and old that faced days like Bloody Sunday through out the south.

To many talking heads and to much intellectual masturbation and discussion about the bullsh@t compromise bipartisan hope! Folks needed to be out there demanding single payer health care demanding housing for the homeless just like these white supremacist and conservatives were and still are fighting against change!

What is needed is some direct action - just like you see mighty whitey throwing down at the town hall meetings and at their rallies - what is need is getting in the face of all those bullsh@t politicians you went to dinners and supported and drank Kool aid with. Emails are the weakest form of action in times like these. Hell mighty whitey paraded armed to the gills at the President’s speech. Those gun toting right wing conservative folks were embolden and intended to show disrespect because they smell fear – fear coming from middle and upper class folks – fear coming from the White house! White liberals and you know who else are all scared to death! The Sons of Anarchy Ride!

Do you remember 'Our day will come and we'll have everything' ? Do you remember 'Sam Cook - A Change is gonna come' ? Well any chance at change may have come and gone and Black folks who believed that politics will change conditions for our people voted and retreated to their living rooms. The did not know how to leverage and benefit from the Obama mania – they defer to the politicians and talking heads. They have failed to go to the street and support what positives the President was trying to do! I hate to think that those who voted Democratic just wanted were reformation and compromise to maintain the ‘status quo’ and to see come color in the White House!

If the President and the Democratic party bend over on the health care issue Black America’s suffering and the suffering of the poor throughout the nation will continue – there will be no housing for the homeless, no funding of inner city schools, or any programs that spread the wealth! Change will then only be brought about by the rage of the street – of the disenfranchised of all colors.

The Homeless and Allies Occupied a Vacant Lot and Builds a Tent City in East Harlem..As the foreclosure crisis festers, Bloomberg and the banks fail us. While the homeless population continues to escalate, landlords and the city continue to keep buildings empty. In fact, the total volume of potential apartments in vacant buildings and lots in Manhattan alone exceeds the number of homeless households in shelter and on the street citywide! How about in Atlanta – whatz up!

The Homeless, The Hungry, The Disenfranchised are awake and not afraid of change - not afraid of Direct Action! The poor will be Empowered by their own self determination!

The homeless and starving masses of women men and children are not waiting for weak willy mouth, compromising Democrats or any other politicians to make moves for them. Nor are they looking to the talented 10% or the 99 per cent of the Black voters that voted Democratic! If they do they will freeze and starve to death in the streets and alleys and fight each other to get into the limited shelters cities make available! The following videos show the real life story going on - a story the White House is ignoring along with the rest of the middle and upper class folks! The health care issue is just one of many that must be won for the sake of the poorest of the poor!

Picture The Homeless Building Occupation

Tent City Press Conference 1
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFMsnXdX-rc

Whatz up ATL? Whatz up Detroit? Whatz up Naacp Urban League? Get behind the homeless men women and children? Get in the street with the people!

Peace Power & Blessings flow from individual and mobilized well organized collective action!

While on the subject of HEALTH CARE REFORM, revisit this article posted by JC Callaway August 31, 2009 in this community. http://wacptv.ning.com/profiles/blogs/2077897:BlogPost:27684
It hits home with some personal health caring we need to be dealing with... GOOD HEALTH PRVENTATIVE MEASURES WE CAN TAKE DAILY TO INSURE YOURSELF.

Thank you Shay for this post. There is sooo much confusion about this subject. One of the issues that I heard was that the Government should not get into the business of Health Care and that they may out bid and under-price everybody else like WalMarts. Another augument is that there are no existing instances where Government is in business along side other and put others out of business. While even another side of the augument says that it's all about race, Obama and party affiliations. We are trying to get to the bottom line of what is really going on...
anybody, can you add to this discussion please!
