I won't buy into universal health care for two reasons.
One: the "buy it tonight or else" attitude of the Obama administration -- sounds like the pitch of a not-so-honest door-to-door salesman.
Two: "universal"? Will it really be universal? Bill Clinton liked to expertly parse words. I would agree with him if he asked this question now. What is the definition of universal in this case? Does it mean all and/or everyone who is a legal resident of the United States?
If the government is to take over health care, shouldn't the president, Congress, etc. get the same care as me (no better/no worse)? Shouldn't they also share the good and the bad, without exception, and not be out of the universal system because of their individual wealth and status?
Dad or Mom are as important to the family unit as any of our elected officials are to this country.
