It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.
As to the job. After working every day of my adult life building some of the finest houses anyone has ever lived in the bottom fell out of the building industry. These days I am struggling along scratching up small jobs for chicken feed. I knew years ago that the housing bubble would not last and had a pretty good bit put back in savings but it is all gone now.
That is why when I hear someone blame the recession on Obama all I can do is laugh. Carpenters and contractors saw the collapse of the housing bubble coming years ago but no one listens to us, the realtors and the banks said it would last forever. Many years ago I used to be able to afford a lousy HMO that always tried to talk me out of using them but that is all over now and it has been 7 years since I heard of any contractor (Florida) providing health insurance for their employees.
I am a working man and I know what it is like to work much too hard for too little pay and hearing people like you call us welfare queens as an excuse for turning your back with a clear conscience. Working people need an affordable means of providing health care for their families but you would deny them just to spite the "entitlement class". (BTW we all know what that is a code word for)
