Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate. Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belaboring those problems which divide us…..
And if a beachhead of cooperation may push back the jungle of suspicion, let both sides join in creating a new endeavor: not a new balance of power, but a new world of law, where the strong are just and the weak secure and the peace preserved.
Ask not what your country can do for you–ask what you can do for your country. -John F. Kennedy
Never have those words resonated so loudly as now in these uncertain times where government and House Republicans let their highly-compensated dogmas hold the American People hostage. Never has government been so self-centered! Clearly, Congress does not value the lives of the American People. They are confident in ignoring us all.
Lately, patriotic themes serve as staunch opposition to raising the debt ceiling…unless medical device companies are spared taxes earmarked to defray the costs of premiums, expand coverage to millions and improve quality care–making it more patient centric and integrated clinically. These companies profit from the system yet too greedy to pay their fair share of taxes. Let’s bargain, switch liability from doctors to these companies and no increase taxes.
BTW, Obamacare is here to stay!
Congress: Grow-up and stop being such sore losers. Obama won the election. He is more clever than you. Move on.
