The House of Representatives approved President Barrack Obama’s Health Care initiative tonight with a vote of 219-212 in favor of the bill that will extend health care coverage to millions of Americans who currently go without and prohibits insurance companies from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions! This bill will now be sent to the President’s desk on Tuesday for his signature!
Now many of you might be asking, “Shoppinqueen,what is this about, I thought this site was about shopping for the finer things in life?” Well, I can’t think of a finer thing to have than your health, nothing saddens me more than seeing pages on the web seeking donations to pay for medical expenses for families who’ve already endured the hardship & trauma of a serious illness or accident. I wish the very best for my readers & to me the best begins with a healthy body & mind!
And so, American takes a deep breath & we begin a 10 yr process of attempting to create a health care system for all. Will it be easy? will there be problems? will aspects of this bill need to be reshaped or changed altogether? Most assuredly the answer to all of these questions is a resounding YES! However, we have begun, taken the first step towards ensuring that access to health care will be the right of all Americans and in my opinion that is a huge step forward in the right direction!
