Are we sick?

We build a strong foundation from the ground up and the other way around.. 

I don't want to say that most of America has a cold war mentality but the Health Care reform bill is inciting such strong reactions. Its almost reminiscent of when Barack won the election. The visuals of McCain's defeat speech you could see white America cry! I don't get it. In the same manner that I don't get why people are freaking out about this bill. The issue of health care has been like mythical monster that everybody insist exist but no one has ever seen it! I'm 31 yrs old, I convinced that I would never see a president of color in my life time and that a health care reform bill would be signed. I was wrong on both cases but the more and more I talked to people there is gap of understanding of how the bill would work. Get informed 

I'm not an advocate for the bill but instead a advocate for change. I'm ok with trying something new because the old way did not work. I suppose there will always be someone opposed to change because it will adversely change their life. I would just like to know who is ok living the way they live while others can't afford the basic medical services. If we live in the most modern country with the best technology and some of the brightest minds; then why do we act like we shouldn't know better? To move past our transgressions we have to let go our past mindsets. There was a time when it was ok to have bathrooms for whites and blacks, when women weren't allowed to vote, and when kings ruled the lands. Isn't it time to take steps towards a modern America and leave the historic ways in the past?
