If America is truly a democracy, then why are our elected representatives going against the will of the people in the matters of health care and drug concerns? It cannot be denied that a majority of American citizens prefer to strengthen our free-market system and include a not-for-profit healthcare plan administered by our government called the "Public Option." Yet we are told that the U.S. Senate will not even give it consideration. I believe the reason is simple: greed.
Our elected representatives have turned their backs on the people of America to satisfy their excessive desire for wealth and power. In addition, the underlying corporate powers financing and driving this dissension are taking advantage of the religious and philosophical masses, who are either inclined toward emotional advances or are disadvantaged intellectually. Both honor and any sense of a moral compass have fled the halls of power in America, where there is no longer any shame.
I pray the people of America will wake up from their slumber of ineptness and remove those in power who would abide the pain and suffering of their constituents in trade for momentary satisfaction of their personal greed.
