I think they ought to try to help the poor people out. Like us, you know we ain't working, they need to give us something to cover our kids for the emergency rooms and hospitals things like that. But uh, anyways, they need to do something about all this and I think they need to help us out.

Renee from Warrior

And yes, I am proud of our president. I voted for him basically on the healthcare issue and I am for the public option. And I do not like how the republicans have been acting. They need to help.

Harold from Birmingham wrote

Healthcare, one of the main topics this year. There should be some kind of healthcare for the less fortunate. Most of us are blessed to have it whether through our job or on our own. But either way it is still high but affordable. And for kids from elementary through high school, there should be something in place for the ones who can't afford it too.
