When Barack Obama delivers his critical health care speech to Congress tonight, he needs to mention three things to ensure the passage of health care reform and to save his presidency from certain failure.

1. No Public Option

Barack Obama's declining poll numbers speak loudly for Americans who do not want to give up their health insurance for a public, government controlled plan. Nor do they want their taxes raised to support free health care for illegal aliens.

2. Tort Reform

If Obama doesn't mention Tort reform tonight, he might as well hang up any chance of a health care reform bill passing this year. Medical malpractice damage awards is one of the main reasons medical costs have spiraled out of control in this country. The need for tort reform is simple: put caps on medical malpractice awards and associated medical costs will decline. Good doctors are leaving the field of medicine in droves due to the high cost of liability insurance. Each time a hospital is hit with a large medical malpractice damage award, the costs are passed down to us, the patients.

So far, Obama has ignored tort reform because he is a lawyer, and he's in bed with trial lawyers who rely on the lucrative income from medical malpractice cases to butter both sides of their bread with.

3. Erase state boundaries and decrease insurance costs

Instead of the government taking over health care (and ruining it for everyone), Obama needs to talk about erasing the boundaries between states so residents can cross states lines and buy insurance at competitive rates.

And while he's at it, he should talk about putting caps on insurance premiums to keep insurance rates affordable for everyone.

We'll see tonight if Obama has the backbone to stand up against the far left wing liberal extremists and save his presidency from failure.

    It's sad that everyone talks about wanting change but when it's time to stand up or shut up most shut up. BTW, I am referring to the so called President Obama supporters. Most folks like the way things have always been done so they constantly have something to complain about.

    Amen! I think some ppl really thought our President was going to pay their rent and their telephone bill. He was not trying to go back to the days of welfare but for us to take care of ourselves and invest in our own communites. No Sandra I am not trading in my sippy koolaid cup but tired of ppl not realizing what change means.

    I don't think there is anything the President can say or do that will please you. Even if he addressed your list specifically. Anywho, let me find out what this thing is about.

    Sidebar: I don't think I have ever seen the 1st Lady look more stunning.

    @sandrarose when did u become a political pundit? #sitcho #azzdown

    Obama could've said, I'm erasing everyone's debt & buying y'all houses cash and momofukus would still bish & moan. He's damned if he does, damned if he doesn't. Why won't y'all let Obama be great?!!

    Sandra's points are straight out of the Republican handbook. How any healthcare professional, supposedly a nurse and British citizen, could be opposed to universal healthcare for everyone is mind boggling. A Republican president sold congress on a bogus war that continues to cost America 10-12 billion dollars per month with no end in sight, but folks are up in arms over universal healthcare. You have unemployed and uninformed people arguing against their own self interests, which illustrates how effective the Republican propoganda machine is.

    I'd like Obama to stand firm and fight for healthcare reform as he originally envisioned it instead of compromising and kowtowing to Republicans and moderate Democrats.

    I just want to know if Pres. Obama can pardon my student loan debt.

  • pointhimout

    OUR student loan debt, Attorneymom. Sandra, you have to admit, that Rep from SC was dead wrong, and disrespectful for that. I think the entire room, dems and repubs, were stunned out his outburst.
