Yvette D. Clarke, why should we come?

Answer to #1

Obama thinks he has the Jews in his back pocket. (76% voted for him…despite his views on Eretz Yisroel.) Obama, can not take over health care. No matter what party you are on, the USA can never be GOV controlled. We will then be like Europe, or eventually even worse. In a few weeks Senator Rockefellor will introduce a bill, that when it comes to an emergancy (what ever that means) the PRESIDENT will be given the power to control the INTERNET. (read today’s Drudge). I know, so many in CH, and around the USA live on GOV health benifits….… Read more »

Why say no to healthcare reform

Why say no to healthcare reform

Say no to healthcare reform because it makes people DEPENDENT. It makes them lazy. It makes them lose their self-respect. Earning a living and supporting oneself=healthy esteem=healthy citizens=vibrant community of INDEPENDENT, active people.

Common sense, no?

Start learning about healthcare and the problem with gov. control on it. Then you can say things like “Yidden going against the president…” Learn before you talk.

Thank you congresswomen

Thank you congresswomen

As far as can remember, this is a first for Crown Heights. Thank you for giving us a platform to raise our concerns.

For those who may not be aware, Congresswoman Clarke is a fast growing star on the national front.

Do not be gullable to the fast growing stars …. they will forget you ina heart beat. The liberal left is doing everything they can to turn us into a socialist gov controlled …filled with regulation country. Tzedakah isnt paying taxes, and they take care of health. You will not care for your neighbor if all issues are solved by the GOV. We must ttake care of our neighbor! GOV can assist me in my work, not do all the work! G-d forbid we have Gov ontrolled health care. Tell me one democrat adminstration that has been good for Israel?… Read more »

If it wasn’t for food stamps many chassidim would be in a hole.

If there was no welfare, the economy would be ten times better and the Chassidim would be able to prosper incredibly more so than now, making the poor ones middle class, and the rich ones (yidden) would have incredibly more resources to help the very few poor ones themselves, leaving the government out of our lives. Please, all should attend the Townhall meeting, and if you can’t get in wait outside and let your voices be heard. Also bring with your cameras to record the event. You may have to have a few extra SD cards in your pocket to… Read more »

GET INVOLVED

If the Jewish community in Crown Heights wants their voice heard in Washington, and want their issues addressed by politicians, then they have to show that they care and are involved. If a large number of people show up, then Ms. Clark will know that she must address our needs if she wants our votes. If no one shows up, she won’t bother with the Jews anymore. Jews in Crown Heights should get involved in the local Republican and Democrat Parties, (depending on your political persuasion,) get involved in deciding which candidates are going to run and get elected, and… Read more »

i must admit though she is a thoughtful obama lackey

now being the real question if u line up nicely and have people for and people vehemently against
has the conclusion already been set

single payer is still a taboo word and i do not understand why its still on the table to use that word it is the end of any potentcy to our economic system

Why is free government health-insurance good enough for the thousands in Crown Heights on Medicaid, but not good enough for millions of other Americans who don’t lie about their incomes and don’t qualify for Medicaid, yet can’t afford private health insurance?
Don’t bite the hand that feeds you, for in time, in the name of your blind partisanship, you will get what you wish for, and thousands in Crown Heights will have no health insurance at all.

You speak such nonsense. The gov’t isn’t the hand thats feeding “thousands” of people in crown heights, it’s enslaving them. without the gov’t they don’t know where to turn, and thats why these thugs keep on getting elected. this sickness shouldn’t spread throughout the rest of the country. If medicate, medicare, and all the other gov’t programs ended tomorrow, I can bet you all the money I own that you will mediately see prices come down. All this bill will do is increase the price of health care for all of us.

Actually its you that speaks nonsense — as in what you are saying doesn’t make any sense. What exactly does the cost of health care have anything to do with Medicaid or Medicare? Answer: nothing. If there is any correlation it would be inverted. If the government suddenly dropped millions of Medicaid and Medicare policies, the health industry would be out billions of dollars in income, for all those on the government doles would not go out and buy private policies they can’t afford. Instead they would utilized emergency room services for free. This in turn, would increase your private… Read more »

Don’t you realize that all that is said her is viewed by thousands of people.
Does every topic or subject need to be discussed in “GUTTER TALK”?

Congresswoman Clarke is coming to listen to the concerns and suggestions of ALL the constituents in the 11th CD, so come, listen or express your opinion.

AS FAR AS SEE IT, THIS KIND OF FORUM, IS A FAR CRY FROM SOCALISIM OR COMMUNISM.

For those who can not wait to rebuke me with some wise crack, go do a “good deed to bring Moshiach”.

Mel-ech Ba-sode!!!!

I was under the same impression, however, after seeing the news clip/interview, I think that the congresswoman will not be a pushover.

Actually the way the way the health system works, is that the people who pay with medicaid, the government actually underpays the hospitals in their compensation. So how do the hospitals make ends meet? They pass the buck to the private health insurance companies, via higher bills to the clients of these private health insurance companies. In other words the health insurance companies help subsidize medicaid patients, thereby raising the cost of private health insurance.
