Black people: your President needs you!

President Obama and the democrats make a final, weekend push for healthcare reform. To bring America a step further into the modern world when it comes to universal healthcare. To eliminate the right of insurers to drop people from coverage “just because.” To help the millions of disadvantaged Americans who turn to the ER for basic medical care.

Meanwhile, republicans are out demonizing, name-calling, fear-mongering, partying like it’s 1947. Where’s all that love black folk had for the first black president, oh, circa, fourteen months ago? Where’s that support now? Where are those voices? Why are so many so silent on such a critical issue for the president? An issue so critical to black people?

I refuse to be a vote that disappeared. I believe President Obama is good for my health. I believe President Obama is good for America’s health.
