Live, and Taking Your Questions: Health Care Summit on YouTube

[Cross-posted to the YouTube Blog]

While some people are calling it the most important political event of the year and others deem it political theater, one thing is clear: today's health care summit, featuring President Obama and top legislators from both bodies of Congress, will be a fascinating look into the inner workings of Washington. Democratic and Republican party leaders will engage in direct dialogue on an issue that has consumed the political landscape for the past year, and we'll be streaming the summit live on CitizenTube (youtube.com/citizentube), so you'll be able to watch the conversation unfold in its entirety.

What's more, top legislators have agreed to address your questions and ideas on health care after the summit, exclusively on YouTube. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Minority LeaderJohn Boehner, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have all agreed to answer a selection of your top-voted questions about health care, the summit, and current legislation, which you can submit via our Google Moderator platform on CitizenTube during the event. The three lawmakers will upload video responses to your questions, and we'll feature those videos on the YouTube homepage on Friday.

The summit starts at 10 a.m ET today at the Blair House (located just across the street from the White House), so head to CitizenTube to submit your questions as you watch the proceedings. Be sure to ask your questions and vote during the event, since we'll close down the Moderator platform at the conclusion of the summit, which is slated to end around 4 p.m. ET.

This promises to be one of the most transparent moments in recent Washington history, so get your health care questions ready.

Hey...here's a quickie.

If Dems want Insurance reform, and Reps want Tort reform, and I want Monetary reform, why not find a way to combine all three.

I posted my opine on Newsvine. And I posted snippets of it, in replies to videos here.

Boiled down, here's what my proposal consists of

Taking all the enforcement of the LAW, President and Congress, orders Treasury to redirect all Taxation enforcement to bear on FEDERAL RESERVE, in a "table-turn," making the FED owe all the taxes of the country, instead of the citizens.

Leave day-to-day taxation apparatus upon the people and corporations, allowing enforceable collections t oslowly descend down to a penny, HOWEVER, Make it so that citizens and corps can use that apparatus as SAVING MECHANISM into an IRA-type account at their local banks.

Citizen,

You are going to, or you ALREADY HATE ME!

Yin Is Mom, Democrats. Yang, Is Dad, Republicans.

Bi-Partisan, is Dad ALWAYS caving in to Mom!

It couldn't be more simple.

My health care is none of your bleeping business. If abortion is a Privacy Issue...Why isn't my getting a pace maker, or a gall bladder operation.

I've blocked you, because I don't want you to come back screaming at me, about how much you would love to facking kill me!

Have an exceptional day,

OAD

Bennie,

I don't know if you are being facetious, but you're welcome.

This pic of Shelly Obama in my blog entry is really, Sarah Palin in black face to make Shelly look bad.

This is no laughing or joking matter. To obscure and confuse taxpayaers, Obamacare has been named "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act", nothing more than a takeover by the Government of 1/6th of our economy. The Senate Jobs Bill offers tax credits to employers who hire new workers, and this includes illegal aliens. Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, Amtrak and the Postal Service are all broke. With this track record, why would we want to give them our Healthcare? Can't any of you see the handwriting on the wall? It is power! This government is taking away our liberties one by one; where in the Constitution does it authorize the Fedeal Government to regulate healthcare or any other entitlements? Ask you Congressmen that? 1-800-828-0498 to protest!
