The Health Care Reform Bill and the ERA

I'm beginning to see some real similarities here, and I don't like what I'm seeing.  First and foremost, let us never forget the "Equal Rights Amendment" was never ratified, but it took less than forty years for the work force to be comprised of more women than men.  There was something much larger looming beneath the surface, though and we are now seeing the evidence and effect.

I've spoken on the subject before, citing Proverbs 31.  You don't need the ERA if you have G-O-D.  The Proverbs 31 woman had it going on!  Women have been working since the dawn of civilization.  Don't think for a minute, women weren't working when our society was agrarian.  I long to be that kind of woman, and I am in some areas.  My failings are not in work and project accomplishment, but  . . . suffice it to say, I seem to be taking the chapter in order . . .  Back to the similarity between this postponed, procrastinated health care and the ERA.

First, Health Care Reform has had a placebo effect.  Obama's followers feel better already!  What the talk and songs about the ERA actually did, was hand the child raising over to the government, well the ones that were born.  Through this much debated ERA era, although we didn't actually get the amendment, we did get "Head Start," skyrocketing divorce rates, birth control, and abortion, to name just a few "victories for women."   I believe women can actually serve a long side men in the military, rather than separate units like medical and clerical in the earlier days.  I haven't heard of the WAVES in years, because in 1972, all that changed.  Without the ERA women have been expected to work along side the men.  In each of the examples given, it seems women have actually lost their G-d given rights, while never really earning equality, and the government has raised a generation of kids, into the next generation, through the formative years, which brings me to this Health Care Reform Bill.

The millennials can now make all their own "adult" decisions at 18, in some states 17, go into thousands of dollars of debt for student loans with mom and/or dad's tax information, while remaining dependent children until the age of 26 for their health care.  Then, with this mandate, nobody is getting better care, they are just getting forced insurance, invasive questioning, tax penalties, and some reduced work hours.  The official health care is still another year and a half away, but so far, Obama's people feel better.  I can't help but wonder how they'll feel if and when it truly is implemented fully.  Meanwhile teen-agers can have access to all sorts of birth control, which will be another blog topic, but what I see here is health care will take government control beyond the formative years through to the adult years, which will have virtually every baby in America born into the agenda.

It truly doesn't matter if the entire Health Care Bill is ever fully enacted, "the followers" already feel better and we can all see with no ERA, "we've come a long way, baby!?
