  •  Take away their health care (0+ / 0-)

    Seriously, it was cynical of Mark Halperin, but he was right to say that health care would fail, or at least have serious problems, because the media people all had health care and didn't understand the problems.

    I think Obama's emphasis on insurance reform is the right way to appeal to those people who do have insurance to explain what reform would do for them.  And I think that taking most of the profit our and offering a public option will ultimately price the for-profit insurers only to high-end care, which is as it should be.

    If we get reform started now, it can be improved after the 2010 and 2012 electuions.  If it fails now for whatever reason, then we are looking at another 10 years most likely.

    That's a lot opf deaths and disabilities.

    Democracy needs accountability. Investigate and prosecute the Torture Thirteen.

    •  Take away the Congressman's Health Care (0+ / 0-)

      Better yet, during August:

      It's only a short delay, so, it shouldn't matter, Mr. Representative, that you and your family won't mind being without health care for the the month of August.

      So it's only a few of you that need some time to think this through?

      Well 40 million people have had lots of time to think through being uninsured..

      So how about if we have a proportionately uninsured Congress that looks and feels like all of us...

      To make things fair, we can split it 50% / 50% Republican and Democrat and 50% of Mr Lieber-whatever he is.

      Guarantee you that they'll be running back to DC to get things fixed FAST!
