    We must insist that reform not be watered down.  
    Chuck Grassley will take credit for the parts of the bill he likes even when he opposes it - that's exactly what he is doing with HCR - despite telling Iowans they should fear the gov't could "pull the plug on grandma"

      will come up re: financial reform. Remember it has to compete with the "death panel's" and "the plug on granny". Some catchy one liner that the masses will eat up. Where is Frank Luntz when they need him?

        But, since that's all they know to do, and they aren't wont to stay quiet, we're going to continue to be subjected to their shenanigans.  It's just so sad...

        I would rather see and hear the Democrats screaming from the rooftops, and unanimously repeating that the republiCONs, including the cynical wordsmith Frank Luntz, are MANIPULATING PEOPLE!  Here's a good one:

        RepubliCONs aren't great politicians; they're great manipulators & con artists!

        Nobody likes to be played; yet, the entire republiCON machine is designed to cheat, lie, and manipulate people into believing them and following them.  If we could just get that point through to people, perhaps they would begin to see that even Faux "news" has a huge role in this endeavor!

        Stop being manipulated!  Think for yourself!  Learn the TRUTH and do your own research!

        Seems easy to me...sure would love to see the Dems do this!

          Now that would be too hard for them, don't you think? I am afraid there are two groups of folks here, the racist and insane, those are the ones who are looking for justification and validation of their beleifs, and the stupid and lazy, who are looking to have everything defined and digested for them.
