The battle lines are drawn and it will get nasty. The Republicans doing everything they can to preferably stop Health Care reform but at minimum water it down so much that it is useless.
At the same time the Democrats for the most part, barely fighting or in the case of Max Baucus totally sabotaging the efforts.
There are some heroes however that need our help and support, folks like Ted Kennedy and Bernie Sanders and yes there are others.
There is a way to assure that the forces of light get the support they need to get this done.
Prior to passing a health Care bill, pass a very simple bill that states:
Once Health care reform legislation is passed the plan that is adopted and all its terms will immediately apply to every Federal worker including elected officials and their families....no exceptions.
The only way to deal with greedy horrible people (basically about 90% of congress) is to make them vote their personal interest not yours!
