    Deficit spending came about long before the Obama administration. So did corporate bailouts while CEOs stuffed their pockets with millions. Not a peep from any of the organizers then.

    And if you look at the latest polls, in spite of all of the lies told about the healthcare reform initiative of this administration, most people still want healthcare reform.

    Even with the latest proposals that address so-called "concerns" of the far right (re. coverage of "illegals", coverage for abortion, and such) conservatives are still stalling, balking, hemming and hawing.

    That's because in truth, they want NO reform.

    Bingo.

    Through all the din and acrimony at least one thing should be clear: Bankrupt of ideas or leadership, the right has slunk back to the only place where it has proven itself to be well suited: mindless obstructionism, knee-jerk opposition, stalling, etc.

    Now if only that was a valid and acceptable excuse for Obama and the Democrats to lead us to ruin! Please stop with that nonsense and tell the President to stop trying that tired mess too. Obama was elected for CHANGE - his word and proclamation! Obama ran on a campaign that he had the plan and wherewithall to lead us out of the massive problems America faced so please do not use that ridiculous playground whining "but Georgey did it."

    Yeah, I actually said that if you read what you quoted for me.:rolleyes: Just because people want reform, doesn't mean they want what Obama and the Democrats are attempting to cram down the throats of Americans. They do not have the right plan to improve healthcare and the American people know it!

    As I posted previously, all the bills in congress are deeply flawed and simply killing the public option is not enough. And addressing their lies regarding illegals and abortion is not enough. Government control of healthcare in the exchange and market place has provisions that are unacceptable and I have outlined them in previous posts. The CBO has determined that the bills add to the deficit and do not bend the cost curve. That is not the reform we want.

    Eliminating the Public Option Is Not Enough
    Contrary to what you assert, the Republicans have put forth reforms that the American people would love to support: Preventing private insurance from denying for preconditions or extensive care, tort reform, adding to competition by opening healthcare across state lines, allowing small businesses to group, and subsidies for low income families and the poor - all without breaking the bank.

    They want reform just like the American people...they don't want Government takeover of healthcare. The Government has failed to cost effectively manage all it's other programs and WE won't risk our health and our lives on that record.
