    Harry Reid needs to sit down and be quiet. He should have passed filibuster reform so Obama could get some of his appointees through and some the agenda through. I believe there was some racism in the healthcare debate, but you can't prove it. The Democrats didn't get in front of this issue and they dragged their feet because they can't governed. They were too busy basking in the glow of Obama's historical victory. It is like a team that wins the Super Bowl one year that believes that they are going to take it easy the next season thinking that they are going back to the Super Bowl in easy fashion. Just like a boxer who knocks his opponent down, they don't stand their and dance and show boat, they stand over top of him and if they try to get up, knock em in the mouth again. This is what Obama and the Democrats didn't do in the first term with healthcare.

    What a fascile analysis.!? PPACA gives 30 million Americans the possibility of health care not available now. I'll be dramatic for effect. Who the hell really cares whether they are all " the N word people or not".
    American health care costs are 2 times the most expensive elsewhere whether especially single payer nations.
    then are not rated in the top 30 -40 QUALITY PROVIDERS.
    Grow up PPACA prorperly implemented will cut costs by 50 % plus.
