    Has anyone seen the fraudenlent anti-health reform commercial in which a woman, claiming to be a Canadian citizen (speaking with a perfect AMERICAN accent), claims that she would be dead if she had not come to America to receive treatment for a brain tumor?

    In this commercial, this "Canadian" (speaking with a perfect AMERICAN accent) claims that she would have to wait too long to be treated in Canada and speaks of how "awful" the Canadian health care system is.

    I have had conversations with genuine English-speaking Canadians. I used to work for one. I know what English-speaking Canadians sound like. The women in this FARCE of a commercial is definately NOT a Canadian.

    What are we going to see next, someone claiming to be a British or French citizen talking about how "bad" european health care systems are while speaking in a distinctly Bible-belt style southern drawl?

    Does the anti-health care reform lobby really think we are THAT stupid?

    Yeah, "unprecedented progress" in plans to rob working Americans to pay the medical bills of parasites who can't be bothered to pay their own bills.

    Chancellor, give the people the same health care you have received and still get for all your life.

    You ONLY want to CONTROL health care in this country.
    You are just a liar and you need to be impeached.
    Take your thugs and go back to Chicago.
    You bring nothing but disgrace to this country.

    I agree with the Centrist Democrats and Republicans that there should be more compromise and more thought and planning on the health issue. If we do not compromise and take some additional time for this measure it will definately fail in both congress and in the economy. It seems that both Democrats and Republicans are interested in publicity and self service than service to the country. I am sure our founding fathers would not approve of our current self centered and childlike government.

  8. Common Sense

    The same old song and dance with no real details. It is apparent that he has not read the bill either. He is a great politician, just a poor leader.

    He's going to ram this ill-advised plan through no matter what most Americans think. He is sounding more and more like a dictator every day.

    President Obama. Get Healthcare Reform Done NOW! Trying to be bipartisan was a good 'thought', but republican square blocks will forever be stuck on their NO side.

    Stuck supporting the Corporations who bought their political office.

    We put You and Democrats in power with a purpose, and you must continue to roll forward to achieve what the American people are asking for.

    There is too much more work to get done for the American people, to let lobbyist/republicans stand in the way.

    Odd that health care only became a crisis after Obama got into the WH.

    It's good to know that the President will head for Matha's Vineyard next soon for a well deserved vacation. He's got to rest up so he can continue to make impressive speeches full of empty promises on health care, the economy, the enviroment, unemployment, mortgage foreclosures, and many other important issues of the day.

  16. The power be with you

    It's nice to hear that private companies are willing to cut costs, of course, they have to do it to keep on doing business. They'll stay alive and making money but not at the same rate as before that has put the country in financial jeopardy and of course their own. We had to come this far for businesses to cooperate, but at least they are cooperating for their own benefit and the country"s.
