  2. Pelosi's a see-you-en-tea; Sniffit's a bee-you-tea-tee-whole

    Why ask now? Doesn't sound like it has ever mattered what America thinks!

  4. Democratic FAIL

    The upcoming FAILURE of the democratic party

    to work for the American People

    and instead satify the Insurance industry of Conneticut, AIG, and Goldman Sachs

    is an indication that, although they have the majority, and a President

    it is a useless, worthless answer for most Americans.

    Democrats, your one and only concern for Health Care is

    Core Regulation of the Insurance industry so that it serves the People 1st.

    Obama,........ a shame that an historic presidency is revealing a ragtag joke of a party.

    Thats what we're seeing and thats what we think.

    Does it really matter what we think? Who is listening?

    Certainly not those who we elected to look out for us.

    No public option,no expansion of Medicare, no import of less expensive medicines, pinching money from Medicare. In short no relief for Americans.
    We will have to continue struggling to survive with a non functional Health Care System where the Insurance Cos & other fat cats continue raking in money. And the law makers continue thumbing their noses at us.
    What a mess!

    I think it's safe to say that most Americans are fed-up with the juvenile antics of the GOP!! My grandchildren behave better!

  8. Pragmatic

    This is only round two: the House and Senate bills have to be reconciled and then sent to the President.

    Health care reform has been on the table since the Truman Era – several republican presidents have passed on their opportunity to reform health care, immigration or much else. It is too late to just "stay the course" ... to do so will only allow the insurance companies to cheer "Mission Accomplished"

    A lot of us think we need to vote more Republican Senators out of office. If all they're going to do is criticize and obstruct, they may as well stay home.

  10. Right Leaning Independent

    How can anyone have an opinion – No one has seen the bill!! Get it? Thats the problem here, no one knows what is in it with all of the back door negotiations and yet we are going to rush it through just to have it done by some self imposed Christmas deadline. Where is the transparency that was promised? Today's Dems and Obama are the biggest Hypocrites that have ever graced the halls in Washington!!

    I think for many people, it is already too little too late. Maybe some will be helped a little in the future.
