    Oh my GOD, Magnum. You're saying there's no health care bill in Congress?

    Really? That's what you're saying? Really?

    Let's be clear about this -- really?

    No one is preventing the Republicans from sending it out via the party are they now.. so what is the problem? I bet even the Republicans could get the Healthcare industry to pay for it since they sleep in the same bed anyways!

    Ah, the other Centrist reliably shows up, being reliably "Centrist."

    This sort of thing is routinely done using the franking privilege. Check it out.

    The problem is that Anti-Republican congressmen are denying their Republican colleagues a privilege that is supposed to extend to all members of Congress regardless of party. The franking privilege is not limited to the majority party.

    And you know as well as I do, that "dirty tricks" is not a new thing in those buildings. So if the GOP really thought it was important to get this piece of paper out, then use the RNC for it for god sake and then whine about it.. would at least give their piece of paper and charts much more credibility. All you have now, is more partisan "WAHHHHH mommy he is being mean to me" antics.. and frankly I would have thought that the GOP was better than that... I guess not.

    Who's to say they won't? But it's hardly the point.

    Not that you wouldn't have been weighing in rather differently a few years ago.

    No you wouldn't. You don't even give the GOP credit for the good they do and you fall all over yourself to lambaste them for anything you think even has a chance of sticking and a lot of stuff you know doesn't have a chance anyway.

    Seems to me that the people in power can call anything "misleading" and prevent it from being communicated. I say let the mailer go out, and if the opposing party can refute it, then they should send out their own mailer.

    Let the people get all the information on something that is such a major issue, and let them make their own decision. I think this would be a great way to get people more involved.
