Every other solution is just government funding the want of private insurance, only if there is a mass public alternative will private insurance actually have to try to provide a good service rather than just turn down claims in an attempt to provide easy returns to their investors.

ironically, right of center, you're the one making ME an issue
all i'm doing is breaking a news story (a BIG one) and explaining its political meanings and signficance
This past month (July) I've gone from "Ok Obama step it up a little bit" to "Come on Obama! F*cking follow through with your policies.
I genuinely thought he was different from many politicians, damn I was wrong. He's just a regular politician.
Man, if I can't trust Obama, I can't trust anyone in gov't now. The GOP is not any better, in fact a lot worse, than Obama.
I voted for him so he can ram bills up the asses of the GOP, like the dead health care plan. I can't believe he killed that thing.
F*ck that I'm voting for Kinky Freidman.
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
If he changes because the voice of America asks for something else it's weak? If he forces what America doesn't want he's a dictator. Thank you for making the health care debate a serious non partisan issue everyone.
and so it goes...
your posts are impossibly disorganized.

My use of exaggeration is often overdone. I will give you that.
I suppose what I am dictating is the impossibility of Obama getting anything done if he is accused of "flip flopping" when he is simply adjusting to the political discourse of the status quo.
