    It's not out yet. The House still has a public option in the bill and many of the liberals will fight to keep it. I'm hoping all of this finally leads us to single payer once the conservatives screw up this bill and people see that their rates have gone up and up even faster. If there is no public option, the insurance companies will go crazy and rape all of our bank accounts even more.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    You got that part right, but you're going to have a damn hard time pinning that on the Republicans. This bill is doomed to fail, everyone knows it and that's why the Republicans aren't putting their names anywhere on this piece of crap legislation. The truth is, that when this bill is passed, that nice little 40% excise tax is going to pull everyone's eyeballs out.
