    Tens of millions without health insurance. Tens of thousands dying for lack of coverage. Costs increasing by double or triple the rate inflation each year.

    You know, that status quo.

    What "the people want" is a very old concept in american politics. Its what the corporatists want that matters... and they don't want healthcare reform. Though, I bet they are pretty happy with result, as the reform has been so watered down there isn't much meat to it anymore.

    Re: Nelson says he'll support healthcare bill

    You know I've been pondering this for a while now. Isn't it strange how in the Global warming debates, 'man is the problem', but inversely in this debate 'we must save man'..... How does that square?

    Could it possibly be that those who are in agreement with Hugo Chavez that Capitalism is the root of evil today, that we must destroy it?

    And how better to accomplish this than to attack it on several fronts and overwhelm the system.

    I can assure you I am not in any agreement with Hugo Chavez. He's got to be one of the dumbest leaders out there right now. It's no wonder he and retardo Ahmadinejad are buddies.

    You may not be personally, I understand that. But, Obama is.

    What proof do you need? If you have a preexisting condition you're SOL. Or if your bill gets too high for your cancer treatment and the insurance company cuts you off you are left to die also. This is common knowledge. Do you live under a rock?
