    I would you rather explain to me how repubs would do it any different. From the economy to healthcare, and actually create positive change.

    If they were to actually make strides to end practices such as pre-existing condition rejection for coverage, then I would welcome it. But they will not. I know it and you know it.
    ....but we do not know that. All of the negotiations are being held behind closed doors these days and neither the press nor the republicans are allowed inside to participate or observe. That is the present reality.

    I suggest you keep this question on ice until, oh, I'd say after the 2010 elections. Then I won't have to "explain" anything to you.

    I acknowledged that it was imperfect as is. What I fear is no reform at all. I do not think anything will change. Republican Senators will filibuster and that is that.

    Absolutely not. However, it was promised.

    Is that it, or that there are no ideas. Only the ability to tear down, not build.

    Brown was not elected for ideas or agenda, but rather for trying to stop Obama.

    The Republicans aren't going to try and kill the energy industry in this country. Think of all the tobacco industry jobs that have been lost over the past year. The Progressives are a disgrace to our nation.

    Well they had a chance at it for 6 years and they blew it. How will it be any different this time?

    How is tobacco and energy related?
