    Leading Blue Dog: Covering uninsured not top priority of health reform

    The Hillís Blog Briefing Room Leading Blue Dog: Covering uninsured not top priority of health reform
    Rep. Mike Ross (D-Ark.) said on Wednesday that providing healthcare to uninsured Americans is "not what this healthcare reform debate is about."

    In making his comments, Ross, who is the centrist Blue Dogs' health reform point man, questioned one of the primary healthcare goals of the White House and Democratic leaders.
    Rather makes one wonder what all the push for a public option is, then.

    If insuring the uninsured is not the point, if cost containment is the point, then why is there nothing within the variations of HR3200 that confronts the very real economic defects within health care today?

    (And what will Queen Nancy do if the rest of the Blue Dogs are this far off the approved script?)

    That's because the Blue Mutts are paid off by the insurance companies. They are Republicans in Democrat's clothing. They have no interest in helping the American people.
    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 do realize you just as good as admitted that "your team" is actually a minority in Congress. Just sayin'...

    Theres that wonderful George W. Bush "With us or against us" attitude again! And mixed in perfectly with the formerroadie special of "I can't actually prove anything but I'll make outlandish statements as if they're facts because that side disagree's with me".

    Truly awe inspiring.

    It couldn't possibly be, yet again, that they don't...gasp....agree with how the plan is going about things and thinks that doing it is worse than not doing it for the American people?

    No, can't be. Paid off stooges that hate america.

    He was absolutely correct.. the intent of the healthcare bill is a power grab. Only a fool would repeatedly accept progressive power grabs (BO's and W's too) as having the slightest intent of helping Americans. For them there is never any intent to help, but instead to further their role in butchering our rights and furthering the progressive march toward tyranny! Unfortunately the uninformed, and even legitimate liberals (albeit misled), are eager to buy it lock, stock and barrel.

    "we are with the government, and we are here to help"... WAFJ!

    You did notice that most Americans are opposed to this bill, right?

    How is that? I just said the Blue Dogs are a minority. God, reading comprehension please.
