Well put!

It sure isn't the best plan, but any plan is a better plan, and thanks for the linky love Jenn :)

I don't know what the answer is, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't have anything to do with throwing bricks or spitting on people.

EXACTLY! To all the detractors, I've been saying: at least we're doing something...it's the first step that's key.

Lindsey Petersen

I agree completely. It seems that the only people who are against this are people who have health insurance. They should walk a mile in the shoes of the uninsured!!!

Wise people focus on the positive.

Professor J

I'm with you and Gary. It's good to have a car.

I wish more people thought that way...you and Gary need to take this idea on the road.
(you know...in that slow moving vehicle.)

I am of the opinion that reasonableness in all forms should be promoted.

I view this bill as I do a rough draft in writing. Let's see what works and make what doesn't better. But you don't know until you put it out there! SOMETHING had to be done!

Tammy

Once again, we agree!

That is a great way to put it. Thanks for sharing Gary's words!

I am disappointed we don't have a public option. Very disappointed. But hopeful that its time will come.

Rusty cars, baby steps, whatever it takes to get some change is good.

I watch Grey's Anatomy and when one of the characters was angry another character said to sing like Cindy Lou in Whoville even when the Grinch stole Christmas - great way to deal frustration, wish the teabaggers would adopt it!

Suzy

Well you know I'm thrilled to have any health care since I've been routinely denied because of prior conditions. I agree with Lindsay, the biggest complainers are the ones who already have insurance. I, for one, want them all to STFU.

And as to the US spending more on health care, it's important to point out that one of the reasons we spend so much is because we have over 300 million people in the US. Who else does? The PRC and the old USSR.

Did you hear Obama in Portland, ME, today? He sounded almost giddy. It was a tremendous accomplishment to get anything done at all, I'm thinking; even if it was just an insurance reform bill, essentially...

I loved Gary's comment, too.
Whenever someone bashes government-run health care as an option, I point out that the military families already have this -- and while it isn't perfect, it works pretty well.
