    There is a battle brewing. The Bluedogs are going to be challenged by the Liberals in the Democratic Party. The Public Option portion of the reform bill is in big trouble and the Liberals of the party are targeting the Bluedogs of their party.

    I just hope that the battle doesn't end up costing the country any chance of health care reform. I expect the GOP is very happy about the discourse in the Democratic Party. There is no lock step with the Dems. The extreme wings of the Democratic Party will either forge a compromise or kill the entire effort.

    My favorite healthcare moment was when a women told Obama she didn't want any socialized medicine, and they better not touch her Medicare.

    Priceless...

    Yes, a dumbass liberal who depends on Medicare...incredible...

    She should drag her frail body out on the street, gain a full time job, and earn health insurance like everyone else!

    Conservatives don't show up to his press conferences, they know they won't be allowed to ask questions.
    When are you going to realize that he controls his his press conferences and town hall meetings? Are you this stupid in real life, or do you just act this way on the internet?

    Why would you be so hardhearted about her? Are you liberal? Learn some compassion.

    I would wager the old woman did not understand what health care refrom means. She may be neither liberal nor conservative. The irony is that she is dead set against the Government doing anything to reform health care, because she is dependent on an exisiting health care program. She has been mislead by the many extremes that she has heard from the talking heads on TV.

    It is a time proven ploy. Confusion breeds discourse, which eventually breeds failure.

    Liberals that depend on government programs are usually easily swayed by slick talking politicians. It's a time proven ploy.
