    There is one question, or idea, not being answered, or mentioned, in this whole health care reform initiative: Instead, constituents are randomly ranting stereotypical slogans and politicians are fumbling over words as if they have no idea of the subject matter.

    Why are americans not being offered the same health care coverage as our elected legislators; that is, a health care program identical to that offered to members of congress, or members of state houses? In other words, in all the heated debates in congress and all the town hall meetings--across the nation--why are congress members not telling us about an idea they have to offer every US citizen the same health care coverage, or health insurance program that congress members have-- like the coverage that's treating Senator Kennedy's bout with brain tumors and repairing, our own, Senator Miluski's broken ankle?

    Wouldn't superior health care like that, available to every citizen regardless of socioeconomic background, administered by private insurers, collected by one source and funded by one source, be the right and reasonable solution to our health care access woe's?

    That is question No. 1; now, question No. 2: Why is the media (who by all rights serves as the "4th branch of government") not driving that idea home?

    I am glad this debate is going on because now the public is being educated to how much they have been ripped off, and how much better the rest of the developed world does healthcare.

    In the end we will all have a national health insurance option.

    That's really easy to say when the medical services for 535 congressweasels are being supported by 300 million of the proleteriat.

    Republicans including Reagan have attacked Medicare since before its inception in 1965 during Johnson's so-called "Great Society" days...

    However it is not politically feasible to attack Medicare today because that would just scare all the oldsters who must depend on it.....Medicare must be phased out over time....that is another issue....
