    The Democra's battle cry for Health Care Reform was that over 47,000 people would die every day because they didn't have health care. If this was true, why doesn't the benefits of health care reform kick in earlier than 4 years from now. Think of all the potential Democratic voters lives they could be saving. How much hypocracy is there here in this fine example of Democratic leadership?

    When the Clintons tried it the numbers were: 30 million uninsured and every year that number doubles! or something like that so that by today there would be 500 Billion uninsured Americans

    Um, just to keep the record straight, according to Rep. Grayson it was 45,000/year not /day! Although, he was still full of shit, but that is besides the point.

    That means over 189K people will die before it kicks in. According to his logic and math.

    We need to start funneling more money into the Healthcare Bill to get more care....RIGHT NOW


    We should start by bringing back the Public Option

    Now there's a good campaign theme for GOP'ers to run on...

    ...the healthcare bill we tried to kill doesn't go far enough, fast enough.

    lol, then the Republicans can explain how their vow to repeal it will save more lives, faster.

    unbelievable :lol:
