    ... and i noticed that health care reform, which used to be health insurance reform, is now just *health reform*. i don't know why it's morphed into that construct, but every time she mentioned the current bill before congress, she referred to *health reform*.

    anyone know why the care part has been eliminated?

    just curious

    she's an obviously intelligent woman, if often too obviously biased for my taste (not as bad as some on both sides), so i assume there is some reason behind it, but i'm damned if i can figure out what it might be.

    When they start off not being able to tell if they are 30 million or 47 million uninsured, it doesn't matter what you call it, it's all pure crap and propaganda.

    I've noticed this as well. At one of Barry's health campaign speeches last week he referred to it as health insurance reform. They also use to state they were going to cut waste and fraud in medicare and now they say they are going to cut medicare . . . but they don't attach the waste and fraud part. Master magicians know how to use slight of mouth.
