    The real tragedy and heartbreak over the Democrats effort to ram their Healthcare bill into law is not that it is foolishly costly, will blow a giant hole in the Federal budget, jack up bigtime the cost of insurance purchased on the individual market and with the community health insurance option put America on an unescapable trajectory to a single payer government run health insurance system that the American people will hate and it will do all of these things the real tragedy is that the Democrat leadership is blowing priceless leverage in negotiating a bi-partisan healthcare bill that would pass into law and be a dramatic improvement over the present system and would make them look great with the American electorate. On this reconciliation option no human being knows whether the Democrats will succeed or not but what many American human beings know is that they could have used the threat of this option to get a health care bill that would have expanded insurance coverage to ten to fifteen million Americans, stopped insurance company abuses and made dramatic steps in holding down and stabilizing health insurance costs and wouldn't be economically unfair and dangerous.



    If the Democrats win in this healthcare crap shoot they will be real happy for a short time that is until America gets into the thick of the election season and Democrats have to defend this terrible legislation. But if the Democrats lose in this crap shoot you can bank on the Republicans saying forget it to any healthcare reform bill this year you liberals are gettin a butt-kickin in November and we'll see you in committee meetings in 2011 and the Democrats will then have to be super lucky to get any bill that provides government financial assistance to lower and middle class Americans that do and will desperately need financial help to buy health insurance no matter if the Democrats and Republicans get their wish list passed into law on cutting health insurance costs. So pursue your arrogance you Democrats and I think many Americans hope you are oustandingly haunted for many years by this gamble your taking which is a gamble of many millions of Americans lives when it comes to relief on health care for them!

    I honestly believe that if they force this bill upon us, and even if somehow they get it passed through conventional means, that it will spell out the end of Democratic power for many years. The people want better health care, But they do not want higher taxes for 4 years before any changes take place in the system. How do you justify that? You pay for 4 years before you see anything? Only in the US Congress.

    Do not vote for incumbents.

    Hmmm tough choice here:

    Nothing - Things stay the same

    Something - things get worse.

    Tough choice there.

    The bill will pass because the Dems campaigned that thing would change.

    A passed bill will force both parties to talk honestly about it, and the direction, of the country in this election and 2012. The pressure will force the loons of the far left and the far right into the center, where Americans will see them for what they are and defeat them.

    Hopeful wish, Ame®icano, on your part. But a bit unrealistic.

    That's how John Dean described republicans in one of his books. 20% would follow their authoritarian leader off a cliff.
