    Well, Obama just finished his speech. While he did throw Republicans a bone talking about malpractice reform, he threw off the gloves for the public option.

    Public option or bust!

    This was, by far, his best speech since the inauguration. Unfortunately for the administration, he did little more than re-emphasize the Democrat talking points that have been circulating around the country for the past month. His speech put a new wax on an used car, so to speak.

    Combine the fact the Obama presented no new information, and indeed admitted a lack of specifics, with the small sliver of the population watching this address, and I predict any bump in the polls for his plan will be small and short-lived.

    Will it be enough to get HR 3200 passed? That's up for the Democrats to determine...

    You can keep the insurance you have - not so fast Mr. President

    No *bortion - unles...

    No illegals - except...

    Nothing new. More lies spins and half truths. I don't see much compromise.

    Obama just buried the Republicans.

    Great moment....Republicans' standing ovation for protecting bad doctors.

    Loved it!

    Do you live in Opposite Land?
    Just in case you haven't been paying attention, the democrats control both the House and the Senate (oh, and the presidency), just exactly how can the republicans stop anything?

    You mean just like in all those other countries that you keep insisting have better and more affordable health care than we do?

    So if we can save $90B a year that means we've wasted $270B since the Dems took control of Congress.

    Terrific

    Chris was going to say something worthwhile, but then Obama's dick went farther up his ass and he posted that.

    Malpractice reform is not for protecting bad doctors.

    It is for protecting good doctors from frivolous lawsuits...and thereby protecting the healthcare system from extraneous and expensive testing.

    Now can he take the muzzle off of Fredo Biden for a few days.

    We all could benefit from a few good belly laughs.

    Chrissy needs the type of doctor that would pull his appendix out through his anal cavity with a pair of rusty pliers.
