    Just do it!
    The Republican Party's leadership has shown complete disdain for the will of the people for change, and continues to thwart efforts by the Democrats in Congress to provide universal healthcare to all Americans.
    Hundreds of billions of dollars have been spent to wage war on terror, a freaking noun, without a peep from the chicken hawks as to its cost in blood and treasure.
    Yet today the same fiscal neophytes on the right claim Obama&Co are breaking the bank by working towards the reform of how we pay for healhcare.
    Worse, the Palin/Gingrich fringe run around doing the Henny Penny Polka, stirring up anger with divisive rhetoric and laying the blame on Democrats who were elected to fix the myriad of problems our nation faces today.

    Do it! Go Go Go! (Come on, folks, let's cheer this across the finish line.) Go Go Go HeathCare 2010 (And the Democrats chances to hold maybe 10 seats in the Congress after November elections.)

    Somebody remind me who it was that, in '06, told us all that reconciliation was against the very ideals of the Founders?

    Except, of course, the WILL of the PEOPLE is clear. We don't WANT the bullshit which President Obama and Speaker Pelousy and "Leader" Reid are trying to peddle. See, for example: Health Care Reform - Rasmussen Reports

    Accordingly, putting Fly Catcher's deliberate lie to the side, the reality is that it is the liberal Democratics who are the ones who are busy demonstrating complete disdain for the will of the people!

    Or, you might say the voters of MA, NJ, and VA recently sent an unequivocal message to Dimocrats for their complete disdain for the will of the people.

    Well, I guess what sucks is now neither party agrees with what they said in '06.

    Reconciliation NOW

    GOP has clearly shown they will not support any healthcare reform. An open invitation to put in what they wanted in return for supporting the bill was rejected. The GOP will do whatever it can to stop any reform. Just like they have done the last 50 years.

    Show some Balls Dems! Its now or never


    What would the GOP do if they were in your shoes?

    I'm going to hop on a high horse for a second; though, and say that a fuck-ton of people who voted "for or against" the bill don't even really understand how it would work and/or if the rhetoric against it was "actually" true or not in all cases. I'd make this bet if it were provable.
