    This plan does not include a "public option" but proposes "co-ops" instead.....I wonder how much of this plan Obama will support in his health speech tomorrow...?

    This looks interesting. If it can garner bipartisan support, it could make it. I have always felt the Co-Op is the best option. Government has enough to deal with now.

    Why all the rest of the crap? Just add people the insurance companies won't take on and we're set.

    Co-ops are already allowed, don't need a bill for that.

    Ah yes, the "Gang of 6".

    For those of you who don't know this colorful cast of characters, some of the members:

    Senator Max Baucus (D)

    Max Baucus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Gee, I wonder who he has in mind when he goes to vote, the people who have given him almost $4 million in 5 years or the people who he's suppose to represent? Tough one.

    Senator Chuck Grassley (R)

    Chuck Grassley - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Hmm, so 1/3 of the Gang 6 is on the payroll so far.

    Mike Enzi (R)

    Well, there must be hope from him right?

    Mike Enzi, Gang Of Six Republican, Admits He's Simply Blocking Health Care Reform // Current

    Not Quite..:eusa_eh:

    While what was listed above seems nice, I'm sure it can be easily reversed.

    Which means....the Left wants to manage EVERYBODYS health care....not just provide care to those few who don't have it and need it...

    FYI....it's all about CONTROL...

    ...read my last signature line...
