    They say when your enemy is eating himself alive the best thing to do is pass the salt.

    :clap2::clap2::clap2:

    They can't admit to it because of Obama's promise to cut taxes for 95% of us....but most of the Dems still want to boost our taxes and now they've been looking at bringing back the Public Option again. They've been talking about it for a few weeks now.
    There are some Democrats calling for keeping the Bush tax-cuts but they seem to be the ones that are the most in trouble in their states.

    This is a hoot. EVUL HMOs and the Medical System are ranked higher than Congress and the Medical System ranks higher than the Presidency.

    And we're supposed to trust Congress and Obama to reform a Medical System in which people have more confidence than them?

    Putting the public option in to action would be a fantastic idea. A real way to lower costs for everyone. We should be so lucky that a real public option passes. I wont hold my breath though.

    This is an election-year tactic. Whether they win or lose on this bill the real purpose is to energize their base for November.

    They're still poised to loose regardless of effort. It's inevitable with so many seats they hold.

    Why are you afraid of a public option?

    Yes because we all know that when government gives it away, it suddenly becomes FREE. Right?
    You fucking ignorant turd. Public option will result in rationing health care. It has to. There is no other alternative.
