Healthcare is coming...even though it may be slavery
To Health care reform opposition, Senate majority leader Harry Reid stated:
"You think you've heard these same excuses before, you're right. When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said, slow down, it's too early. Let's wait. Things aren't bad enough."
Democrats are supposed to be the intellectuals, capable of debate and that's the response to reform opposition. Moreover, Reid needs to recheck history in which the Republicans NOT the Democrats brought us civil rights.
Yes Republicans are a joke and did nothing for years, but this is a 2,000 page bill that NO ONE has read, we don't have the money for and most polled Americans are opposed to. This bill doesn't fix ANY of the problems, except put insurance out of business.
I will stand by my prediction: we will have a socialize health care takeover bill by the end of the year. NO QUESTION, NO DOUBT.
While every "expert" predicts delay after delay and debate after debate, only one focus lines the backdrop of distractions - get health care done.
The Senate will pass a bill and it will go to the House for a vote WITHOUT changes - this will not require more debate, financial analysis or conference. Nancy Pelosi has the votes and will deliver the bill - all but gift wrapped for the President to sign.
