As the debate continues, I found this refreshingly honest.

Quote of the day :

This health care bill continues the redistribution of wealth to Wall Street at the expense of America's manufacturing and service economies which suffer from costs other countries do not have to bear, especially the cost of health care. America continues to stand out among all industrialized nations for its privatized health care system. As a result, we are less competitive in steel, automotive, aerospace and shipping while other countries subsidize their exports in these areas through socializing the cost of health care.Notwithstanding the fate of H.R. 3962, America will someday come to recognize the broad social and economic benefits of a not-for-profit, single-payer health care system, which is good for the American people and good for America's businesses, with of course the notable exceptions being insurance and pharmaceuticals. -- Congressman Dennis Kucinich

I cannot understand why so many people don't GET this. They must listen to Fox news and then not bother to THINK!

Don't you just want to go up to the panic-stricken people and say, "Hellooo,...McFly..." while knocking your knuckles on their foreheads?

Well...that isn't very tolerant of me is it. I just want some movement forward for a change. It ain't perfect people, in fact it comes from congress so it is bound to be convoluted and a little crazy to administer...but we have to take some baby steps NOW.
