As I have been saying all along, be careful what you wish for (not you…everyone who supports this monstrosity…). The American people are clearly against this government fiasco mucking through congress. But I don’t think this government cares one bit…

Unfortunately, no matter how good any proposed plan is, or how beneficial to the majority, a small vocal and virulent minority will continue to try and sabotage any universal health plan. Misinformation such as the red herring that the first bill continue death panels (shame on you, Sara Palin!), will continue to be promlugated by individuals and groups who’s only concern is that their pockets remain full.

I don’t know that we will ever achieve complete equity across all economic/race/sex barriers, but at least Mr. Obama is making a sincere effort. He made promises to place America and it’s people’s well-being first. He is trying to fulfill those promises. If the special interest groups and their Congressional lackeys could be put in their proper place (not in control), some of the things he wanted to provide for this country could be accomplished.
