So far, nice back and forth of where we stand…but no real progress. Unless Obama is willing to SUBTRACT items from his bill, this appears to be a nonstarter.
I have insurance, but as a federal health care worker I know loads of americans without health insurance for many reasons. We really need insurance reform! Perhaps the members of the house and senate should loose their insurance coverage for a while until they get this passed. If they find themselves in the same black hole that many of our fellow american are (not insurance) then they might feel it is more important and finally get the work done.
