WASHINGTON, Sept. 1 (UPI) -- Republicans will keep up the pressure on healthcare reform once the U.S. Congress returns to Washington next week, GOP leaders vow.

During the summer recess, lawmakers caught a sometimes loud earful from constituents during town halls in their home states, courtesy of opponents to healthcare reform.

Did we expect anything else?? Hopefully this has been a painful lesson for Obama and has taught him that you cannot play nice with these radical rightist aholes anymore. Hopefully the gloves come off now and he smashes their faces in the dirt!

The money from Dick Armey's lobbying firm Freedom Works was well spent. They found plenty of folks with leather lungs.

See how idiotic the above post is. The liberals are just like the Republicans and they hate themselves for it.

How pathetic!

Good. Enough of this healthcare debacle. Enough of trying to force a massive change on an American public that obviously does not want it.

Lets start with smaller steps, like helping the medical industry reform some of their nastier habits like balance billing.

Why are republicans so hateful? That's what I want to know. What IS their problem? I detest them. I really do. I've always said there are two kinds of republicans - stupid or greedy and selfish.

I agree with KevK.

uhm.... well.... err....

you might want to run that number by John Zogby. His data is a little different than yours.

and last week, the dems were all excited because support of their plan finally stablized around 45%... so even the dems numbers are a bit different than yours.

but hey who am I to put facts in the path of your awesome argument!
