"Is introduced"???

The bill HAS BEEN INTRODUCED.

Did you mean to say, passed by the House and Senate and sent to the President for signature?

Is that what you meant?

Democrats: The party of damned if you do, damned if you don't in 2009.

Get voted out of office by the right/center-right if you do vote for the public option.

Get voted out of office by the left/center-left if you don't vote for the public option. (see the Union stance on this for your proof)

It must suck to be a Democrat today!

Considering that Medicare/medicaid are in fact single payer socialized medicine that was enacted in 1965- the 'Public Option' seems like scant progress in health care reform since the mid 1960s.

It amazes me that the richest nation in the world, allows for profit predatory companies to entrust the health of its citizens to vulture like insurance companies.

In a nation that prides itself as a paragon of virtue and moral ethics- the USA ranks in health care near the bottom for all western industrialized countries.

Yet allows the CEO's of health insurance companies to receive 25 million dollars a year in compensation, live in luxurious mansions- yet Americans die every day for being unable to see a Doctor.

"Love this bill"? No, I don't "love" the legislation.

However, recognizing that we need certain health insurance reforms in this country, this legislation has now at least a chance of being the basis for a decent bill that can help all Americans.

But, I don't "love" it.

Without a public option, that bill will bone everyone over. No change in this case is far far better than "reform" if one can even call it that.
