  1. And, again, what about the Majority of Americans who DON’T want this Bill passed???

    Health Care For America Now! is the same group that had that Rally in Seattle last May. Funny thing though, their pre-printed event was covered by the media while the hundreds across the street in opposition who came from around the state on their own with homemade signs were ignored by the press. Even when the shouts from those across the street overpowered those permitted at Westlake Center on microphones to the point they had to stop and put up curtains behind their stage.

    I’d like to see an honest press cover both sides of the story outside of an Editorial.

    If you look at the Health Care articles on this site and read the comments you’ll see the spitting venom on this issue. Why is it ok for a few to demand the rest of us pay? Worse than that, to demand that our children or grandchildren pay. Not in my America.

    The silent majority is standing up and it’s about time.

    Your exactly right no one wants this passed.
