Quote of the Day

It doesn't surprise me that a recent poll . . . showed that the majority of Americans are confused when it comes to what's actually in health care reform legislation. Who can blame them? The mainstream media is spending their time glorifying political he said she said and shining a spotlight on the organized efforts by a lobbyist firm to disrupt townhalls. Maybe if they'd educate the public about what is actually in health care reform legislation the poll would yield different results. That said, I do believe most Americans would agree on one thing, our health care system does not work well unless you're rich AND healthy until the day you die.

Excellent quote.

There are so many people that no so little about what the health care bill actual is, it's scary.

Why isn't there a huge educational program to explain to people what's going on?

All there ever is is politics. Obama attacking corporation lobbyists; Republicans grinding the Senate to a halt to kill the bill; Fox News spreading hate; the liberals are going crazy.

There's still minimum information on the actual bill's content.
