2. We should all be worried, as long as we are not explained what

"reform" means.

It does not mean that all reforms are bad (most if us probably support lifting the cap on Social Security), but in general, when it comes to reform, it is more on the side of screwing the poor (and to a lesser degree the middle class).

4. I'm worried. Have signed petitions and sent emails to my representatives.

But I did that for single payer in 2009 too.

5. Bernie is BY FAR our greatest Senator. I don't think it's even close.

The Democrats need to learn from him.
