3. Agree. IMO, the real reason the HCR bills have received the negative reactions has been the
detailed 24/7 coverage of nearly every step of the legislative process.

This is a good thing and we can see the problems and react.

But, in my lifetime I have never seen this much coverage of any legislation.

People are "watching the sausage being made" and see the ugly process and the people fighting while making the "sausage". The bills do include some bad legislation, but again, the "sausage making process" covered in great detail by the media is a big reason for the negative reactions.
