7. I am not one of those "kill the bill" or "public option or else" type of person
But I just wrote to my representative, Chris Van Hollen, here in Maryland (suburban DC) saying that I expect him to fight against this burden on the middle class or he will lose my support. Why should I go out to vote, volunteer, and donate money to a party that votes against my own interest and work in favor of the health insurance industry?

I consider myself a progressive Democrat and this is my attitude. So I wonder what middle class independents will have to say once this health care "reform" bill affects their existing coverage and premiums. It's going to be ugly.
