94. Very well said - and about health care
Health care "reform" is the one that really upsets me the most. The fact is Richard Nixon offered a more progressive health care reform bill in the early 70's than this Obama/Insurance Company scheme. Remember, Ted Kennedy said his biggest regret in all his years in the senate was to not work with Nixon on his bipartisan health bill. The Obama "reform" is more of the same, but worse in the sense that many think we've now "done reform." We haven't done CRAP except tweak it here and there with a couple of good things, but made it worse by turning even more over to the big insurance companies. This action by the president I, and so many of you, worked to elect is scandalous.
