1. Thanks. The great thing about Wendell Potter is
they know they (opponents) can't attack him and say he doesn't know what he is talking about.

2. Bought and paid for, those congressmembers read off the talking
points like robots. I doubt one of them could withstand an indepth interview requiring them to explain what they are talking about.

Jane Harmon, another one who received over a million dollars from the Healthcare Industry, spouts the same garbage, knowingly lying to the public.

There is a scene in 'Sicko' where the cameras focus on members of Congress walking into the Capitol building. A green price tag is placed over each one with the amount they've taken from the Industry. Very effective, and each one of them as expected, is opposed to any reform.

According to the movie, there are 4 Healthcare Ind. lobbiests working every Congressman.

When will the people be represented? They take donations from the people, but there's no way the people can afford what it would cost to get them on their side.

I think people ought to think twice before donating to any candidate, at least look at their record and if they are getting money from big Corporations, give the money to someone, like the Civil Liberties Union eg, who actually fight for the people.

These greedy, power-hunger representatives of the corporations, make me sick.

fense about H-C reform. This dude blows all those repug naysayers out of the water. For anyone who opposes Obama's plan, should just go to hell. And that includes people like Ron Wyden of Oregon who I had a tremendous amount of respect for. Not any more. He thinks we should wait and give this process more time. Same goes for Bacus, or Conrad, Di-Fi, etc. I'm really pissed at people like these. But unfortunately, they think of their campaign $$$ before what is important to me--or anyone else.

This video should be a commercial. It should be on evey day till this passes--just so repugs know we are wise to their vial contempt for Americans who are suffering. My dream would be a guest with "Sean Hasen't-Any" and be able to tell him to go fuck himself. I can't stand vial immature, selfish people. And Senator Wyden, if you are reading this, GO FUCK YOURSELF. YOU'RE FIRED NEXT ELECTION.

I'm not that computer savy, but someone should distribute this video in samll bites to as many places as possible. If we are going to fight the corporate bastards who are trying to kill us, then fight fire with fire. Damn, it would be nice to have my own television show.
