So, have you been following those health-care negotiations on C-SPAN?
OK, that was below the belt. Maybe it's unfair to expect the negotiations to be televised just because President Obama promised they would be -- at least eight times. But at least we know that the media will be able to cover the conference to reconcile differences between the House and Senate bills.
Oops, I guess we won't see that either -- because the Democratic leaders have decided to forego the traditional procedure. Instead, they'll rely on a seldom used method known informally as "ping pong," because it involves passing an amended bill back and forth until the House and Senate can agree. Doing it this way lets House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid avoid all that messy public debate and media scrutiny.

This thing is so bad it cannot stand public scrutiny.

The thing about this healthcare scam is this...IF something as unpopular as this is rammed through using bribes, lies, intimidation, and corruption, then the dems can pretty much pass ANYTHING they want...including cancelling the Constititution, communism, gun control, etc.
The point is, it's not so much the healthcare here, it's the precedent for being able to do anything they want to do...it's a COUP...plain and simple. Once this healthcare is under their belt, there will be no stopping them short of a total revolution.
Believe me, neither the left or the right wants a government that is run like this...we will be a dictatorship and America will fade into obsurity.
We need to let them know that they CANNOT foist anything they like upon us, or we're doomed.
