    Rep. Debbie Dingell said Sunday she “wanted to cry” over the AHCA vote and was “deeply disturbed” by the number of white men involved in its passage. “Most of your [Senate] colleagues…have said that they’re gonna back to square one on [the AHCA],” said MSNBC host Thomas Roberts. “But it’s a majority of men. I think 13 men on the Senate side reviewing this.” Dingell sighed and rolled her eyes before responding. “Look, it deeply disturbed me,” Dingell said. “I watched in shock the picture of the Rose Garden after what happened in the House.

    Well as I type this, Google says 999,97 and change, so by the time you read this, it may in fact have gone over a million. One friend has been watching who is reading it. Something like 24% are reading/viewing in French. My guess? Canadian's in the French speaking areas are looking at this as to what are they going to do after their relief valve for their system is messed up (i.e. the American Health Care System).

    I enquired about getting tickets to the only debate between John Dingell and Dr. Rob Steele. This is the response I got: "Due to the huge demand for tickets the campaign has done a lottery to assign tickets. There were upwards of 1400 requests from donors, workers, and friends. Sorry for raising your hopes... There are none to be had. I had no idea of the demand." For a small auditorium that is a lot of people, the demand outstrips the supply. Something is going on, people are waking up, and want to see this. Maybe it will be history...

    The Truth About Cars ^ | October 16th, 2010 | Ronnie Schreiber
    John Dingell Jr. has represented Michigan’s 15th congressional district for 55 years. His father held the same seat for 22 years before that. Dingell has lived his entire life in Washington, D.C., never in the southwest suburbs of Detroit where his constituents live. For perhaps the first time in his life, Dingell is actually in a political battle. The Detroit Free Press published the results of a poll that showed him 4% down to his challenger, Dr. Rob Steele, a cardiologist from Ann Arbor, with just three weeks to go before the election.
