      'gone'? He's been unhinged for some time.

        Right. So do you support healthcare reform? Or do you believe it should be more or less radical?

          If you have read 'The Hobbit' by JRR Tolkein, then you know how the wizzard Gandalf got a hobbbit and 12 dwarves invited into the home of a rather unfriendly bear, Beorn. Gandalf had them arrive in pairs a few minutes apart until the whole group was inside.

          What we have is as radical as we could have passed this year and it's an important first step. It will be years before our culture is ready for the next step  and years before they are ready for the step after that.  The progressives who wanted everything at once were going to get nothing for their demands. This is good. It's not final.

      The democrats WROTE the bill. He's thinking of GOP legislation which is usually written by the oil companies for the oil companies - or writtten by the banks for the banks - or written by the drug companies for the drug companies. That's how the GOP does legilation.

      This was written BY the Congress FOR the people. The Democrats not only read it - they WROTE it!

      Now isn't there some inherent contradiction to suggest a majority of people were against a bill that ol' JB suggests he didn't read. If he couldn't read the bill, how could 'The People' understand enough to have a rational opposition to it? The opposition was irrational, much of it based on 'misinformation' - and the House was right to vote on the bill based on what they knew was in it rather than the lies that were told about it.
