According to the latest poll by CBS, 62% of Americans want republicans to continue challenging the health care bill. This includes 89% of republicans and 66% of independents polled. Surprisingly, 41% of democrats want the republicans to continue challenging the bill.
And you can't claim that CBS is too "right leaning."
I hope that the bill/law is changed over time to make it better for everyone!

There has been so much rhetoric and spinning by the GOP, many people want to challenge the bill for items that are not even in the bill! For example, every single second a Pro-Life advocate is posting and pleading to stop the bill as it funds abortions. The bill strictly prohibits federal funding for abortions and does nothing to change abortion law. As the facts come out (facts are stubborn), more people will support the bill as evidenced by the recent USA/Gallop poll showing that more people now support the bill vs those that oppose it.
I certainly don't think it is perfect but it is hard to argue that it is not a huge step in the correct direction.
This is one of those situations where reform is much needed but hasty decisions were made in lieu of patient discussions. I agree with health care reform, I also agree that the current plan could still use further refining.
This is just the point I have been trying to make. Yes we do need some type of reform to health care but the right thing done the wrong way is still wrong.
Too much pork fat in this bill.
I do not agree with giving INMATES VIAGRA.
Well, they didn't ask ME. Those polls are so deceiving...
What would you like to see changed, Habee?
For one thing, I wish some of the benefits went into effect sooner. For another, the huge cut in Medicare scares me. I would also like to see the price of prescription drugs addressed, with generics becoming available sooner. We need more 24/7 walk-in clinics that would reserve emergency rooms for real emergencies.
I also don't like the fact that people are forced to buy health insurance. There are things I like about the law, also.

...for Obama to shut up, I'd imagine. He was on the tube today demanding reconciliation and essentially pushing a health reform bill that the public doesn't want down that public's throat. I imagine a lot of dems are looking to November and wishing he'd just shut up already.

I thought this article was interesting, especially since it appeared in the NYT. According to this guru, costs will INCREASE, not decrease. This is the same guru that democrats hailed as wonderful when he challenged Bush. Don't worry, though, costs will increase by only a few billion, and what's a...

You know it's bad when even members of her own party tell her to "quit spreading lies." This is exactly the kind of misinformation that is causing people to knee-jerk react against the entire HC bill. And it's only one small part. And it's not even true AND is no longer being...
