Lunacy Over Health Care and Insurance Reforms

It's getting ugly out there -- rabid, illogical and often just plain old-fashioned lying -- as efforts are made to change the way insurance and health care work.

Really ugly -- but not really surprising, given that the voices from the Right are led by the small-minded self-aggrandizers like Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin.

I have to disagree after watching the Arlen Spectre town hall meeting this morning. There were several people who have read the bill that is available as it is being debated. The congressman didn't argue with any of the parts that were quoted other than to say it wasn't presented to the Senate yet, which those quoted had stated. People just have just gotten tired of government getting bigger be it Republican or Democrat. Obama promised change and all we get is another politician.

ahem - you'll find his last name is Specter not "Spectre" which is something else though certainly akin to the massive fearful yowls i keep hearing. and since he also switched parties, from Republican to Democrat, i can't say i'm surprised he's getting a lot of heat and media attention.
