Without the medicare option and the public option on the table, what sort of reform does the Senate bill have on health care? Isn't this like writing up a bunch of nothing and stamping the word reform on it?

Single payer would not be smart so I am glad it is off the table. Maybe implement real changes in the insurance industry and throw in some tort reform and costs would come down. I don't want what Canada has. My mother died thanks to their system. Her heart procedure was considered elective in America it is considered an emergency and she would be alive had she lived here or had came here for treatment. So I am thrilled it is off the table and hope our Congress will start from scratch and actually fix the system and not just create another Gov Bureaucracy.

It just shows that the longer they play with any legislation, the worse it gets.
And what about the additional spending bill that was signed over the weekend? I thought he was against pork barrell projects, yet there were more than 5,000 of them packed in there. What happened to that 'line by line' bs he was promising? Guess that went out the window with the transparency. Closed door pork parties in DC again. Yeah, how's that hope and change workin' for us?
