Now I'm not saying our health insurance is great, personally ours sucks beyond words, BUT just because someone makes a movie about one side of the story doesn't mean his facts are correct.

This man is not a sane individual, just like rosie o'donnell. You need to look at all sides of a situation before you can judge and most of us don't have that luxury.

I only say this because I was watching CNN last night and they asked their medical correspondent to check the validity of his movie and some of his numbers he used in the movie were way off.

Don't bite my head off for writing this please, it's just my opinion. Too many of us go with whatever is put in front of us on tv, radio, newspapers which are mostly one-sided information. And usually the negative side.

Okay, I'm done.
While you're at it though, I would suggest not listening to anyone on CNN either. It's entertainment, not news.

We dont because most of us dont have the $$ that Big Business has to buy the advocacy of our "representatives".

This was one of the points being made the other night by MM when he was interviewed by David Brancaccio on NOW (PBS). He mentioned this is the case in Europe. Government actually responds to the PEOPLE instead of the corporations.

GAH. Im SO frustrated today after listening to the speech given by The Cowboy In Chief in honor of Independence Day. He is just SO smug! He talks to people that disagree with him as if they are only doing so because they just dont understand why all of "this" is necessary.
