HEAR US CONGRESS AND OBAMA. We elected you to do a job. We did not elect you to give in to a bunch of screaming jackholes. The reason that healthcare reform has gotten so “complicated” has little to do with the form of proposed bill HR3200 or its content. The majority of opponents would have problems with ANY bill put forward by the current Congress and supported/requested by the Obama administration. Simply put, their base issues are with Obama, not “ObamaCare.” Don’t get me wrong – I have seen a handful of opponents with legitimate concerns regarding the text and provisions, but the overwhelming majority wouldn’t support anything put forward by Dems and/or Obama. Under ANY circumstances. Either they fear and loathe Obama/liberals/change, or they don’t believe that every American is entitled to necessary medical care.
QUIT LISTENING TO THEM. There is NOTHING you can do to please them without alienating those who elected you.
The House bill is still working its way through the committees and still needs some work, and I for one would like to see some assurance and tort reform is also forthcoming. But make no mistake: attempting to make concessions to those who are adamantly opposed to “ObamaCare” will end in futility. This is NOT what the majority elected Obama for. Any bill that does NOT contain a public option is insufficient.
We gave you a mandate – NOW USE IT.
