Lynn, I appreciate your comments on television and now follow you on Twitter.
I'm for the final health care bill. I heard some decent proposals from Republicans. One was not to let insurance companies take a surviving spouse of the other spouse's policy and them put her or him on a higher cost policy. Perhaps, you might encourage Republicans to talk up such matters rather than their a priori not accepting any Democratic solution.
Is it at all possible to get bipartisan approval of parts of the bill on a part by part enactment of the bill rather than the whole one?
Union members seem to be short changed with their expensive plans that encourage extra costs that their companies should exchange for cheaper but good plans and also give get them better pay.
And I favor adding the illegal immigrants in that they add to the economy and cannot legally get government aid but pay into the system.
Thanks.

Which bill is that? Did the bill clear the last House committee where it was stuck? Please more info needed.

IF ALL THE DEMOCRATS WOULD STEP UP TO THE PLATE, THE GAME WOULD BE OVER, THEY KEEP SEEKING APPROVAL FROM THE OPPOSING TEAM, JUST MY OPINION!
PRESIDENT OBAMA IS A REAL PRESIDENT!
HE KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON!

HealthCare Reform is an Idea Whose time has Come...., and we must not allow Republican hacks to Obstruct and "SwiftBoat" this most needed reform, because Healthcare costs have spiraled out of control and are one of the basic culprits Directly related to our collapsing economic condition. We are drowning in this growing quicksand, which calls for an urgent and immediate address and attention. This is its time -- this is its moment.


GOP sponsered Media and politicans loves to talk about Pres. Obama's apparent sinking poll numbers, but when one is on the Battlefield for positive change, one cannot pause to worry and fret about "allegdely" sinking poll numbers.... that is a "trojan horse", For One cannot worry about the Separated Self, when they have the People's business to do!

It is hard to Change old habits of greed and selfish power to one of cooperation and a public good for all. Pres. Obama is going up against a Monster of Greed and Corruption that does not want to give up its power and control. This monster will Lie, Steal and Deceive. We the people must not allow this Monster of Corruption to continue to have its way, which will only continue to bankrupt the United States. We must stand firm with Pres. Obama who truly represents the Change the people need and have voted for.

GOP Media and politicians, say Pres. Obama is doig too much at one time, but if we in our own lives can do more than One thing at a time, so can Congress, and it is their duty and business to do so. If those in Congress want to continue to be a Do Nothing Congress, than we must elect leaders who can do Something for the whole of humanity and not just the separated self or special interest party.

Members of Congress have great insurance coverage, and a cushy salary. They do not live under the fear of unemployment and no insurance coverage. They are there to work on Behalf of the People, so they too, do not have to live in that fear... Yet, while in the care and leadership of the GOP, Congress has done a miserable job on taking care of the people and now the GOP want to obstruct the Democrats from putting into laws that which will benefit the people and grow the economy, not bankrupt it. But people are turning a deaf ear to the deceitful “Wizards of Oz” for they want us to continue to travel their yellow brick road of deception. We must become immune to their lies and vigilant to their deception if we are to make progress towards sanity again.

I call on those of goodwill to work, speak-up and Stand firm for Change and for transformation -- towards a more just and equitable government for all.
