The so called historic health care bill is making its way out of committee and all because one Republican voted for it. What a shame. Democrats have the majority and the power and they depend on Republicans. What? They should ignore the Republicans altogether. They're evil and they are never going to change.

"Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said the legislation would place the nation on a "slippery slope to more and more government control of health care.""

I believe that there are millions of Americans that would disagree most vehemently with Mr. Grassley; might even ask him outside for a comment like that. We want more government control of health care because that's the only thing that works! Under private control we have slipped to unheard of levels in health care. Former Soviet countries have better health care than we do. And the one thing that all of those superior countries have in common is government run health care.

It's too bad there isn't one very public forum on the net where all of the people who have been abused by insurance companies could share their stories and name the companies and the representatives that they had to deal with. Then invite the Senators and representatives to read and comment. Maybe those sharing their stories could include their Zip codes and then the data could be given to the correct Senator and Representative. Let them see how well the 'private' sector deals with their constituents.

Me, I'm still sending emails to my Senators/Representative with the message that I want Single Payer or Medicare for all. I have to keep trying, and I always include my age so that they know that not all elders are stupid.
