Vote already, dammit! This is why “reform” will never happen.

Kidney stones are passed easier than health care reform. This is why I can’t stand the Democrats. They’re trying to compromise, and the Republicans want only capitulation. They want [i]nothing[/] done that doesn’t heap more profit on private insurers.

Mike Enzi, one of three Republicans ostensibly negotiating health care reform as part of the Senate’s “Gang of Six,” told a Wyoming town hall crowd that he had no plans to compromise with Democrats and was merely trying to extract concessions.

He assured conservatives that his presence was delaying health care reform.

“If I hadn’t been involved in this process as long as I have and to the depth as I have, you would already have national health care,” he said.

Sen. Jeff Bingaman of New Mexico, said that he would support passing health care with a simple majority if it became clear the GOP wasn’t serious.

Pass Obama’s health care plan

Last night, President Obama challenged Congress to “meet history’s test” and finally fix our broken health care system. He pledged to seek common ground between Democrats and Republicans, and assured them all: “My door is always open.”

Republicans responded by heckling, booing, and hissing. Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) screamed out “You lie!” as the President defended his health care plan against false right-wing attacks.

We can’t afford to let right-wing extremists like Joe Wilson hold health care reform hostage. As Obama put it, “the time for games has passed. Now is the season for action.” Let’s send a message to Congress, demanding swift action to pass real health care reform.

A compiled petition with your individual comment will be presented to your senators and representative.
