Bart has certainly changed his tune from the first three letters I got from him in support of HR 3200 and his yes vote to move it out of committee.
Love those big Pharma "thank Bart commercials". Makes you wonder who Bart is actually working for.
To get re-elected politicians have to listen to the voters. I think Bart heard his constituents during the townhall meetings and telephone calls. Now it is time for him to show some backbone when he gets back to Washington.
I do agree there should be something done about high insurance cost and those that actually cannot afford high insurance premiums. The bills that are being pursued now will only cost everyone more in the long run and the majority of citizens in the US do not want anymore mandatory government control. There are only about 3 good things I can see in the way it stands now. There is no magic wand here folks.
I do not have much, if any, use for politicians and Gordon is no different that the rest, he speaks out of both sides of his mouth depending which way the wind is blowing at the time he speaks.
He's been there too long, time to elect someone else and watch them change into a self-serving 'servant of the people'. What a joke!
I expect we will see new nominees on the ballot at election time.
This comes from the negative ridicule and offended constituents of Bart Gordon.
The professional manner in which some address personal opposition leads me to believe hope and change is on the way.
The vision of future politicians. No hope at all and with very little change.
I think that all Americans should stop listening to politicians, and start getting to the truth of the matter. Politicians take money for companies, people, unions and so on.How can they not be swayed one way or the other. This week the California nurses association presented information about insurance co in CA.. 44% of claims denied! people died waiting for approval. That sounds like a death panel to me!
You're right publius, and that is the crux of the matter, it isn't the healthcare industry but the healtcare insurance industry that is flawed. There should be insurance reform, but it should be at the state level and not the federal level. The feds just need to change their regulation on interstate selling of health insurance.
What scares me is the day after the next elections. If the same tired old poll's get re elected they will pass Nancy's bill in a heartbeat. Time for the good ol boy's and girl's to go.
I think this is all our faults for letting this crap go on for as long as it has - mine included.
