The Republican party as the party of “no” (as in “no ideas,” “no solutions other than the status quo”) is doing everything they can to undermine universal health care. You can sense the fear in them that the status quo they created is about to be history.
These buffoons led by Michael Steele and Rush Limbaugh really don’t care about America–they care about power and doing everything they can to undermine Barack Obama to give the GOP a chance to win in 2012. It’s not going to work. The American people are smarter than that.
We have all the frickin’ money to pay for wars that the last Republican administration got us into to yet we can’t take care of ourselves with respect to health care? I think not.
This isn’t an issue of money; it’s an issue of priorities.
The GOP has the wrong priorities for America.
The GOP doesn’t want government involvement in health care as they don’t want government making decisions for Americans yet they forget that, for those who are fortunate enough the have health insurance, insurance companies make decisions ever day with no oversight from anyone. Who do you think is benefiting from that?

The GOP needs to take a sabbatical and quit blocking and tackling merely in the hope that they will look more attractive in the next election cycle.
The GOP continues to be the party of FUD: fear, uncertainty and doubt. They aren’t the party of ideas–they just want to throw stones at anyone and everything that doesn’t think like they do. They think that “doing the right thing” such as providing health care for our citizen is “socialism.” As far as I’m concerned, they are guilty of ignoramus-ism and buffoonery.
It’s important to remember that only about 21% of Americans identify themselves as Republicans. Let’s not let that small minority undermine something this important to American.
I urge the Democrats to fashion the best program they can and vote it in. Don’t wait for the GOP to get on board.
