It’s time for the Democrats and the Obama administration to cowboy up.
Forget the Republicans. They are too much in the pocket of the insurance industry and the drug companies to ever vote for health care reform.
We the People urge you to use your muscle, guys. We the Voters gave you clear majorities in both the House and Senate. Use it. Get a bill that includes the public option. Vote it up or down, but vote!
Every day you wait, you lose more ground to the Republican minority that is fighting a smarter, meaner, nastier battle than you seem capable of.
The organized armed protesters are not going away. The organized shouters are not going away. Insurance companies have too much invested in preserving the status quo.
PS--I'm not the only senior who feels this way. Elderbloggers from across the nation are registering their strong belief that we need health care reform. Check out their work at Ronni Bennet's blog, As Time Goes By.
