Re: Obama Dumbs Down Health Ins. Bill

The current bill isnt that bad. Sure, it doesnt have a public option, but it expands healthcare to more people and provides a foundation for further improvement. Its as centrist as a bill can be, and Republicans still wont vote for it, because its the idea of a Democrat.
