I will start by saying I didn't sit through all of this, it was too painful. Of course, one of the people maneuvered to make a comment had a medical horror story involving his wife.
Tragedy is unfortunate, but it is a part of life that almost no family avoids. That is why it is so important to make sure you are properly insured. If you are not going to take the time to make sure you are prepared then do not be surprised and blame others when you are devastated.
Giffords told us nothing new. She appeared because she was afraid not to and she picked the safest environment she could.
We heard the same old argument that the health bill does not give coverage to illegals. However, if the bill does not specifically deny it, the courts will interpret it as covering them. Giffords knows that.
She jumped on the tort reform bandwagon, so obviously she hasn't talked to Howard Dean. Here's what he had to say. “Here is why tort reform is not in the bill. When you go to pass a really enormous bill like that the more stuff you put in, the more enemies you make, right? And the reason why tort reform is not in the bill is because the people who wrote it did not want to take on the trial lawyers in addition to everybody else they were taking on, and that is the plain and simple truth. Now, that’s the truth.”
So, let's see what Gabby does with all this constituent feedback. Despite her delight at being a blue dog donkey, my money is on her falling into line with the Obama agenda, once again. When Rahm tells the zombies to unite, what choice do they have?
