Which myths? Death panels?

It's uncertain if he's even going to come out and strongly support a public option.

Because the senator you're quoting disagrees with the president's policies and hopes that they fail.

i think the GOP has seized on a bitter -- if you will -- current of fear, and they've done a very good job exploiting it.
You have your boogeyman. The real boogeyman here is the 1000+ page House bill being circulated, and moderate Democrats who can't even support it.

Quote:
Shame on the administration for not explaining costs and benefits better, but the GOP has proved, again, that they are masterful manipulators of fear, whether in power or not.
Once again, this Congress should easily have the votes on a viable health care bill.

But the president has another at-bat next Wednesday...

If you have to ask that, you've either not been listening, or you believe them yourself.

We're not like other countries, however most other countries want to become more like us.

Do the math.

I love the irony that the name plate says Mr. Rogers.



Also - how do I get on one of these Death Panels? What sort of degree would I need? I think I'd be very good at making decision concerning who lives or dies cause I'm a good judge of character, and I kinda don't like people all that much, so I'm pretty sure I could save the govt MILLIONS!

YouTube - Franken Talks Down Angry Mob

A rational discussion between teabaggers and one of Satan's minions? Say it ain't so!

I think everyone should watch this so we know that not every teabagger is batshit insane, and to show that not even Sen. Franklin is a radical tirade-shouting lunatic. And I don't even like him.

I didn't think much of him outside of SNL, but I like that clip...

The death panel thing is silly.

What other myths are you eluding to?

I like the accidental use of "eluding" in here. Very ironic.

Gee, since you're interested, and since googling must be too difficult a task for you, I took five seconds and did the hard work.
