For those of you claim he should be commended for adhering to what his constituents want; Is it really what they want or what they have been told they want?
I think it is a fairly safe bet that very few Americans that are opposed to this reform have even bothered to read the 1000 page document for themselves.
Rather, they have formed their opinions of it based upon the propaganda and misinformation that is spread via certain media conglomerates throughout the US.
I would take that same bet for the Americans who are FOR it.
This is what I find funny. It doesn't matter what the bill is or who is proposing what, those who are in favor for it always act smarter then those who are in opposistion.
You can say what you want, but I doubt you have read this bill. If you are brave enough to admit the truth, tell me something. Why are you for it when you have no idea what it says?
Maybe it is you who has formed your opinion around propaganda?

For those of you who have not read this bill (I have) and would like to, and possibly beat Inhofe in reading it before him, here you go :
Healthcare Reform Bill : PDF 1018 pages
Let's read it if you have not and bring it into the discussion and intelligently speak on why Inhofe might not have bothered to read it.

Since this is ATS, perhaps this example will drill home what's wrong with this Senator's refusal to even read the Bill:
Anyone remember The Patriot Act? They passed that one without reading it, just voted along party lines.
And don't even get me started on the Bank Bailout Legislation...
I think the American people have some surprises in store for them. The people who want health care reform are at present being drowned out by the cries of the naysayers, but before this is over they will be heard.
The rationale is simple:
Anything President Obama does -- bad.
Anything Democrats do--bad
People who say no to bad things--good.
