What we are witnessing taking place in the U.S. Congress is repulsive and revolting; the fact that many of our elected representatives are blatantly and shamelessly stuffing their pockets with campaign contributions from health care corporations when, at the same time, they have been charged with the responsibility to develop effective legislation for health care reform. This is a massive conflict of interest and a failure of these legislators to uphold their oath of office. It is a disgrace to this nation and its people, a national shame.
The GOP, attached by the hip to their corporate masters, long ago lost its shame and conscience, so it is not the least bit surprising that Republicans are refusing to support any reform legislation. They are bought and paid for so it bothers them not a bit. But, even worse than the stance of the Republicans on this issue, is the behavior of the special group of Democrats referred to as the Blue Dogs in the House and those referred to as the Gang of Six in the Senate. These rogue Democrats are not only refusing to promote the interests of the majority of the American people but they are failing to adhere to their own party's platform that specifically calls for health care reform.

The GOP made Medicare reform into a free-for-all for the insurance companies and they're trying to do the same with health care. They are all in the pocket of big corporate interests. Meantime, they claim to be working for the people of America.

So you people really actually support the 1,000+ page healthcare reform bill that is being pushed right now? It's either a YES or NO.
