Health Care Reform: By Saying No, Is This Where the Republican Party Has Gone to Die?

At AlterNet.com today, Adele Stan makes the health care debate stakes crystal clear:

If President Barack Obama succeeds in signing a major health care reform bill into law — one that provides a public plan for people currently priced out of the system — he will achieve what at least three presidents before him had hoped for, and failed to do. And he will likely deprive the Republican minority in Congress from anything approaching a comeback in the 2010 midterm elections. However, if health care reform does not pass early in Obama’s term, the Democrats will likely face midterm elections amid rising unemployment figures with a record of having passed legislation characterized as “bailouts” for megabanks and large corporations — bills whose benefits to the economy have little impact on the person who has already lost a job.  So GOP leaders are focused like a laser beam on stopping health-care reform in its tracks.

    Soetoro is not even a citizen. He doesnt have the legal authority to validate a parking ticket let alone sign major legislation into law. This bill is a fraud and Soetoro is a complete fraud.
