Pelosi has announced that there will not be a public option in Obamacare dashing any slim hopes the far Left held out that it'd make it into the final bill.
You know what that means? Anyone voting for the bill is dead meat if they're up for re-election this year.
The far Left is going to scream bloody murder... what's the point in playing with healthcare if there's their much-coveted public option? They're already up in arms about all the Obama promised but isn't producing. Having the words spoken definitively by Pelosi is just another nail in the coffin.
The middle on both sides, Independents, Republicans, Libertarians already hate Obamacare for any number of reasons. Increased taxes, increased interference by government in our lives, a government that mucks up anything it stomps its foot into, huge deficits, the need to focus on jobs, jobs, jobs and the economy, yada yada yada.
This is a bill from hell and a vote will send the country in that direction. We hafta do whatever we can to stop it (legally). Yell, scream, write, call, put signs in your yards, join your local Tea Party efforts, check out your local physician groups that's ganging up to try and stop it. Don't just sit there and moan about it. DO something. ACT. Get involved, even if all you can do is give it five minutes a day.
