Houston- Democrats are running scared after losing the late Senator Ted Kennedy's seat in Massachusetts. So what do they do? Abandon healthcare reform and shift to the economy and jobs. This maybe good for mid term elections, but it is bad for the country. My perspective is personal. My wife just completed a 7 hour brain surgery by a skilled surgical team. She has been afforded the best of healthcare in the world at the renown Houston Medical Center. I wonder if she would have been sentenced to a slow death like 45,000 others a year who lack healthcare in America? I am greatful to have good health insurance, but what about others?
I am so angry at the Democrats, I could scream! Why are they so concerned about "bluedog" Democrats. These Republicans in Democrats clothing are the creation of Dr. Howard Yee-Haw Dean. The former DNC Chair's monster, just like Dr. Frankenstein's, has turned on its master. Howard Dean should shut his pie hole and go away. It is time for the party to purge itself just like the Republicans are doing. Let Democrats be liberal to moderate and Republicans conservative to moderate. We independents will keep ourselves were we are - ahead of both of them.
The Supreme Court recently gave big money the open door, window and everything else to take what little sense of democracy there is away from the people. If you think politicans are puppets of special interest now, just wait until the next election. For the most part, the people are screwed. Stand up now and tell the Democrats to do what we independents put them in office to do: make a change. Forget Wall Street and K Street. Do the people's work.
