This from the so called leading country of the free world.

Man, oh man, the slime that slinks around our nations capital is never ending. What does that say about the people that voted for this "thing"?
Kangaroo Down Under,
Couldn't have said it better myself.
GOP Rep. Booed For Suggesting Baby Would Die Under Public Option
At a recent town hall meeting, Rep. Pete Olson (R-Texas) was booed for suggesting a baby would have not been born if we had a government-run health care option.
Olson told the story of Britney, a pregnant woman who couldn't find a doctor who would treat her unborn child's heart defect. After being turned away by several, she hunted down a specialist in Detroit who was willing to perform the procedure. Britney is convinced that her son would not have been born if there was a public option then, and she wouldn't have had the choices to find the doctor that she wants.
Over applause, a number of audience members audibly groan. "Oh Jesus Crist, that's terrible," says one attendee. "That's not true," says another.
"For those of you who say it's not true, don't talk to me, talk to Britney," Olson responded.
"The insurance company turned her down, not the government," an audience member says. "The private insurance turned her down, not the government." Others shout back that if there was government-run insurance, she would have been turned away. As the meeting devolves into shouting back-and-forth, Olson just says, "I want to thank you all for coming." LinkHere

GOP Rep: We'll Repeal Health Care Reform If It Passes
On a conference call last month, Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) hedged a little bit on the question of whether Republicans, if they won a congressional majority in 2010, would repeal a health care bill passed by the 111th Congress. Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) is not hedging.
If they somehow manage to get the votes and get enough Democrats to walk the plank and commit political suicide, in the next Congress, I’ll be chairman Joe Barton of the Energy and Commerce committee, and we’ll repeal it.
Of course, even the most optimistic strategists would call it extremely unlikely that Republicans could get a veto-proof majority in 2010, so this is bluster. But it speaks to Republican confidence that blocking any health care reform is a political winner. LinkHere
