We were promised real reform if we could just get the Dems 60 seats…

>Well, now’s the time, Democrats. If you blow this one, don’t be surprised when you find you lose your majority after just two short years.

We need health care, not warfare. Yet Dems continue to authorize funds for war, but are looking pretty sheepish on health care reform.

Face it, we need single-payer health care. Every other proposal out there is hogwash. As Dr. Dean says, we are 60 years behind the times on this issue. But even if the “public option” goes through, you can be sure the lobbyists, who have congress by the balls, will make sure it is completely neutered of any real power.

We were told as voters that when the Democrats got 60 seats in the Senate, we would finally get the important things this country so desperately needs. Health care reform is at the top of the list.

So, the question is, are you going to follow through, Democrats, or once again prove that you have no spine? Even with total control in Washington, and the entire country behind real health care reform? If that’s the case, you will have not only blown an historic opportunity for the real “change we need,” you will lose your majority in 2010.
