It’s a great thing to have leadership discuss these issues face to face, in public view. President Obama promised, and people expected, that there would be a full national conversation about health care. It’s a big issue and a big part of our lives after all.
Instead, so far we’ve gotten a series of health care “packages”—the House bill, the Senate bill. The President put forward a “package” earlier in the week. But I don’t think the people want dealmaking. They want discussion and debate, then decisions.
Today is your day to be part of that discussion, debate, and decisionmaking. Don’t blow it! Pay attention, people!
Once again, you’re welcome to comment and debate below.
