    Why a Congress controlled by Democrats was so opposed to single-payer? We had a rally for health care and a couple of thousand people showed up. We didn't make the evening news, but a few tea-party'ers disrupting a town-hall meeting was major news. It was so interesting to see how even our local news chose to 'frame' the 'debate'. All of the people that represent me were on the record as for the public option. And yet, with a clear majority the votes were not there...not even close. I know this truly is the fault of the President, but you would think that at some point people would contact those they elect to represent them, to legislate with their welfare in mind.
