  •  Proud to Report (13+ / 0-)

    that Ed Shultz opened the show with our request that I sent over the weekend:  He did miss one opportunity when talking with Conrad about the CBO Report - I had provided them the 'key talking points' about the surplus in a longer email.  Consequently, I will send over a singular-focused email dealing with the CBO Report for them to use in the coming days.

    Ed and Staff,

    Here is a list that has been put together by HCAN dealing with the number of people who will be negatively impacted during the August Recess by politicians with a desire to delay the health care legislation process.

    (a) 143,250 people will lose their health insurance coverage

    (b) 53,507 people will file for bankruptcy because they can't pay their medical bills

    (c) 1,265 people will die because they lack coverage

    We are hopeful that you will use these numbers on-air along side an array of pictures of the Blue Dogs that are being the most vocal and obstructive (Hint: Ross - AR).

    Thanks again for everything

    I am certain he tried to get Ross on the show but Ross is a chickenshit - so he went with Kind out of WI.  Of course Kind would not take ownership of his obstructive ways on air.

    •  Ed show is doing a great job on health care. (7+ / 0-)

      I like how he makes it simple but includes enough detail. He's rather good at selecting material to make his points.

        about taking stuff in.  I am working on a refined and simplified talking point for the new CBO report.  He really missed a soft one today from Conrad.  No worries, we will get him ready for the next few days.

      What a waste of air. (This is the caging criminal who served as USAG Eastern District Arkansas for a Bush year. Former Rove ass't.)

      They ignored us. Then they laughed at us. Then they fought us. Then - on July 2nd 2009 - we won! [ht: Mohandas K. Gandhi]
