  •  Woo Hoo Channel 4 & Perlmutter (9+ / 0-)

    They got in a great dig at the end of the report about how the possible cost of healthcare reform would be a trillion. The reporter quoted Perlmutter and said that price would be over 10 years and that we spend that much a year in Iraq and Healthcare reform money would be spent here.

    Bool-yah!  Take that Teabaggers.

      I haven't lived in Colorado for 17 years

      but my cousin lives in Brighton ... I was afraid I'd see him there ... and I think he'd be on the other side

      "Coloradoans Protest President's Healthcare Plan."

      Not a very accurate caption for what actually happened. The anti-reform people were clearly outnumbered by anyone's estimate. My conservative estimate was that it appeared to be a little better than 1 to 1 from where I was standing. Many people here are saying it looked like 3 to 1 if you had a better view of the whole thing. Either way, to call the event a protest of the President's plan is highly misleading.

    •  Tell Ch 4 Congr.gave 13 Trillion Banks w/NOAccout (3+ / 0-)

      NO Accountability - Rushed thru by former Goldman Sachs Executives as Treasury Secy.

      We can tell the Asshole reporters - If they REALLY Care about 1 Trillion - Why don't they do Real Investivative reporting on exactly how the first Trillion that went to the BANKS was spent?

      With the Media - when a Trillion goes to Banks - Crickets! - When A Trillion Might Provide cheaper & more efficient Health Care to hundreds of Millions of citizens? Well that deserves investigation!

      The Whole nation will benefit Hugely from a Public Option - Congress gave the first Trillion to J.P. Morgan, Goldman sachs, etc. with NO strings, NO Accountability & They DON't CARE & Don't Want to know - where that Trillion went!!!!!

      The Banksters Trillion was THEFT - only. Now 13 Trillion to the banks in cash or Credit!!

      So let's get one Measly Trillion BACK - & cover Health Care for a Decade - Argument Over!

      Totally Fed up with these cowards they call reporters.

      Blind loyalty to self-defeating strategies is equally destructive as working for your enemy.
