    make similar arguments?

    No, Sen. Nelson, it won't be easy, because you'd have to say no the to private health care insurance industry. And we understand that for a congressmember, saying no to big business and yes to the American people is always hard. It shouldn't be, but it is.

    And this is precisely why we didn't get health care reform three presidents ago. Like then, it's so much easier to label people supporting real reform as idiots and loons, rather than to do the right thing. Trust me, Sen. Nelson, we get it.
