    Graham and the others continue to insist that the "public" is opposed to a Democratic plan to reform our healthcare system and that they are particularly opposed to the public option. Except for a small group of vocal wingnuts and insurance company shills all indication is that the public very much supports a "government run option". While polls may have indicated 60% of the people(at one time a few weeks ago) did not favor Obama's handling of healthcare reform, that 60% included people like myself who are in favor of a single payer system but are willing to accept a public option as a first step in the same group as insurance company CEOs who want the system to stay exactly as it is. The poll numbers IMHO were very misleading and republican/insurance company sopkesmen like Graham, Boehner and McConnell never get called on it during interviews when they cite these numbers.

    That's America, buddy! So wake up -- to your only logical choice: Me. George Tirebiter
