    So I just called and asked if it was true that the Senator never heard from anyone who wanted the publice option, and was told "yes, he made that statement on Thursday" so I gave him my name and asked to be the first to let him know that I want the public option becuase I have spent my life as a social worker trying to help people, many with out health insurance- and I have held people in my arms who have cancer and could not get health care, and I believe that the public option would give them the same health care I have, and that since they are my fellow citizens they deserve health care.  When I asked again if it was really true that he never knew anyone who wanted the public option, I suggested he meet with some poor people and they would tell him they want a public option.

    Where are their hearts?  
    How cold and self serving can you be? I should have said that the Senator has, no doubt, access to the best health care insurance in the World and probably pays nothing for it, so of course he doesn't know anyone who wants a change.

    God forgive them- I can't
