A famous American once said: "I agree with you, I want to do it, now make me do it!"

A majority of the American People want real Healthcare Reform.

+ The Medical Doctors and Nurses want it.
+ The Unions want it.
+ All relevant progressive organisations want it.

+ A majority in the House of Representatives, including Speaker Pelosi, wants it.
+ A strong majority of the Democratic Members in the Senate wants it.
+ The current President of the United States wants it.

But there are still some roadblocks that have to be overcome:
-Big Pharma and the Insurance Industry.
-The Republican Naysayers in Congress, especially in the Senate.
-And some turncoat Democrats in Congress (and maybe Rahm Emmanuel), too.

But in a time where Democrats have their biggest majorities in Congress in many decades, it is certainly not the time to quit.

More than 6 decades ago a former President of the United States said to some reformers: "I agree with you, I want to do it, now make me do it!"

More than 6 years ago a Former Governor, Doctor and Fighter for Democracy and the heart and soul of the Democratic Party said to his supporters: "The power to change this country rests in your hands, not mine."

President Obama in his SOTU adress made it clear that he wants to achieve several meaningful reforms - from Economy to Healthcare - this year.

He wants to do it. But he can't do it without the help of hundreds of thousands of his supporters, of millions of ordinary Americans. He can't do it alone.

Now is the time that all Americans of good faith MAKE HIM DO IT.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
