With all the noise and screaming, and the 33 (or is it 34, or maybe 40 by now?) votes by Republicans in Congress to repeal the Patient Protection Act, and the irresponsibly dismal media coverage of this critical issue to all of us; you, a member of the People of the United States of America, have been prevented from learning the truth about how the Patient Protection Act will actually benefit not only you, but your state and everyone else in it, as well.

Bill Frist is not only the former majority leader in the Senate during George W. Bush's presidency, he also has his share of bona fides in understanding how the U.S. health care system operates. Frist is a Harvard-graduated cardio-thoracic surgeon, having specialized in health care policy at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. He has practiced medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, Southampton General Hospital, Stanford University School of Medicine, and the Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he founded the Vanderbilt Transplant Center.

And he wrote an impassioned op-ed, imploring us to actively work to support the implementation of the exchanges in every state.

We bring you both the truth about these exchanges as explained by Dr. Frist, and the absurd letter that 73 Republicans in Congress sent to the National Governors Association that is made up entirely of lies about what the exchanges are, how they'll work, and what they mean for health care administration across the country. ...

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.
