Be sure and read my Western Tribune column, which follows. Me? A communist?
Congratulations to both Claire Mitchell and Lawrence McAdory who were the top vote getters in yesterdays special election. The runoff will be November 10. Claire Mitchell will win.
Those who are trying to prevent health care reform must be feeling pretty chipper this morning after the Senate Finance committee rejected the public option yesterday. But it's not over. Readers like Becki who would rather see a gay person with AIDS die without treatment than have government run health care assisting him, think that most Americans agree with them, but they don't. Sixty five percent of Americans want a public option.
So Michael Moore said it right. He can count on me to join him. This is at 10:50 in the video. But watch it all.
To the Democrats in congress, who don't quite get it, I want to offer a personal pledge. I, and a lot of other people, have every intention of removing you from congress in the next election if you stand in the way of health care legislation that the people want. That is not a hollow or idle threat. We will come to your districts and we will work against you, first in the primary and if we have to in the general election. You don't think so? You think we're just gonna go along with you because you are democrats? You should think again. This is the number one domestic issue on people's minds right now.
