I absolutely love that bill and I also hope Dr and Rep Flemming will join with Tn Congressman Phil Roe in meeting with Pres Obama to go over the health care bill line by line which is what the President in his own words agreed to do. I want to know if he,s a man of his word.This would be way more important than a beer summit. How about a bill reading summit.

High time Congress step down from Mt Olympus. ired of paying for their benefits, their incredible retirements, their free parking at station s and airports, their junkets abroad, their cafeteria that has to stay opne full staffed until they all go home, their terrific health care system that the taxpaer pays 69% of. Thier limousines and drivers, their doctors on 24 hour call.

What's good for the goose is good for the gander. If we're to share the wealth, we should also share the insurance. You know, if the government cut out waste, we would have a balanced budget!
