House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says anyone using harsh rhetoric to raise fears about health care reform should apologize and get on with writing policy, but said there's no reason to single out a Florida Democrat who said Republicans want sick Americans to "die quickly."

It's morally wrong to leave 100 million Americans un or underinsured, 1 illness away from financial ruin. And it's wrong to burden small business with the outrageous insurance costs also -- found a cool site; Balkingpoints ; incredible satellite view of earth

Max Baucus is determined to set up a sweetheart deal for his insurance industry contributors. If the free-market is always best for everything, what fear do they have of competing with a supposedly inefficient federal insurance option? What happened to the "market-based" system that were supposed to solve this mess 15 years ago?

You have to ask Why Hairy Rod is given an exemption to NOT PAY Medicare for entire state of NV for a few years while 3-4 other states are forced to pick up their tab?

The fix is in.

Rebublicans were the first to suggest Democrats were indifferent to death, when they spread their slimy "death panel" lies. Grayson was not only justified, but unlike the Republicans, he was telling the truth. We could use more Democrats like him.

If you read the story, you will see the N. P. only condemned harsh rhetoric against health care, not attacks against the other party. Do the Republicans have a health care plan? Yes, but they are not the party in power. And when they propose amendments they are shot down. Therefore Grayson's comments were just hateful rhetoric provided for those that don't know the real story, and their numbers are declining daily.

It's shameful to think that hundreds of thousands of Americans have given their lives defending freedom so people like you can exist.

You are a cancer.

Would you be kind enough to provide a brief description of the Republican health care "plan"?

Now that you've left no doubt that you are an imbecile, you are free to return to your anal affair with a flagpole.

Sez who?

Libs have no right to impose their morality on others.

I think it's wrong for government to take money from one person and give it to someone else.

Wouldn't it be great if ebola ate Pelosi as she was speaking on TV and all that was left was her plastic face?

I think that would be nifty keen.

They actively support abortion and yes, the health bill does have the ability to support rationing, the bill IS designed to save money. Various people in the Obama administration hold beliefs that government should control all aspects of life.

She's the typical liberal, can't own up to a wrong unless they use the "there's enough blame to go around" line.

I guess you were either drunk or whacked out on diet pills when John McCain made his proposals. Same when the Republicans proposed amendments such as prohibiting government employees interfering with the way you Dr treats patients and the Dems voted it down.

What an extremely intelligent remark! This must be why the conservative/Republican party is failing so badly.

Name those people, if you don't mind, along with your evidence.
