When Big Oil wants a trillion dollar war in Iraq, and Wall St. wants tens of trillions in bailouts, Congress acts instantly. When they tell us they can't afford healthcare for all, they are saying they don't work for all, just the very, very wealthy.

Thats why we need to www.Change-congress.org

Public funding of public elections.

The bill as it exist allows people to opt into public funding where they cannot accept big contributions but have small contributions doubled or tripled along with a stipend. This allows candidates to spend time with their constituents, and after election legislating, instead of spending most the money with the most wealthy of donors.

I love how republicans bemoan the fear that people will die on waiting lists because of limited resources, but they are perfectly fine if people die because they can't afford costly operations or procedures. How many times have you donated to "so-and-so needs this lifesaving surgery and we are raising money."
Or they die because they're denied coverage because their insurance company says the treatment is "experimental" or whatever other excuse they use to say "if we paid for this it would cut into the profits we're using to pay off politicians and run billion dollar ad campaigns to kill health reform."
There is a good article, in Newsweek I believe, about how Americans can react quickly in a crisis, but are paralyzed by the slow moving and nebulous type of problem posed by health care reform. I'll dig up the link later, if anyone wants to see it.
