So good. I had read it before. but watching him propogate the answer in his mind then present it as a great stand-up would is great.

I'm not a fan of the healthcare plan (at least what I've seen of it thus far) or Congressman Frank, but the reaction here is completely justified IMO. Politics unfortunately attracts nutjobs on all sides as well as folks who allow their passions to cloud their common sense.

Finally we have a Democrat with the balls to respond to these people with the contempt and ridicule they deserve. Bravo, Barney!
I happen to favor Obama's plan, but I would favor it more if it were a single-payer plan (basically, Medicare for everyone). I think the "public option" is a good compromise, though. The private insurance companies have had many years to figure out how to create a system that is equitable for everyone, and they have not done that. Instead they have perfected a system that maximizes their profits by excluding people that may be more likely to get sick, and by other strategies. People are excluded both directly and/or by making the cost prohibitive. I am a purist about the concept of insurance - we all share the risks and benefits. it's really not all that difficult.

I have had and will continue to have a wicked huge crush on "The Frank".
God Bless his chubby goodness :)

According to Hot Air this lady is one of the Lyndon LaRouche nutjobs:
Swell. Aren't they busy enough keeping Her Majesty the Queen honest from her drug-peddlin' ways?
