Nation is Skeptical About Healthcare Reform
We already know from last week's healthcare speech that Barack Obama's door is open to everyone provided that you agree with him. ("My door is always open. But know this: I will not waste time with those who have made the calculation that it's better politics to kill this [healthcare] plan than improve it.") I don't think many people will be motivated to stop by for a chat if they think that they might be tossed out on their ear. Threats against legislators and citizens--as opposed to, say, enemy nations--doesn't appear as if it is being well received. It's good to see that when a popular politician resorts to bullying, people are willing to stand up.
