From my "Twitter" account...
If you get a chance, watch NJ Democrat Rob Andrews -- what a remarkable 90-second speech on the floor of the House.
Rep. Andrews spoke of a vote for health care as the nation's next step toward doing the right thing for all its people.
Then compare his remarks to the "hell, no" from the Minority Leader John Boehner.
The minority leader is supposed to be a forceful advocate; he certainly was tonight. The "hell no" should never have been uttered, however.
Here's the difference between being in the majority and in the minority -- you need not be as combative; compare Mrs. Pelosi to Mr. Boehner.
Set aside the feelings you have for POTUS and 111th Congress -- no one can say White House and Congress have not sat around and done nothing.
I must admit -- I would love to have been in Washington tonight.
It's only one man's opinion -- the votes tonight should be by roll call. The electronic ballot provides just enough duck-and-cover.
Make that 219-212.
From a former news colleague John McClelland -- 3/21/10 10:45 PM - America has just changed, and not for the better. This isn't about cost or coverage, it's about control.
To all who care enough about the political process to offer reasoned argument about health care, thank you. The country needs more like you.
