19. The baby step is more folks covered -
Thu Jun 28, 2012, 08:27 PM

that helps many children and especially folks with pre-existing conditions right now.

Of course it is not the plan I'd like to see. If you think we can get universal health care without more people in the streets I'd love to know how. Right now we have a bourgie "Occupy" movement that is sputtering and an election in which the candidate on the opposing side would be all too willing to push women in this country back 100 years. I don't think you want to see that happen and I sure don't either.

I find it incredibly short-sighted, greedy, and disgusting that folks in this country don't demand universal health care - but I am not willing to shoot down this president only to get one that is 100 times worse.
