Medical Malpractice and Republican Lies

Dick Durban sets Republicans straight on medical malpractice. He then asks those present if Federal health insurance and benefits are good enough for them, why aren't they good enough for the rest of the country?

I can answer that. If everyone was given the health insurance our congressional reps have.....someone, somewhere in the USA would be getting a benefit they don't deserve.

The reason why Democrats are having trouble passing a decent healthcare plan is because the GOP has mastered the arts of communicating and manipulating middle America as illustrated by Geoffrey Nunberg in his book Talking Right,
"In poll after poll, a majority of middle class voters acknowledge that the Democrats would do a better job that affect their daily lives, from Social Security and taxes to the environment and education. But… a significant number of voters… make their choices on the basis of patriotic appeals and cultural issues,
only to be rewarded with policies that favor the rich and powerful at their own expense" (8).

acutally, the book is called Talking Right: How conservatives turned liberalism into a tax-raising, latte drinking, sushi-eating, volvo-driving, New York Times reading, body-piercing, Hollywood-loving, left wing freak show. (I highly recommend it!
