"It seems that free-floating fear of change is driving opposition to health reform. What people should fear is the consequences of doing nothing. Over 20,000 people die each year for lack of health insurance, and the number is climbing.
"Opponents to reform are preying on deep-seated anxieties of the American people for personal and political gain. They have people panicked over distorted details and straw men. We need to ignore them, pay heed to our 'better angels.' If we fail to act in this moment, the next life lost to our cruelly dysfunctional health care system could well be your own."
It's been amazing to me the fear people are having and the distortion of that fear. Yet what they don't figure out is they are paying now for the uninsured.
Many of those opponents are the insurance companies that have milked us, denied coverage when needed, and dropped many in their greatest time of need, after paying for years. If nothing else I would love to see healthcare reform to make them rethink their dishonest practices.
