A healthcare policy analyst says the healthcare legislation being promoted by liberals in Congress is dangerous even without a so-called "public option." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) has counted votes in the House and reportedly does not have enough to pass a "robust public option," however her office is denying that report. Obama administration officials believe they will be able to pass a compromise form of government-run healthcare by rounding up enough liberals and moderates to support a public option "trigger." The plan would allow a government plan to kick in if private insurers do not expand coverage fast enough.

Greg D'Angelo is a policy analyst at The Heritage Foundation's Center for Health Policy Studies. He says Pelosi does not have enough votes because her proposal is out of touch with what Americans want in a health reform plan.
If the blue dog Democrats give in on this, the American taxpayer is surely in trouble. Naturally the radicals, the communist oriented faction of our Congress will do everything they can to deceive other members of Congress who oppose the radical bill to go along with it ... but this is where it's critical for those members of Congress who oppose the measure to stick to their guns, so to speak...and not give in. Even more critical is for the American people who are concerned, that sector of America that pays taxes to continue writing their Senators and Representatives telling them to not support the bill ... because if they go against our wishes, the American peoples wishes, there will be dire consequences.
So, who would you rather there be more and severe consequences ... you, the American people ... or Congress, who won't opt for the same?
Take heed, America ... this is where the future of this great country rests ... on this single, and most critical decision, alone.
