Why the rage? What's the deal? I can only tell you my perspective.
I don't think anyone questions the need for a change in healthcare in the US. But less than half of us believe the plan coming out of Washington will work. It's long on government and short on specifics. That allows the mind to fill in the details. Then send out a bunch of elected representatives who are supposed to know what's going on, but don't. Now the White House is sending out Union thugs to beat up guys in wheelchairs. None of this is conducive to convincing a bunch of people who already skeptical of Big Government. The frustration is no surprise.
My advice to the President - take it or leave it; it's free:
Go on TV. Prime Time. Tell Congress to back up. Tell Congress that maybe there should be more deliberation. The people are concerned and want more scrutiny. Blah, blah, blah.
Do it, Mr. President.
