By Bob L. I take it as the Democrats are they will not pass a health care bill if the Republicans are involved. In other words, they are saying, you are going to take this program whether you want it or not because we have stock in it.
They are small time DICTATORS trying to get bigger with the help of some ones backers and thugs with a gun to the peoples head, take it or go to jail.
This is why they want to take away your guns so you can not PROTECT your self or Family.

WASHINGTON – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he will support allowing the government to sell insurance in competition with private industry if the White House and Democratic leaders push a health care bill with no Republican backing.
Many conservatives and some moderates oppose the so-called public option. It’s in the House bill, but not the Senate version. The White House is trying to reconcile the two bills before Thursday’s bipartisan summit.
Reid’s office said Friday he will work with the White House and Democratic lawmakers to try to craft a public option that can overcome obstacles such as a bill-killing GOP filibuster.
Some congressional Democrats say they doubt the White House would include a public option in the proposal it will unveil Monday.
