Harkin has “Visions” of Americans IN SUPPORT of Obama’s Healthcare Plan: He Needs to Check His Meds.


Harkin: `Silent majority' back health care reform – Boston.com:

“INDIANOLA, Iowa—Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin predicts Congress will approve a health care reform bill this fall that includes a public option, saying a ‘silent majority’ of Americans favor such an overhaul.

Speaking with reporters Sunday at a Democratic fundraiser, Harkin promised passage of ‘a bill before we go home for Christmas.’ He says the measure will include a government insurance option.

Harkin’s views have grown in importance since he was named chairman of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee after the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy.

Harkin says there is little political risk in backing health care reform and that the real danger is opposing changes.

He contends ‘there is a silent majority all over America that understands we need health care reform and we need it now.’”

Stringing and Strowing says:

There is a vocal majority all over America that understands we need health care reform and we need it now. This majority, however, does not believe a public option, tantamount to goverment takeover of the health care industry, is part of the solution. This bill is about power, not health care, and is a government attempt to take over 17% of our economy while leaving Americans voiceless when it comes to their health care choices. Furthermore, this government plan intends to ration health care of our elderly, our disabled, and our sickest, mean while paving the road to health care for illegals. Not if we can help it Mr. Harkin. Not if we can help it.
