I have elsewhere expressed my disappointment with the weakness of the bill that was eventually signed, but like many similarly disappointed supporters I thought it at least might be a step in the right direction. Now conservatives like Meehan are trying to destroy what little progress has been made in the movement toward genuine health care reform. We must remain constantly vigilant as the powers-that-be are bent on increasing the suffering of millions despite their rhetoric to the contrary. The smoke and mirrors that Meehan is employing run all through the Congress and in both political parties, so that we must closely and vigilantly watch their actions and pay far less attention to their dishonest and misleading words.
Below I my response and rejoinder to Rep. Meehan’s action.
