Flash News! McNerney Votes to support Obama-Care State, National, International, posted by Rick Pshaw, a resident of the Danville neighborhood, on Sep 13, 2010 at 4:39 pm
Well, this posting really isn't flash news since it's been over a week since my original posting that pointed out McNerney's vote supporting Obama-care. What's rather curious is that none of the McNerney-Reid-Pelosi apologists saw fit to comment on that posting.
What's wrong with the folks in the local left? Don't you want McNerney to campaign for re-election as an ardent supporter of pseudo-socialized medicine?
Or would you rather this issue just got buried in the electronic muck?

Redundancy is an amazing tool without result in exchanges on this forum. We can have a personal outrage exposed with only superficial, emotional response as personal attacks and defamation.
But it would be interesting to review the three congress members in our Iron Horse corridor and gain your readers comments on the issues of healthcare and how it is provided in USAmerica. Taking that issue to its source, your readers could explain their expectations for insurance coverage and the costs of such coverage.
Exactly what are the issues?
Thus, when the exchange is done, we will know where our congress members and your readers differ and what are the issues for resolve.

Why waste any time responding to Rickshaw, seriously. That fact that he would have to ask again for comments should tell him something as to the salience of his remarks, particularly on something as complex as healhcare reform. Ask anyone in the business (like me) and they will tell you reform was WAY overdue. The staggering fines on Pacificare levied last week are a prime example, or how about the Anthem 45% increases imposed last Spring until the public outcry, and then they admitted an "actuarial error" in determining their shocking increases....Rick is a typical idealogue. I see his folks' sign on 680 everyday....

JRM misses the point entirely. I wasn't asking for comments - I was pointing out that there WERE NO comments to my previous post.
The other point in my posting was conjecture on whether or not McNerney would make his vote in support of Obama-care a centerpiece of his campaign. According to JRM, if "reform was way overdue" then McNerney should be shouting from the rooftops about his vote.
Somehow I don't think we will see such rooftop rage as part of his election effort...

i would love to get in front of jerry and ask how does he square his vote on health care, when this package that creates vast amounts of new bureaucracy was opposed by the majority of the american people and had to have various sweeteners and incentives to individual states (i don't think jerry or nancy garnered any of those for california) just to pass in the senate?
how does jerry square his pose as a fiscal moderate with spending a trillion dollars over 10 years to get health care for 6 1/2 years? the numbers don't add up for a true fiscal moderate
but jerry doesn't want to answer these questions, that is why there are no debates planned between now and the election -- that is why jerrys 'new' campaign website removed the 'events' section from the previous website, there are no events -- except fundraisers at the homes of rich liberals, like the one last week with howard "the screamer" dean in Palo Alto

Pres Obama and Jerry McNerney delivered on Health Care Reform just like they had promised in the last election. A large majority voted them into office to do just that for us all. Jerry made the right vote for us in Danville and the right vote for America. We are a great country and can do better for our sick and poor people. The reforms are already helping. GOPers were poor losers in the election and when they were not able to defeat Obama made a huge effort to defeat Health Care Reform as a way to defeat Obama. The problem for us all is with this type of action the GOPers are actually trying to defeat programs we need for America. They are always working against the public interest in trying to defeat Obama. Obama got us out of the Great Bush/GOP Recession without the help of a single GOPer. The real issue with Congress is that we have too many GOPers whose only plan is to say no and it is hurting us all.
