What is wrong with Washington D.C.?

Too Many Democrats in Washington

Great (rather long) Article. I like how it ends....

For over 25 years, John Goodman at the National Center for Policy Analysis has articulately advocated these and other reforms liberating patients to exercise maximum freedom and control over their own health care, doctors and hospitals to innovate to provide better and lower cost care, and employers to provide better deals to their workers at lower costs. Jim Frogue at Newt Gingrich's Center for Health Transformation, Merrill Matthews at the Council for Affordable Health Care, and Greg Scandlen at the Heartland Institute have similarly provided innovative, pathbreaking leadership on health policy that would truly help working people and the poor on health care.

But instead the American people suffer with too many Democrats in power who don't understand any of this, and won't listen to any new ideas from anybody. Harry Reid clearly has no idea what he is talking about on the issue. Nancy Pelosi as usual is lost in her own dream world. Florida Congressman Alan Grayson and Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse cannot even talk sensibly on the subject. Only the American people can fix this, and they can start by demanding resignations from those who have not been honest with them. This includes those who now plan to vote against the bill after voting for it, claiming they were against it all along.
I wish more of the media would cover the realistic options to this plan. I believe if more people knew there were REAL options available they would be storming D.C.! It is now likely too late....
