    I liked when he said we have “Wall Street Run Health Care”

    I wondered while listening to Mr. Potter how can a grassroots movement compete with a huge anti health care reform P. R. campaign?

    He answered my question, by talking to one person at a time about health care reform. By calling, writing and e-mailing my elected officials over and over again. By writing letters to the editors. By attending rallies.

    Although Mr. Potter did not say the words he did acknowledge in a very diplomatic way that there is a Right-Wing-Conspiracy at work to deny the American people the health care option we need.

    Between the Wall Street masters and its kotowing insurance companies the American people are being takin’ for the proverbial ride.

    So, what do we do? Like Alex said, we continue to do the right thing. Contact our elected officials over and over again to remind them of what we, their constituents want and in so many words remind them that they are indeed “elected officials.”
