Back to the basics (or Everything I learned about effective government, I learned in first grade)

When one sees how utterly inept our government has become, one would ascertain that even a first-grader could manage issues more efficiently.

With House Speaker Nancy Pelosi exploring a "Deem and Pass" strategy to push through wildly unpopular health care legislation, it appears the third most powerful politician in the country has lost all sense of proper legislative procedure. Sometimes we just need to take a step back and get back to the basics.

As such, I'd like to point Madame Speaker to something I first learned as a student at a Highwood Hills Elementary School.

As citizens, we certainly haven't forgotten our right and responsibility to make sure our Congressional representatives hear our voices.

To ensure that your House member and the 58 Democrats on the fence know how you feel about the health care abomination, please check out this link. Time is definitely of the essence!!

Right on, Brad! This is no longer about health care, it is about democratic process. It's incredible that Dems still hold the cards, yet they have to resort to manipulating the system. (And, I suspect, intimidating dissenters they can't buy.)

School House Rock rocks!!!

Bill was my favorite.

This was never about people getting better health care in the first place; just DC politics as usual.

Obama is bringing ugly politics to a new level.

You can get the politician out of Chicago, but you can't get the dirty corruption out of the Chicago politician.
