Here's the Deal, Dems...

As you pass the hours on Capitol Hill positioning yourselves to please all of the people all of the time - so you can keep your high-paying, insurance-provided jobs... There are real people at the bottom of the Hill - where what's rolling down collects -losing their jobs for reasons that have nothing to do with pleasing anyone. Businesses here in real-time-America are not making money, in case you hadn't heard. There's downsizing, belt tightening, and internal restructuring all over the place. This week, a corporate survival redesign put a dozen close friends of mine on the unemployment line. And just so you know, my conservative Democrat health care hold outs - these are hard working people. They are people who give all they've got to give to whatever they do. They are people who have worked this way their entire lives to make sure they, and their families, always pay their own way. A few of them are near retirement age and find themselves dusting off the resume. They're hoping they don't get sick. It appears you are fiddling your way through politics while Rome is burning. We need a dependable health care system. We need it now. None of us expect Congress to create high paying jobs for every unemployed person in America. We know the economy will have to run it's course in the ditch before jobs with good wages return. But for the love of Abraham Lincoln, could you find your way clear to consider helping us stay insured? Make your deals. Make them quickly. We are losing heart tissue as we stand by and watch. We will need EKGs and MRIs and lots of expensive prescription drugs to stay steady if you do not get this bill moving. This is OUR president's top domestic priority. It's high time to make it yours. Peace.

What can I say but Thank You, your support and elegant words mean everything.

In case anyone is wondering - I believe I am one of those friends that just lost a job.

They (the company) said they promote conscious capitalizm - perhaps not so much anymore...
