As the health care debate grinds forward, the polls show that the right is winning the debate with regard to Obama's health care reform legislation. However, I feel we need to be doing more in the debate. At the end of this debate, if our only accomplishment is that we have stopped poor legislation from passing, we will only have won a battle not the war.
The polls show that there is a lot of room for convincing as well. We need to do more than show why Obama's plan is a bad idea, we need to convince people that this type of legislation is not appropriate for America so that we are not fighting the same legislation ten years later. I plan to do my part.
I just received word from "the Law," author of The L Comment, that he has accepted an offer to hold a debate on health care between our blogs. The Law is a good friend of mine, a true credit to the progressive movement, an outstanding author and model blogger. It will be a traditional debate with opening remarks, rebuttals and conclusions. We will be posting the debate all next week starting Tuesday and concluding on The Law's new radio program on Sunday.
Please stop by, participate, send questions and make points. Remember that we are all Americans and be respectful of everyone's views (no matter how wrong they may be...sorry tL, couldn't help myself ;). The debate is on!
