    I think the D News buried the lede on this one. The forum was hosted by the Sutherland Institute. Think that might have had anything to do with the sentiment from attendees?

    uncannygunman, Those of whom you speak would be in the minority.

    what about the anti-health care comments at the dem sponsored meetings, aka town hall meetings held by Specter and other dems? These are true grass-roots reactions to bad policy, not like the bussed in union member pro-BO health-care rallies the dems are trying to stage now

    Seems to me you might be able to find some folks in SLC who support health care reform if you looked beyond the comments made at Republican-sponsored anti-health care meetings. Just a thought.

    I saw an interview with BO where he compared the troubles he is having getrting Obamacare passed to the troubles FDR had getting social security passed and JFK and LBJ had getting medicare passed. Yes, let's compare SS and medicare to Obamacare - the former two are bankrupt (or will be soon) and Obamacare will bankrupt us.

    The good people of Utah have hit the nail on the head. This isn't about Healthcare, it's about power and control, and about "tansforming" America. They would have gladly passed this bill before the break if they could have, without even reading it or comprehending it and its implications for all Americans. Why? Because its not about Healthcare; its about a vehicle to gain power and control and to advance an agenda that is as un-American as you can imagine. That's why the details do not matter to them, they want the power and control, and the details are incidental to Obama. Who believes that Obama wouldn't sign anything that comes across his desk, as long as a bill gets passed? Has anyone seen him review the bill to make sure the plan is right for Americans?-No, but why not? Why hasn't he? The answer is because it'snot about Healthcare to Obama, it's power and control that he wants.

    They say it is happening in Utah where it should should have happened years ago and it hasn't. The State lawmakers have dropped the ball AGAIN - if they had proved that worked years ago it could have set a chain reaction other states. They didn't. They failed. AGAIN. And so now the Federal government is coming to clean up their mess. Again.
