Let's get Congress working again! Unclog the pipeline. Break through the deadlock! Bring this thing to a vote. It's only fair. It's the realization of Democracy. Don't hide in the corner - you have to give us your choice, on behalf of the Americans you represent. Come off the fence and choose.
So, what will it be? Do you want to cover medical expenses for 40 million Americans and give half a trillion dollars to the corrupt insurance companies or don't you? Yea or nay?
What's that you say, Dennis? You want to cover medical expenses for 40 million Americans but you don't want to give half a trillion dollars to the corrupt insurance companies?
But that's not what's on the table, Dennis. This is democracy. Everyone has had their say in putting this bill together. Don't take us back to square one. We're going to fight the war with the army we've got.
So, what will it be yea or nay?
Yes, I heard you, Dennis. But now, isn't that a self-centered thing to ask? I mean, what about all those people who want to give half a trillion dollars to the corrupt insurance companies but don't want to cover medical expenses for 40 million Americans? What if they were insisting on the same selfish point of view that you're taking right now?
No we won't separate this into two votes. It's up or down. It's the fair way. Fair to me. Fair to you. Fair to US Healthcare and Amerigroup and Goldman Sachs. They're citizens, too, don't you know? Even Clarence says so.
So what will it be - Up or down?
