On health vote, GOP shows its true colors

March 22, 2010

Thank you Mr. President, thank you Speaker Pelosi, and thanks to the 219 brave leaders who voted yes to the health care reform bill.

And thank you, Republican Party, for showing us your true nature. Not one of you voted for this basic start to our future health. Instead, you fanned the fires of fear, hatred and confusion in your followers, hoping to advance your selfish interests, not theirs. You are responsible for the American citizen that spit on one of our leaders. You have caused a human stampede with your negative speeches that have added nothing but confusion and anger to the debate.

Really, thank you Republicans, your reputation as public servants has diminished to a public nuisance. I am eagerly awaiting your replacement by real Americans.

John Holter, Baltimore
