Health care reform talks too secret?

This week, Senate Democratic leaders are expected to be back behind closed doors, putting together a compromise bill on health care reform.

That process has raised a key question: Why is the debate over the public option not open to the public?

    I have never seen anything handled so poorly and in opposition with the majority of the American people. This is a travesty. Redistributing wealth is socialism. I am repulsed by this administration.

    I wasn't sure where to post this but thought everyone should know.

    My daughter is 19 years old and healthy. She is in shape and a figure skater. Obviously with serious skting, knee problems can occur. She was treated for tendanitis and spent 8 weeks in physical therapy and released. Here it is 2 years later, she went to get insurance and was turned down by Geisinger supposedly because she had an "ongoing knee condition." This is where we the common middle class citizen need help. The insurance companies need to have laws to follow. It should be illegal to turn down people who need insurance. I was also thinking that if there was a list of companies who messed with peoples health, we could boycott them and put them out of business.

    Just a thought. Thanks for listening!
