    Frankie .. Americans still need health care reform. The system forced upon America is discriminatory and biased. Any system that requires one person to pay more than another for the same service is unfair and in this case particularly – racist.

    I have two questions that I have been asking but no one has answered as of yet....

    1) Why are Americans against a health care system that is fair and equal for all citizens?

    2) If this health care reform is so good for the country why are the politicians that voted for it – exempt from it?

    I challenge CNN to find an "expert" to answer these questions here or on air for all to see.

    Not saying Ms. Saberi had a vacation while in prison, but her treatment – cut off from friends and family, solitary confinement and constant interrogation and suggestions she might never taste freedom again- doesn't seem out of line with standard American practice at Gitmo and elsewhere. At least she wasn't waterboarded.

    I hope Kiran doesn't continue to fawn all over her – particularly when it comes to the allegation that she had confidential government papers relating to the Iraq war with her, apparently embezzled while working as a translator for a government body..

    How about a wee bit of scepticism or a follo-up, drill down question or two ? Not the CNN way ?

    Yesterday on CNN I saw the image at a Tea Party of somebody holding up a horrible sign that said "Bury Obamacare with Kennedy." A big champion of the Tea Party is a woman who walked away from her job as Governor to have this career making vicious inaccurate remarks. The Tea Party is not simply a party of people defending the Constitution. It defies reason that the Constitution should mean it is OK for 30-plus million Americans not to have health care except going to an emergency room and then being unable to afford prescriptions or tests prescribed there. I am also tired of the fact that they have joined the Republicans in Congress in loudly proclaiming that "Americans" hate and fear Health Care Reform. I am a 60-year-old American woman who is grateful that we have Health Care reform, who is not irrationally afraid of President Obama, and who thinks human beings should basically be polite and honest with each other.

    Political affiliation with either party is bad – splinter groups off of them is even worst. Neither party is any better than the other.
