Opposing Health Care Reform: If you see evil and say nothing against it, you become its victim.

Health care reforms are close to becoming law in America. There is no hope of a bipartisan bill.

President Obama‘s mind is torn right now between following his top military commander’s recommendations for more troops in Afghanistan or following some of his advisers who oppose adding more troops in Afghanistan.
