Who benefits from the status quo?  Who benefits from a Health-Care Reform that covers everyone?  Senators now say that 80 Senatorrs should support legislation to assure that this Reform has national support.  Why didn't those same Senators demand that 80 Senators support the pre-emptive bombig of Iraq to assure  national support?    So many of those who do not support Health-Care Reform consider themselves Pro-Life.  So many of those who supported the pre-emptive bombing of Iraq consider themselves Pro-Life.  Some Pro-Life issues are more important than others.  Fear, which gives birth to self-interests, is still the great motivator.  And Jesus sid "Fear is useless."
