I am opposed to universtal health care and I am opposed to the Federal government running anything other than the minimum. State and local governments should run the majority of the things that the fed now runs.

Now I do not understand the Nuclear Option very well, but from what I do understand it was created to prevent budget freezes and was written to only pertain to budgetary items. To me that means it can not be used to create law. So are we again going down an unconstitutional road?
These tea parties and town hall meetings should tell people something. As much as the opposition likes to think they were put together by businessmen, I still stand by the fact that you can not get people to go out for something they don't believe in.

We will see what happens, but I fear this will bring out the radicals as well as the normal people who are just fed up.
