How the Democrats in Congress Can Win Back the American People

Just in case the Democrats in Congress are not aware: Americans are not happy that you are trying to cram a health care reform bill down our throats. Most Democrats do seem to be aware of the fact that the health care reform bill is very unpopular. They know that they are risking losing in the polls in November if they force their bill through Congress using an unpopular loophole.

However, just because the bill in it's entirety is unpopular, does not mean that the individual laws and regulations within the bill are unpopular. In fact many of the individual proposals in the bill are welcomed by the American public such as the one regarding pre existing conditions.

If Congress wants to win back the hearts and minds of the America public, all they need to do is pass the individual laws that the American people want. They should scrap the health care reform bill that is currently on the table and the one that Obama is proposing.

Congress can then write a new proposal that is simply based on all of the laws and regulations that the American people want to see in health care reform. This slimmed down version will be quite short and very palatable to the American people.

Congress would once again have the support of the American people which would make it very easy for them to pass the bill.

That being said, of course, they will not do it. Congress does not do what is right or what the American people want.

I predict that Congress will either pass Obama's new health care reform bill and anger so many Americans that they will lose many congressional seats in November OR they will pass nothing at all.

The Democrats in Congress simply do not seem to know how to do their job.
