Where is the real courage among the Republicans in the House and Senate?

Like many that have followed the efforts by the Democrats on ’health care reform’, I’m impressed with the leader of the party. Even though it has been a long drawn out process with pitfalls, President Obama never wavered. Because of misinformation, I know personally that some people are under the impression that health insurance companies will be the winners if ‘health care reform’ is passed. Also, there are those that are under the impression that their tax dollars will go to those with less means. Think of a football and a goal with a health insurer having the power to move the goal when the football is thrown, think of a client trying to throw a football at a moving goal , and, a clear picture will surface why ‘health care reform’ is desperately needed. For the life of me, I can’t understand why leaders in the other party are dead set on sabotaging the gains acquired on ‘health care reform’ by the Democrats. However, it is crystal clear to me that their united request that the present form of the bill be sacked and started over is simply a political wish and ploy to destroy the cause. It is sad that not one Republican in the Senate and the House has the courage to take a stand against a political wind that’s not in the best interest of the people’s business. In my opinion, starting with Scott Brown in the Senate, a copy of ‘Profile and Courage’ by John F. Kennedy, should be sent to every Republican in the Senate and House.
