I am sure the comfort of using something so sleek and lightweight is good - (used a friend's). Call me old fashioned if you will, but I prefer good old paper! After a long day of staring at LCD and LED screens on computers or TV, reading a book is a relief from the glare and the molecular energy discharge from the LCD. I am not trying to put down technology here. Just that there are times when I like the simplicity of yesteryears.
While I agree that a shorter bill can be drafted, I would like to challenge the writer why does he refer to the democrats as socialists. The republicans have been in charge of congress for the past 12 years (1994-2006) yet during that same time they never enacted the "common sense" reform that they are touting. They enacted the Medicare prescription drug benefit (an unfunded mandate) yet they complain when democrats try to do something that is supposedly funded. During the 12 years of republican rule, they did not do anything of what they prescribe right now and the ranks of the uninsured grew during that period. Why not allow the democrats the chance to do what they believe is right. If the experiment fails, then republicans will be reelected with a majority and then they cna undo what the democrats have done and reenact their version of health reform.
