"The Leverage has switched to the Consumer."

Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi:
The Health Insurance Industry, is the biggest Opponent, the biggest Opponent of this legislation passing, AND with a Public Option in it. Because they know the glory days are over for them --

The Leverage has switched to the Consumer.

Congress and the President will remove the Insurance Industry from coming between the Patient and his or her Doctor.

From your mouth to God's ear, Nancy.

Paul, I want to believe, but I can't. Not yet. Something will happen to make the Congress critters turn yellow.

I share your cynicism, Mimi (shall we make ourselves feel better and say "realism"?). I guess that is why I wanted it to get to God's ear before another word was uttered on Capitol Hill.

Pelosi is speaking with a firm tone but there's many a slip twixt the cup and the lip.
