Where’s the shame?

The Republicans in Congress, even as they threaten to hold a read-a-thon to slow progress on the health care insurance reform bill, have accused Democrats of having bad manners .

Honestly. They’re trying to kill a bill that will help hundreds of thousands of Americans who, through no fault of their own, can’t afford and thus don’t have health insurance. These people — our friends and neighbors, brothers and sisters, parents and grandparents —  can’t get even basic care, let alone catastrophic care in the case of a severe illness or accident.

Bad manners?? Who in the hell do the Republicans think they’re kidding? They should be ashamed.
