    I’m sorry that I ignored an earlier post. No I personaly would have no use for any of your stem-cells, but I believe there might be some value in serious scientists studying them.

    I presumed to sumerise where we are at from the left. Might help if someone could do same from the right. It may prove to be the start of another 2 mile blog. I am speaking of the Thursday blog.

    On the Repuke you had today was just using the rhetoric. “Ambush”, “Bush’s Legacy” HAH! “Verified Voting” he said, “congress jumped in”. I wonder if his answer was just using PR with his answer. “I will work with you on fighting for this issue,” he said. Yeah, sure!
    Thanks again,
    Gal from Cal

    Dangit, Mark! I knew I didn’t phrase my question right! Thanks for reading it on the air, and I know I called too late. I was trying to ask what the administration is doing to lower health care costs on the average person that’s NOT on Medicare. You and me, you know? As far as I can tell, the sum of all they’ve done to help us is, oh, nothing.
    Now the guest did allude to the democratic solution of price control and something else (I can’t remember, was it single payer system?). I’m not really sure WHAT the solution is. I am in favor of a single payer system. I do know that the pharmaceutical companies put an AWFUL lot of money into advertising, which just doesn’t seem right to me. Maybe these two things are enough to control the costs. I do feel that we are in a crisis situation and the costs need to come down.
