Late last night it was reported that Senate Democrats are pushing the Obama Administration to find a quick fix to the problem plaguing millions of Americans, that is – they are losing their health insurance policies as a result of the new healthcare law. Ironically the same people who have been criticizing Republican efforts to make ANY changes to this law are the ones now trying to save their own behinds by addressing just one of the many problems with it.
Sen. Dianne Feinsten and Sen. Mary Landrieu are the two Democrats leading the effort to make a change to the law and they want to do it within a 72 hour time frame.

I guess we should be calling them terrorists now?
The Democrats clearly do not have the best interests of the American people in mind. They are thinking politically and politically only. If they were truly concerned with how this law has, does and will continue to hurt Americans, they would have at least discussed the option of making changes to it when Republicans were raising questions and concerns about it.
