Is he a racist? Only a racist would resort to such arguments! Rangel only raises this racist card to stir up the racial issue. It's sensitive!

Let's fix the real issue behind the high cost of health care! Why is it so high? Yes, this is a free economy country and money makes money! Is this so bad? No, this is not the cause. The real cause is the ambulance chasers who sue on everything! That is driving up the cost of malpractice insurance and every doctor/nurse/hospital are covering their behinds so they don't get sued. If one controls this (yes, I want the government come into play here! not regulate my insurance needs), we will see sanity return! Mistakes happen! Yes, there are bad doctors just as there are bad apples in other sectors. Let's regulate how bad doctors are allowed to practice! Let's train our doctors better! Don't treat the symptom but solve the issue at the root of the problem! Can't people see that!?!?!

Why is it that when a non-black criticizes a black it racism. Why is it that when a black criticizes a black it tomism. Why is it that when a black criticizes anything non-black its OK. This is not a question of race, but rather a question of socialism/communism. Its time to take that race card and put it back in the deck because its been plyed to death and has no improt anymore.

Why is it ok to have Asian Clubs, African American Clubs, Hispanic Clubs in High School? What would happen if someone started a Caucasian Club? Would that be considered racist? That is the whole problem. As long as there are Clubs based on color we will ALWAYS have racism!
