thanks for posting this~~I like that he doesn't belittle his fox news questioners but instead tries to reason with them. I doubt if they will listen much but he tries!

Hey the only way we see this stuff is if WE find it and take it viral
MSM will not play this, looks like we have a gem in SENATOR Franken, makes O'Riley (god he is a discrace) puke!!!

Al is the voice of reason, but to be honest, he was dealing with a lot more reasonable audience than others we've seen.

He has a very reassuring way of talking through the actual issues rather than get caught up in the normal teabagger nonsense.

I found myself listening hard and learning things. For instance, I had no idea minnesota has no for-profit health insurance.

Other senators and reps could learn a thing or two from Al. Good to have him in there fighting!

You need to listen to it again.. at about 1:30 when he is talking about the Switzerland Model.. he is talking Government regulation of Insurance.. Strong regulation with NO PUBLIC OPTION. That's what he says.. That's what he is talking about and what he says could be the best thing for us here.. everyone is overlooking that.. but that's what he says...
