Wow. A couple of angry comments. I suspect anyone who is conservative, a tea party supporter or a republican won´t make Nethercutt detractors happy no matter what he says or does.
I applaud Mr. Nethercutt for supporting a stronger knowledge of civics. It makes no sense to me why that wouldn´t be a worthy cause by any standard. Oh, there is always something to criticize, but this shouldn´t be on the list because, if taken at face value, it is a worthy cause that will only enhance our society.
As for health care, I hear all the time how the republicans hindered the passing of health care. Well, that just isn´t the case, not one republican vote was needed to force this on the majority of Americans who didn´t want it (54 percent against and over 70 percent said start over. Those numbers haven´t changed.). Guess what? That´s exactly what happened. It was passed without a single republican supporting it. I thank them for standing tall against this fiasco. The American people are still against it. So, continuing to demonize the republicans even when it was the democrats who were the problem is just sour grapes.
But using the same line the president uses for health care, this is just a "starting point" on Mr. Nethercutt´s work to improve civics for all citizens.
