"'Politics have no place in health care,' [Bloomberg] said in a statement. 'Breast cancer screening saves lives and hundreds of thousands of women rely on Planned Parenthood for access to care. We should be helping women access that care, not placing barriers in their way.'"

This is just so…right.  I had a moment during the GOP debates the other day when they were all pissing and moaning about “Obamacare” (but offering up no credible alternatives) when I thought, what a beautiful revelation it would be if a Republican stood up and said something akin to the above.  If someone got up and said, “You know what it’s not perfect, but it’s real and it will provide services for millions of Americans.  It will make us healthier and help peoples’ budgets and this is important.”  Amen, Mayor Bloomberg.
