You are quite right to pursue an aggressive strategy to persuade people of the need for the reform of Medicare. Here in England, we have a situation which parallels your own. However, Prime Minister David Cameron, faced with exactly the sort of scaremongering that you have experienced, has declared that he will "pause" the legislation for a "listening exercise" -- that is, he has taken legislation which had already been submitted to Parliament and was being processed toward final approval by the legislature, and put it on the shelf while public hearings and consultations are conducted. Of course it makes him look as though he has no confidence in the legislation prepared by his own ministers and discussed in his own cabinet, and our opponents are having a field day. I hope our Republican cousins won't make the same mistake.
