    DEMS MORE DISAPPOINTING ON STEM CELLS THAN THE GOP

    AT LEAST THE GOP took action... it was a terrible and unpopular one...

    but they said no to stem cells, vis a vis bush's veto..

    the dems who promised change, who faught bush on the 6 for '06


    and now that they have a president who reversed bush's exec order,
    this dem cropping is doing nothing


    almost 2 years with their change mantra and is there a stem cell law in america?

    nope . just a flimsy exec order...

    they want to inspire change and job creation...

    and the question is as it has always been in the bio tech sector with stem cells.......

    HOW IS THE INVESTMENT CLASS SUPPOSED TO GET BEHIND STEM CELLS

    HOW IS BIG PHARMA SUPPOSED TO TAKE THE SECTOR SERIOUSLY

    HOW IS THE M&A BOYS SUPPOSED TO CONVINCE PLAYERS

    THAT STEM CELLS IS A SAFE PLACE TO BE, ONE WHERE A STRONG FUTURE AND INVESTMENT DOLLARS CAN GO

    IF ITS NOT LAW?

    without congressional finalization.... this whole thing could change if obama loses the 2012...

    the nation needs to know that stem cells are law...

    and that the progress cant be flipped simply bc of the whims of an xec order


    im a life long dem....ONE WHO FAUGHT FOR CHANGE...

    AND YET MY DEMOCRATIC PARTY, HAS BEEN MISSING ON THE FUTURE OF BIO TECH...

    EVERYDAY WE READ INCREDIBLE RESULTS...AND THE LIVES TO BE DIGNIFIED ARE MANY

    YET THE DEMS ARE MISSING THE BOAT, THEY ARE CALCULATING THE POLITCAL EXPEDIENNCE

    INSTEAD OF DELIVERING FOR THE 75% OF AMERICANS WHO WANT STEM CELLS TO BE FINALLY BE A LAW!

    THESE DEMS SUCK......THE GOP IS WORSE

    NOTHING GETS DONE IN DC ANYMORE!

    NOT EVEN A LAY UP LIKE STEM CELLS CAN GET A A FLOOR VOTE..

    AND OBAMA IS DOING NOTHING TO ENCOURAGE THE CONGRESS TO GET HIM A STEM CELL BILL....

    MY PARTY IS TONE DEAF....
    THEY ASKED US TO RALLY FOR CHANGE
    THEY WIN

    AND WHEN THEY GET THE CHANCE TO CHANGE

    THEY BALK....

    WHERE IS THE STEM CELL ACT OF 2010?

    • If anybody here actually believes there is a difference between the Democrats and the Republicans, YOU ARE A FOOL! Both parties are bought by the corporations and the unions. People are robots. Their votes are influenced by commercials. Why else do all the special interest groups on both sides spend hundreds of millions of dollars on TV ads, Radio ads, Internet ads, etc.? They rely on people being lazy robots who will not do their Due Diligence when it comes to voting for politicians. The politicians thrive on this. So if you really believe there is a difference between the two political parties, I have a bridge that I will like to sell you, heck I'll even throw in the tollbooths.

    • The lack of a stem cell bill, points directly to the misguided nature btwn obama and his own congress..

      65 days into his tenure obama made his exec order on the issue.

      Which should have been a que to pelosi and reid that the congress should have a bill...

      In 6 for '06 within the 1st 6days of the new session congress had a stem cell bill ready....and yet, obama had to exec order it on day 65 , bc his own dem congress dropped the ball....

      Now on day almost 550 , the dem congress still hasn't produced a stem cell bill?

      And obama is content with that?

      I assure u, the dem base isn't!
      The indies aren't!
      And 50% of the gop isn't!

      Holding up this science brings the dems congress in line with the bush veto....

      AND IT IS ONE OF THE MOST BACKWARD POLICIES THE DEMS HAVE EVER DONE!

      Peolosi and reid by ignoring the issue of stem cells, which would take 24 hours to pass both houses, are now the same as bush on stem cell policy..

      And they wonder why the polls reflect a fizzle in the dem base?

      Obama and the dem congress if they go into the midterms with no stem cell law...are gonna look stupid!

      Bc as of now, this dem ain't excited about what these dems are doing...

      Infact I'm crossed eyed with disbelief at the pure lack of follow thru

    • "im a life long dem....ONE WHO FAUGHT FOR CHANGE..."

      I think you were more swindled than actually having to "fight for change..."

    • Hey Mfel,
      Send your thoughts via email to the White House. Your note may fall on deaf ears but at least you will know you tried. It is amazing to me that ACTC has the technology to remove a single cell from an Embryo without harming the Embryo which would end the Moral Majority arguement yet I have heard nothing about it in the main stream press or from Congress. There are so many cures waiting to happen and Congress, the media and the Moral Majority all have their blinders on. The Embryo does not have to be harmed to achieve amazing 21st century cures to many diseases. It's right in front of their noses and they can't see it. Sooooo sad.

      • Its true...

        Actc platform is bipartisan in its ethical reach

        Writing to white house is like deaf ears....

        Dc is stinks...both parties

        The gop isn't my cup of tea
        And the dems are tepid at best....

        Nothing ever gets done,
        And yet, an issue like stem cells should easily pass both the ends of congress, and yet neither is doing anything....

        The stem cell issue has plenty of gop traction...and could bridge a working divide btwn the parties

        And yet, many suffer from inactivity

        Inactivity that bush took
        And now inactivity the congress has taken

        How pelosi and reid seperate themselves from the bush admin on stem cells is incomprrhensible.

        They all would rather ignore cure
        And america medical advancements

        Really a sad day and age for american innovation and science

    • Here's a suggestion. When you go to the polls vote ALL INCUMBENTS out. That's Republicans, Democrats and all. If they are there now and trying to stay there try voting them out. I mean every single one of them. Good ones, bad ones must go. Only thing that will save this nation. If they are not corrupt now they will be the longer they stay. Problem here though is that most voters are just too damn lazy to study who is running and they vote the same crooks back in because it's a case of , "Oh, I recognize that name". It's just a matter of time til this nation folds. Smart minds know it's coming but they don't want to alarm the citizenry.

    • If the dems get swept, it will be bc of broken promises

    • You are exactly right. I'm a lifelong Democrat and my party has done nothing to further this cause.

      I think of a legitimate third party, with known and respected leaders, came to be formed it could really gain some traction.
