    I didn't see any problem with it.

    Really, start with the "47 million" line that has been proven wrong several times. Drop the +/-18 mill. that are between 20 -35 yrs old that choice not to buy it. The +/-15 mill. illegals. +/-9 mil. that could be on Medicare/Medicad. That leaves about 5 mill. that really needs the coverage. So 310 mill. people need to have the best health care in the world totally redone just to bring in 5 mill.? Instead of just figuring out how to pick them up.

    Second thing wrong, using kids. Maybe Bush should have used kids to promote the Iraq war. Singing kids just make everything better.

    I just dont think doing things like this is healthy especially to young kids thats just my opinion. I also feel CNN here is showing its not being so newsy as more a propaganda mouth piece.

    They are pushing their political ideas on undeveloped children. How many of those kids actually understand what they are singing about?

    You guys crack me up. They're a bunch of kids. No one is pushing an agenda, they are just commenting on what has happened with this issue so far.

    doesnt it pretty much decline to take a specific position apart from saying that everyone agrees there's a problem?

    which i think is the position of both the main parties?

    whats odd is that cnn appears to be hosting 'kids school idol' or summat, ..., it couldn't've been that slow a news day really could it? its just 'dumbing down' the news coverage

    I thought that was pretty clear personally but apparently if you even mention health care reform you're pushing 'propaganda' about it.

    maybe we're all being informed by our own bias's?

    I'd be willing to be convinced if someone wants to point to a specific line or time

    the kids 'joy' does seem fairly genuine to me but why its on cnn escapes me, ..., i'd not really be willing to fork out for a news channel that dealt in such inconsequential stuff, ('nice' tho it was).

    [edit to add]
    i suppose the chrous questioning the possible efficiency/effectivness of the market might be seen as propaganda, ..., but then that what the debate largely is
