    @Susan NJ I heard health care stocks went down when Scott Brown was elected Senator and the possibility of Health Care Reform legislation was put in question.

    661 GM dealers saved glad to hear that.

    You would think that families in that church would get their children needed medical care.

    A lot of times coming to the door to get cheesecake.

    Good night everyone. Have a great weekend all.

    the republicans are obstructionist and want nothing to do with moving the country forward. Anderson if you want to report on keeping them honest then use the facts: the republicans used reconciliation 22 times and deem and pass 200 times under Bush. So you need to bring out these facts if your going to make me believe your keeping them honest!

    I don't know, those old people look pretty shady to me. They probably run a stolen walker ring.

    no where in the bible does God sanction with holding medical care. he has standards but is a loving God who wants people to be as healthy as they can. you cant serve God if u are dead. come on people, read the whole bible!

    @Cynthia, NC, The government is incapacitated. They don't have the immediate fund to move the people or provide adequate. They have to ask for loans which require detailed plan from the international community. All the private donation money go to charities. There are about 10,000 of them but they are not working together to help the people. Sean Penn was referring to Chaities bureaucracy in haiti, the charities are more powerful than the goverment.

    Turning to medicine is a sign of weakness? Many would argue that our medical knowledge is a gift from God. I've cared for many deeply religious patients–they've told me that they pray that my hands will be guided as I operate on them. I'm always humbled by their faith.

    "Erica Hill on 360- nice surprise – Anderson you look like your best friend just came through the door – nice..."

    I agree with you! It brought a great smile to ACs face, and I think to many of ours too! It was a wonderful surprise. What a terrific way to end the week. 🙂

    This disaster in Haiti is incredibly terrible...what happened to ALL that money we all donated these past months???!!
    And GREAT to see Erica. I had NO idea what happened to her and every night wondered why she wasn't on.
    Now I somewhat know...at least where she's at. But...I'll miss her, here. The two of you, Anderson, made such a PERFECT newscast team. Her talent, style, humor and compassion is greatly missed on AC360.

    Good evening Anderson – I have one question – why do we have to wait 4 or so years before some of the health bill kicks in?? It's kind of like buying a car and paying for it for 4 years, then actually receiving in 4 years later before you can drive it!!!
