Hardball-Skvara-Forum Retired steel worker, Steve Skvara, who told his unfortunate and heartfelt story of how he lost his health care last night at the AFL-CIO Democratic candidate forum, appeared on "Hardball" today. Skvara, despite being asked a few dumb questions and being talked over by Chris Matthews, does a fine job of explaining his current situation and the direction our country needs to go with health care. Steve handily takes the Republicans and one Democrat to task for wanting the corporations to continue to control health care in America.

Skvara: "Well, they're talking the talk, but they're not walking the walk, if you know what I mean. I mean, their answer is well, let the corporations take care of it. I mean, even one of the Democratic candidates had made the statement we have to invite them to the table, the insurance companies. They've been at the table for the last 35 years and they've been eating our lunch."
