Friday, June 19, 2009Here we go again. The Senate Finance Committee, in its infinite fealty to insurance companies, leaves the public option out of its bill and then is surprised to learn that taking out the major cost-saving measure is going to make health care reform really expensive, forcing them to scale back the program? Do they think we're idiots?
So, where is our "Great Leader" in the face of the collapse of his single biggest legislative initiative? Oh, are we just going to "keep our powder dry" some more so he can screw up the climate change bill too? Can we have some of that audacity we heard so much about in the campaign, please?
