>Absolutely infuriating. Is Obama totally distracted by escalating
Afghanistan and the world climate change summit and his staff have got
the whole debate backwards?!
I mean it's mind-boggling that they'd prod Lieberman towards further
killing the most important legislation of a generation.
There's also a fundamental flaw here with the way the Senate works
that this one person or a handful of peole end up with all of the
power. Majority rule: we only need 51 votes for anything there but
these few can hold up an kill such important progress.
The combined bill with the House better include a real public option
(no triggers, maybe opt-out by state). Although no matte what now the
most essential element for controlling cost is out of both: there
won't be a govenment body setting the rates for health care services.
Fucking garbage. Hey Americans, don't get sick, if you do, die quickly
because the US Government and health insurance companies hate you.
