>White House thanks Lieberman for blocking President’s reform promise, but now criticizes Howard Dean for defending it

>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.

>The Big Lie

>"I've seen the Big Lie technique — say anything loud enough, often
enough and it'll sound like truth, but I considered it a tool of
totalitarian governments, and not possible in America."

-Captain America (as written by Steve Englehart sometime in the 70s)

Wow, reminds me of all the misinformation and patent lies the right
wing nutjobs spout on the radio, tv and through email about Preisdent
Obama and his policies. Both during the Preidential campaign and now
for almost anything he does, but especially for the health care debate.

Death panels! Mass abortions! Socialism! (as typically used when they
mean communism)

>Rep. Alan Grayson on CNN

Representative Grayson tells it like it is. The only person putting across the real sense of urgency appropriate to this debate.

Who is the douchebag who keeps claiming that Republicans have several plans? If they have so many plans, how come they haven’t put even one forward for consideration? Idiot.

And so many people think CNN is liberal…what a joke. If liberals and conservatives are both unhappy with their representation on CNN, then CNN is either sufficiently neutral or completely inept.

>More Evidence of Our Broken Health Care System

I’m not necessarily on board with every point this video makes but the fundamental truth is in there: health insurance companies face pressure to increase profits, like any other business. But they are such huge businesses now that they end up spending tons of money lobbying, way too much of what each member pays in premiums goes to marketing and non-health related costs. They also feel pressure to cut costs and do so almost ruthlessly by denying legitimate health care needs of its members.

We shouldn’t be too surprised as this is the way of for-profit businesses, which health care companies didn’t used to be in the US, they were non-profit entities originally. Perhaps that’s the only way to rein in this out of control system that’s no longer based on providing the best possible care.

>Alan Grayson Stands up to Republican Hacks on Health Care

This is funny, but the best part they didn’t include: when Grayson stated that our current health care crisis amounts to another holocaust. Extreme? Or is there a nugget of truth in there…

I’m just glad Grayson is finally standing up, I’ve been talking to his aides for months trying to get to the bottom of why he wouldn’t come out in steadfast support of a public option. Now I think it was because he was hoping that Single Payer made it. Unfortunately Single Payer doesn’t have much chance, but a Public Option could definitely, and will I hope, pass this year.

I love your pinko commie heart, Mr. Grayson. Thanks for your defiance.

So somebody just made the Fallout 3 universe into a film. Crazy that post-apocalyptia is fast becoming the new main stream genre of choice. Zombies, vampires and post-apocalyptic wastelands dominate pop culture – is everyone becoming a nerd?
