Obama messes up on health care, big time

Obama messes up on health care, big time:
What was the point of signaling, right at this crucial moment, that he’s willing to give away the public plan? Let alone doing it at the very moment that he was making such a good case for it?
Maybe because Obama's corporate masters don't want him to enact a public plan, nor do they even want him to use the idea as leverage. I'm just saying.


  1. *sigh*
    I did have such hopes for your country, I really did :-(.

  2. Yeah, so did I... thirty years ago.

  3. When I think about the fact that the Democrats are poised to squander the opportunity to seriously reform health care in the USA, it's taking enormous willpower to get through any half-hour period without erupting in shouted obscenities.

    Even typing this comment without obscenities is all I can handle right now.

    We have been utterly had.

    The "leaders" of this party don't want sensible health care any more than the knuckle-draggers leading the other party.


Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
