Remember when Reid and gang breathlessly announced the Medicare for 55’s and a Public Option? Killed within hours! And now, the PO begins to gain some traction again and, after months of fucking around, the White House reveals their "opening position" ASAP, without the PO or Medicare buy-in. Can there be any conclusion other than both were bargained away last year? They were dead after a closed door meeting and everything since has been theater.
I hope I’m wrong, but why else would you begin a bargaining session with a stripped Senate bill? Do they expect the Republicans to ADD nice features that truly reform the system?
I’m back to kill the goddamned thing.
Absolutely no one seems to care what the majority of American citizens and healthcare professionals desire from this stupid game.
