Well, that was fast, Congressional Progressive Causus..??
WASHINGTON — Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) said Thursday that the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the constitutionality of President Barack Obama’s health care law means progressive lawmakers won’t be pushing for a single-payer option anymore, though the concept will live on in their minds.
Gah! From single-payer-esque UHC, to the PO, to this turd!
FWIW, in my own neck of the CPC woods, we’re still playing with options to challenging from the left. Even tho our own CPC member suddenly started voting correctly *right* at the nick of time. *Right* when I (and friends) were going to make a hobby out of challenging him from the left because of his craptastic votes. Because of the fact that he started voting correctly, the whole “challenge from the left” idea did lose a lot of steam, very rightfully. I can’t really hate on my house rep when he’s voting correctly, you know?
But my god, is the whole CPC a sellout here, or WHAT? And to think…I used to think accusing others of being a sellout was weaksauce!
