    It works in your favor if you are trying to win an election. Not so much if you are trying to get your husband to the doctor.

    To keep our faces turned toward change, and behave as free spirits in the presence of fate--that is strength undefeatable. (Helen Keller)

      But Obama had better hope that people don't wake up to the truth. That being that he HAD THE CHANCE, the maybe once-in-our-lifetime chance, to make massive, game-changing improvements to the system. If ever we had a chance of getting Single Payer done, it was during the HCR debate. Had Barack Obama pushed 24/7, using his "bully pulpit", the demand for Single Payer from the American people would have become so loud that no amount of lobbyists could have stopped it.

      But Barack Obama did not do that. Not because "the votes weren't there" or any of the other lies he and others spouted. But rather because he did not WANT Single Payer. We. Were. Sold. Out.
