    really has them scared.
    I suspected that "public option" didn't fly because the word "public" had been so thoroughly demonized in some communities. And the politicians, who are wanting to be petty potentates, have no use for the public at all.

    Then I thought that the substitution of health care for Medicare or medical care for all was a bad idea because healthy people don't need care. But, now it seems that everybody wants care; everybody wants to be cared for. Nobody wants to give that up. But, many people who desperately want care, even if it comes from that thin guy with the big ears, are scared because they don't know how to care themselves. What are they going to have to do in exchange? People tell them there's a mandate, but what does that mean? How can people pay a penalty when they have no money?

    Care or scare?

      Banking on the American people to be able to sort all this out and declare the adult in the room the winner is a very big bet. -Digby
