  •  Well, the idea was that we could get (0+ / 0-)

    a strong public option by including the opt-out clause.

    Anything I supported would include a "you have to try it first" clause, which I did hear on the Hill (I don't remember where anymore).

    I don't necessarily agree with you about passing it. Remember that Obama was against it too--he had made a deal with the hospitals and the insurance companies before any of this started. Any allies of his in the Senate would be pushing against a strong PO, not for.

    I wish I had fully understood that from the beginning.

    The party of Kennedy is also the party of Eastland. The party of Javits is also the party of Goldwater. Where is our party? Where is the political party that will make it unnecessary to march on Washington?
