  •  I don't think that Democrats gave an inch (0+ / 0-)

    in the healthcare debate. The problem is that Democrats are not homogenous. The law we have was the best bill a majority of Democratic legislators could support. Even when attempts were made to get a few Republicans on board, those attempts were also about getting conservadems on board.

    And what is more, I don't even hate the conservadems who saddled us with private insurance companies into the unknown future, because without them, we wouldn't have controlled the agenda in both houses of Congress, and nothing at all would have gotten passed. And I feel strongly that what we have in the ACA is significantly better than where we would be without it.
