    between the time Al Franken was finally allowed into the Senate in July and Ted Kennedy was gone in August.

    There were too many conservatives in the Democratic Party to permit single payer to pass. You have an exaggerated idea of how big our side actually is. The Democratic Party is not our side, it only includes our side.

    We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"

      Are we fighting only to keep the crazies out of the senate?

      If we can't count on sound policy holding strong majorities in congress and a huge mandate out of a presidential election, when, if ever, will we ever see sound policy?

      Dick Durbin is more or less fighting to cut SS...Patty Murray is schmoozing with Paul Ryan trying to cook our latest budget "deal".

      Do we even know who is on our (progressives') side anymore?

      Adequate health care should be a LEGAL RIGHT in the U.S without begging or bankruptcy. Until it is, we should not dare call our society civilized.
