  •  when Lieberman announced (2+ / 0-)

    he would filibuster medicare for all we no longer had the votes.

    •  Wow...one person dictates health care policy... (0+ / 0-)

      ...in a country of 320 million.

      And when Lieberman announced this, Majority Leader Reid took him to the woodshed, right?

      I'm so sick of being told "This is all we could do" as Americans are being failed endlessly by those who are supposed to make their lives a better. If Lieberman was gumming up the works, you f**king smack him down in public and proceed without him...via reconciliation, if necessary.

      Or, end the filibuster for good and let majority rule...God forbid.

      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.

      •  yes that's right (0+ / 0-)

        because Liberman's vote was necessary.  I'm really sick of people who don't understand politics at all.  Yeah, sure, smack him down in public and that will force him to vote for what you want.  It's all so easy when you aren't the one who actually has to get it done.  

        •  And I'm really sick of people who don't understand (0+ / 0-)

          ...that politics should NEVER trump what is best for the American people.

          I understand politics just fine, thank you very much. What I don't understand are defeatists who never, EVER demand that our government be run better and smarter.

          But by all means, please proceed with your apathy and acquiescence...

          •  you are very naive (0+ / 0-)

            Public policy is only as progressive as the votes that allow it. You haven't figured that out yet?  

            And your arrogance in thinking you know anything at all about me is breathtaking.  Just confirms for me that you don't understand politics at all.

            •  Know little about you = don't understand politics (0+ / 0-)

              And you dare call me arrogant...

              As I wrote, please proceed...
