    Senate Dems will blow this. They have no incentive not to.

    Until public financing of campaigns is the law of the land, we're fucked. Sorry.

    They are bought and paid for. Cheaply I might add.

    George Carlin said it best: "It's a big club, folks. And you ain't in it."

      It's a matter of not being interested in it. They work for corporations, not the public. Nelson, to his "credit", was at least honest about it: anything that's better for the public than for private insurers is a non-starter--corporations and their stockholders and execs come first, and the rest of us get the leftover crumbs.

      We laughed at the teabaggers, and rightly so because they're crazy, stupid and pawns of the far-right leadership. But I'm thinking that we might need our own version of an opposition movement here on the left, because clearly, our leaders don't represent us.
