  •  I've done my part. (0+ / 0-)

    I've made phone calls to the Democratic Congressional leadership and to my Congressional delegation. I've also contributed $100 to the progressive candidates who've claimed to stand for the public option.

    I don't see the White House or the House Leadership doing their part. I don't see them aggressively attacking the lies and the lying liars who have been telling the lies. I don't see WH or the Democratic Leadership pursuing the public option with the same vim and vigor that they used to pursue their elected offices.

    If the Republicans were making a better case for  their program, then that would be one thing. But we're not fighting against a different viewpoint of the facts, we're fighting against pure, unadulterated bullshit.

    I'm tired of a Democratic leadership that is either too timid (or corrupt) to forcefully say: "Their Emperor has No Clothes." Especially when winning this battle would effectively win the war for generations to come. Getting a public option for the American people is not only good policy, it's good politics. If the Democrats were to deliver affordable, quality health care to the American people, then it would produce an enduring Democratic majority similar to the 50 year majority delivered by the New Deal.

    The only reason that I can see why the Democrats are not pushing this, is because they are too corrupted by corporate interests in general and by health care money in particular.
