    The point of all of my diaries has been that the bill - with out a public option or coops - is so much better than the status quo that we should celebrate it as a victory.  I go on to say that coops can be pretty effective and get us almost everything that the PO can get us.  

    I stand pretty much alone among diarists trying to get a bill passed whether it has a Public Option in it or not.  I have used many devices to try to break through what has become dogma here on dailykos.

      if that, and one of the reasons you're pretty much alone is because most of us understand how important the PO is and why it's essential to reform.

      •  I think was really funny - did you read it? (0+ / 0-)

        Well - apparently, Obama, Axerlrod, etc agree with me.  I was also alone when everyone wanted to vote for Nader over Fisa.  So I like the company.

        •  If Obama signs a bill without a PO (0+ / 0-)

          you, Obama and Axelrod will be the only Democrats left, so I hope you really enjoy their company.

          I have no idea what you're talking about regarding people wanting to vote for Nader over FISA, and I have a feeling you don't either.

        Every time I read an argument for Coops I feel like I'm reading another argument from Orly Taitz.
        The argument against them is that resounding.
