    Pelosi is further strengthening the control of the market over your health care decisions and you like that?

    WTF?

    These sell outs, Obama and Pelosi WANT insurance companies to become stronger.

    Why the fuck do you think insurance stocks went up after his bullshit speech?

      We're not going to get single payer in this environment, so we get what we can -- and when the American people see that the Republicans were lying with their talk about "rationed care" and "death panels" and all that rot, they'll be more open to an expansion of the program which would move us even closer to single payer.

      I'm not going to let the perfect be the enemy of the good -- I've played the slots in Vegas enough to know that sometimes you just have to take what you can get, rather than lose everything trying for that big jackpot at the end.

      Civility is the way of telling someone to go fuck themselves in such a way that the someone agrees it probably is a good idea.
