  •  AHIP just came out and said... (4+ / 0-)

    ...that no matter what we do, they're going to increase premiums over 100% over 10 years.  

    If that's not a STRONG incentive to cut them off at the knees with a good solid public option, then I have no idea what is.

    AHIP put a target on itself with this report.  Dems can only win by fighting them.

    Assuming they care about winning anymore (which is not in evidence).

    You are entitled to express your opinion. But you are NOT entitled to agreement.

       As Tom Daschle has shown, caving to corporate interests and being driven out of one's congressional seat is not necessarily an unfavorable event for the politician in question.

       I don't know how many Democrats remain in government who actually care about serving the public, rather than themselves. I guess we'll find out. But I'm not liking the odds.
