  •  We know exactly why Denns voted the way he did - (9+ / 0-)

    a purist whose pride in himself for that counts more than the millions of uninsured and underinsured that WILL benefit from this bill.

    And yes, we know how bad the bill has gotten, oh great mind.  We also know that this country won't have another shot at HCR for many decades AND that this bill is not only a step in the right direction, but many steps.

    So, you call out a diarist, then call the rest of us stupid when you put together a list of people that there have been complaints about as if they belong in the same group (can you pick out the ones that are also maligned for being a bit too purist?)

    But thanks for writing - I always love me some pooties on a Sunday morning!

      Wanting a health care bill that does half of what every other western country's health care systems do is "purity".

        I'm curious what you think other systems do.  

        Pessimism is an abject failure and will never live up to its promise. Skepticism as well, I have my doubts about it.

      •  Your statement really does not make any sense. (0+ / 0-)

        Wanting a health care bill that does half of what every other western country's health care systems do is "purity".

        I am by no means saying that purity is wanting a health care bill that does half of what other countries do.

        I am saying that not voting for a bill that does that half, and holding out for an unrealistic, never going to happen utopian bill IS purity.
