      We're now being fed a line about "incremental progress," even though the folks in charge know that these legislative opportunities happen, on average, about once every fifteen years.

      The last time the Democrats controlled the White House and both houses of Congress was 1993-1994.  The time before that was 1977-1980.  The idea of passing reform one increment at a time is absurd on its face:  if we manage to win an "increment" every time we get the opportunity, we'll have a public option by 2070.
