  •  Dean is as wrong as Grayson (0+ / 0-)

    ....and both play to the netroots.  For obvious reasons.

      If you're making the argument that they won't use it, I won't disagree with you - I try not to make predictions about the future. Only time will tell.

      If you're making the argument that it's impossible, and that Dean among others is misleading us intentionally... then that raises another question.

      Why should I support someone who intentionally manipulates me?

        It won't happen because it can't happen.  You might be able to get a few corrections to the current system in via reconcilliaiton, but comphrehensive HCR? No.  It's not designed for that.  Every Senator knows it, which is why no one is seriously discussing it, except people w/ their own agenda like Grayson and Dean.

        Why indeed.
