    Do you think McCain would even be offering it?  Do you think those republicans would vote for it again?  Cause that's pretty naive thinking on your part.

      What the fuck difference does that make? A GOOD ammendment with popular support was up for a vote, and it went down in flames because Obama opposed it, and ONLY because Obama opposed it. The man who is powerless to twist arms in the senate twisted arms in the senate to directly weaken the bill.

      You've got nothing. Nothing. The whole point of this was that it failed because Obama was dealing with the bastards. You've come full circle now.

        It's because PHRMA opposed it.  You ignore their power at your own peril.

        Watch.  Have the amendment come up outside of health reform and watch the administration push for it.  I'll bet you it will fail again, but then you'll probably still blame the administration for that as well.

          quivering little scaredy cat, aren't you:

          You ignore their power at your own peril.

          This is what Adams is referring to as a "loser mentality".  It's common not only in the administration, but also among the cheerleaders that are so beaten up by the last ten years that they can't discern any power to produce change of their own.
