  •  pffft. we can't even pass the time of day (1+ / 0-)

    We've compromised and "negotiated" and caved in so much, that nobody trusts us anymore to do or accomplish anything.  We couldn't even pass a goddamn public-option that had 70% public support at a time when we had filibuster-proof majorities in both chambers--and instead we sold out and turned it into a corporate welfare bill.

    We had out best chance for decades to accomplish something.  We sold out and blew it.

    We thoroughly deserve the thrashing we are about to get.  I hope it at least teaches us something.

    •  Sadly you are correct. (0+ / 0-)

      The only quarrel I would have is that actually I believe RK2/DK poll had support of a robust public option at 80%, but our leaders still did not have the ability to pass it. An opportunity to insure everyone regardless of cost, but because it is a basic people powered human right was lost.
