    do you? Here again you talk about "Obama giving up the public option before the first shots were fired over HCR". Did it ever occur to you he and the Democrats already knew they didn't have the votes and got the best deal they could get? What we got was a HCR bill passed into law, giving congress the right by law to reform health care for years to come. Even then they had to get parts of it under reconciliation. No bill or law in the history of the congress gave people everything they wanted initially. We are still reforming social security and civil rights. If no deal had been made we wouldn't have gotten the one or two republican votes. Not to mention the public option.
