    this would be a wise time for defenders of health care reform to start fighting for a public option

      Nonetheless, this would be a wise time for defenders of health care reform to start fighting for a public option, otherwise the entire reform debate will focus on this court case. And in addition to the political reasons, there's a legal rationale: a public option, such as Medicare buy-in, would make the legal case moot.

      The system won't stand, anyway, because the the profound conflict of interest between the for-profit insurer and those in need of health care.

      The whole thing will be a law-enforcement issue against insurer-parasites, ultimately. A waste of health care dollars.

        If I understand your comment correctly.

        When Obama stands there and says that some people wanted the public option in the bill, and then says which would only help a couple million people, I don't think I'm allowed to write on this blog what I yelled, screamed at him on the teevee.

        What a piece of... something.  I'm so frackin stupid.  I have never been taken in by a politician and fooled as much as I've allowed him to fool me.

        Although I was critical of many of his actions and inactions, I still truly, truly believed he had it him in to be a great leader.  I was so, so wrong.

        The FP story had it right, it made the most sense to me, he's a mediator.   In fact, I commented that he would be best as a judge, that's what he's best suited for.  Someone led him astray to think that he could be a good president.  I wonder who that was.  Or if it was all his idea, then he was naive as to what the president's job is.
