Last week Nancy Pelosi was health-care Jesus. And the progressive caucus were gods. They were actually behaving like proper democrats! They were refusing to vote for a watered-down bill! They were our idols! And now, they've both screwed us over.
But health care nuts around here don't seem to care. Slinkerwink posts her most reasonable diary ever on the subject. Pelosi and the P.C. get no mention whatsoever. Hey Slinkerwink, they betrayed us! They promised us a good bill and we get watered down crap. Why are we rolling over?
Am I the only one who's pissed off about this?! Am I the only one who's mad and not just depressed? I came to expect more and I for one am not going to give up more easily. We need to hold each and every one of the individual Democrats who caved and plotted and finessed this and think that we'll roll over and do nothing or have a drink and try to forget it ever happened. This House bill is going to kill people and they want us to pretend that they tried their best. Well that's not going to happen. We need to take a page from the far-right republicans and make lists, and make plans, and make sure that each and every one of the house dems who rolled us suffer in their next election.
