Fari Vagnari a Pizzu

Single payer plan
Public option
Medicare buy-in
Consumer mandate to buy private insurance
Government sponsored protection racket


  1. My liberal friends told me months ago (when the public option, in some form, was still on the table) that any reform was positive and a small chink in the armor so it should be supported.

    ANY reform.

    Your checklist/slash list is the same as mine.

    I agree with Governor Howard (“I have a scream”) Dean:

    Kill it.

    It no longer serves any workable purpose, except to strengthen the hold that insurance companies have on the public. And, in an obscene fashion.

    There is no chink in the armor. There is no movement forward. Indeed, it is more of a weight on the shoulders of the working class than ever before.

    Now I go back to what I told my Democratic confidantes 2 years ago: “Sure, Obama is magical and enigmatic but, if you really want to support him you’ll have to keep secret one simple fact: he has no experience and he won’t know what he’s doing if you actually elevate him to the presidency.”

    Here we are. I’m not one to say, “I told you so,” and especially not now. Because I can’t get a conservative, or a less conservative (i.e. Republican) friend to tell me how things would be different with a McCain/Palin administration.

    There just wouldn’t be the teabaggers and the “9/12″ers who keep trying to delegitimize a black president.

  2. Bill,

    As far as I am concerned you can say ‘I told you so’ all day. Because you did and you were right.
