Connecticut would barely make county status in Texas, yet their jackass senator is doing his best to pass a bill that contains a mandate to buy insurance, but no public option, thereby affecting the lives of many million of his non-constituents, as well as getting the insurance companies a really nice Christmas present. In some ways I’m starting agree with Howard Dean –
This is essentially the collapse of health care reform in the United States Senate. Honestly the best thing to do right now is kill the Senate bill, go back to the House, start the reconciliation process, where you only need 51 votes and it would be a much simpler bill.”
…Dean essentially said that if Democratic leaders cave into Joe Lieberman right now they’ll be left with a bill that’s not worth supporting.
Can we strip Connecticut of state status, for the crime electing this jackass, thereby fixing the problem?
i haven’t seen a bill yet that is worth supporting. if they show a government run bill that gives me the same quality of health care that members of congress or the president get then i’m all for it. the blatant arrogance of both parties is suffocating “YOU SHALL TAKE THIS HEALTH CARE AND LIKE IT, mean while we will give ourselves the best care in the world.” what would health care be like if we could just go to progressive.com and buy the plan we need, and check prices from 10 other companies? i guess it’s asking too much to have people be that responsible though. we need to be told when and where to take a shit.
