Once again I find myself agreeing with The New York Times.
Now The Times editorializes that the Democrats should pass Obamacare without any Republican votes.
I can't think of a faster way for Democrats to commit political hari kari. The effect on the political futures of Blue Dog Democrats would be delightfully drastic. Election Day 2010 is just around the corner, and public support of Democrats is falling because of their attempts to socialize healthcare reform, not because of their inability to do so.
Medicare/Medicaid are bankrupt.
Obama wants Medicare/Medicaid for all.
"Everybody abandon the healthcare insurance that you like, and jump onto the USS (Universally Sinking Swiftly) Obamacare."
"And have faith in our Great Pilot."
Kim Jong Il?
No, in Obama-messiah, following the wisdom of his Great Teacher, Saint Teddy of Chappaquiddick.
