    Yup. In order to get this done, the progressives had to bend to the conservatives who ruined the bill. It's incredible that anyone could ever blame the liberals for this because they would have gladly had a public option or single payer but conservatives (in both parties) just wouldn't listen to reason.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    We soured on it because it's not liberal enough. That's what you don't get. There is overwhelming support for a public option which is not in the senate version of the bill.

    Let's see a poll showing an overwhelming support for a public option. Thanks in advance.

    Huh? Conservatives make up 40 votes in the Senate. How is this a conservative problem when demo's have the 60 vote majority to pass it without a single cross party vote? Evidence of this is found by locking out any repubs from the process. Now you want to blame it on conservatives because you can't heard your own cats?


    Good one!

    Nice try to shift blame. This bill is totally owned by the Democrats.
