    No, it complements my other posts. I don't agree that politicians messed up health care reform, but I do agree they will mess up health care reform because they are going to go out of their way to mess it up some more.

    we know why.

    You obviously don't understand what I'm saying. In the second quote from your post, I said I don't think the health care bill is crap. In the first quote, I said if Ryan's assumptions and estimates are correct, then politicians are going to screw up health care reform.

    Is that clear enough?

    And no, I'm not Paul Krugman lol

    Re: Congressional Budget Office Consistently Wrong on Health Care Estimates

    @repeter, i understand very well what you're saying. i'm just pointing out that you obviously don't feel that we 'need politicians to not f**k something up for once' since you feel they didn't mess up the health care bill.

    i absolutely agree that the republicans won't make it any better. in fact i'm certain they'll do very little to change it at all, this is just theater so that their base won't feel betrayed when health care reform continues as planned. and it'll work, just how the dems' base don't whine quite as much about our foreign wars now that obama's in the white house.

    if i can get a few people to quit looking at the theater and realize what they're doing to us all this damned typing will be worth it. otherwise i can keep diligently analyzing the issues to form wise opinions without sharing anything i learn with others.

    (now that i've taken this ship significantly off course i can hand the wheel back as we snake through the waters of political discourse.)
