But its not the R's that are holding this ship up at this point, even if the House and Obama wanted to force this thing through, the Senate is douching up the whole thing.
The R's have a simple strategy - water this thing down enough that it doesnt work, and then claim that it doesnt work because its government run. This way they can continue to operate under the false pretense that theyre really against large Government, and blame the Democratic government for the failure of health insurance / care reform.
The real kick in the pants is that they dont even have to enact this strategy to its full extent, because the moron Dems are going to do a fine enough job watering it down and taking any true "reform" out of the bill.
Quite frankly, Obama is the most prolific and influential Dem for many years, its about time he enacts some of the strategies and tactics that he used to dispel the myths during the campaign and get tough on these Senatorial Dems who want to work against the platform that got him elected and got them their huge majorities on both sides of the congress.
If youre not calling your Senators, youre not helping. We need a ground movement like we had in the election, but too many Americans only get semi-motivated politically every 4 years, and figure they can just sit back and let the bureaucrats run the government.
