Tom Daschle thinks the president should drop the public option:
“We’ve come too far and gained too much momentum for our efforts to fail over disagreement on one single issue,” the Senator and one-time HHS Secretary nominee said, according to ABC News.
This “one single issue” is the whole point! Otherwise we’re just pumping a trillion dollars into the shitty, corrupt system we already have. Goddamn. Is there not a single Democrat with some balls to stand with — hell — 76 percent of the American people? Is it really so difficult to go along with a super-majorty of the people?
I can’t believe some of these spinelss bastards who faint at the slightest indication of a Republican tantrum — despite overwhelming popular support for the public option. Just staggering. Someone send Daschle a pamphlet about low-T.
