    17 senators sign public option push, 2 more express support | Raw Story

    :clap2: Are Dems finally acting like a Majority? I hope this is just the beginning of the push for finally passing REAL Healthcare Reform.

    Thoughts?

    It's funny how proponents of the public option say we need it "to keep private health insurance companies honest" like they're one big cartel. If they are indeed colluding to artificially inflate health care costs then certainly they could be prosecuted for it, as it's against the law.

    My evaluation: the push for a public option has absolutely nothing to do with "competition."

    Edit to add: i don't see how this changes anything. The senators that will sign this thing showing their support for a public option supported it before this as well. Does anyone think that because they're "formally" declaring their desire for one that it's going to swing other democrats or a single republican in favor of it?

    LOL, All democratic senatorial grandstanding for their base aside, last time I checked 17+2 doesn't equal 51 nor does it equal 60, all it adds up to are a handful of senators that are foolish enough to express support for parliamentary shenanigans that they apparently think the American People won't notice.

    If they thought last summer was bad, wait until they see what happens if they try to actually pull off this little reconciliation scheme they've cooked up.

    And we will strike down upon them with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy our nation. And they will know WE ARE THE PEOPLE when we lay our vengeance upon them.
