    Ultra-liberal, Jane Hamsher, end Senate Health Care Bull of "Bread and circuses"

    From : Legal Insurrection

    Biggest Defection of The Day (That You Never Heard About)

    Forget the junior Congressman from Alabama who is defecting to the Republicans. The big defection of the day was the decision by Jane Hamsher, proprietor of the left-wing Firedoglake group blog and organizer of the Hadassah Lieberman boycott, to appear on Fox News to call for the Democratic health care proposals to be defeated.


    While Hamsher is ultra-liberal, she points out that the Senate bill will lead to increased costs on the middle class. Sure, Hamsher may be harping on a point that is not key to her agenda, but she recognizes that she needs to appeal to more conservative voters if she is to kill the bill.

    This is a case of the Left understanding -- for its own reasons -- why the Senate bill is a monstrosity. As I mentioned the other day, at least the left-wing has some principles, even if I disagree with those principles. The right-wing and vast center-right have principles, with which I agree.

    The only people without principles are the Democrats in the Congress who are cutting backroom deals in an unseemly, secretive process in which legislators have been legally bribed for their votes with our money.

    This process has created a truncated, haphazard, pork-laden, corrupt piece of legislation which should be defeated

    Caught part of that interview myself. Was interesting to see a lefty saying exactly what I'm thinking.

    Was also wondering about the Constitutionality of this whole bill??? Since when can the Govt tell any American they have to buy health insurance. Kinda gotta wonder about that one.

    It was interesting

    At least those on the left and on the right with any principles agree this is a bad bill (for different reasons). The only ones that don't are the Democrats.

    Of course it rather "noble" to see the Democrats fall on the "sword" for Papa Obama by trying to give him a faux legacy for his one term presidency.

    Just wondering if when push comes to shove they will actually fall on those swords for OL'BO and his lefty agenda???

    Self preservatioin is a strong motivator and we all know these Clowns don't want to lose their cushy jobs??

    Also I think the Reps are going to try to go afterthe legality of some of the "deals" that were made. Something to do with the Rules they have to follow. Should be interesting.

    The fight over ObamaCare is all on the Left with Neo-Marxists, Neo-Fascists and Old School Socialists battling in a steel cage death match

    This whole mess is far from over.

    There are too many batty goofball leftists, who have too many go/no go criteria, for the medical Marxism bill to ever just skate through reconciliation.
