A few nuggets of Olbermann sanity:
The men of the current moment have lost to the mice of history.
They must now not make the defeat worse by passing a hollow shell of a bill for the sake of a big signing ceremony.They've done it for the money, lots and lots of money.
The American insurance cartel is the 'Death Panel' and this Senate bill does nothing to destroy it.Pre-existing conditon...you know 'Being Alive!'
Who do we have to blame for this? There are enough villans to go around. Grassley (R-IA)...DeMint (R-SC), Baucus (D-MT), Nelson (D-NE)...for lots and lots of money..and Lieberman (I-CN)...has become a Senatorial prostitute.
And sadly, the President of the United States has not provided the leadership his office demands.
Mr. President, the line between compromise and compromised is a thin one.
Sir, if they're going to call you a socialist no matter what you do, you have been given full unfettered freedom to do what you know is just.
So why not give the haters, as the saying goes, something to cry about?
...this is the equivalent of medical mobster protection money.
This bill is less fetish and more bondage.
President Obama...Sir, kill this mutated version of the bill.
The golden rule of heath care reform...First, 'Do No Harm.'
