So, you've probably been wondering, what's going on with health care? I think I can describe what's happening with a paragraph.
The President and the people who matter, none of whom are the liberals or progressives who object to it, got together and decided that since there was a big defeat recently that might have had something to do with health care, they should pass the bill that the voters didn't like. There was more polling this week that suggests that the key provisions of the "compromise" bill, which is mostly the Senate bill with minor changes [two links], are things that voters will punish Democrats for at the polls this year.
Meanwhile, the usual crowd of frothmouths is saying that the new bill is a wonderful piece of legislation worthy of our undying support. No doubt these same fools will be lambasting voters (and blaming progressives) come November when they turn out Democratic congressmen in large numbers. They'll blame everyone but themselves for their foolishness, as will the Democratic politicians they are trying to impress.
Well, that's two paragraphs, but you get the idea. As you can see, there's not much to write about, at least not much that hasn't been written already.
