ObamaCare and the Liberal Obsession

Now Democrats say this vote is about “history.” No, it’s about their history. As with past failures to federalize health care, the air in 2009 is full of static-high unemployment, Afghanistan, a terrorist prison in Illinois and a petulant White House. The Democrats’ familiar problems with the politics of universal health care have turned the bill into one of the most degraded legislative exercises in congressional history. Left-wing Dems like Howard Dean are screaming “kill” the Senate bill, suggesting a progressive Jonestown over it. Public support is below 40%. This is probably the final death struggle for universal health care. They may let Harry Reid’s Senate seat itself go down in the bloodbath over the 70-year obsession. Anyone remotely opposed to this idea had better step forward. History says ObamaCare isn’t a done deal til the fat lady votes.
