Senate FAIL. Also, Joe Lieberman is an idiot.
Since I'm a Red Sox fan AND a politics junkie AND an activist, I don't get discouraged easily. This bill was never enough, never perfect, because it couldn't be --not yet, anyway-- and still have a chance of passing. But I had such hopes for it, that it was a baby step that could start my country on the road to something better, someday.
We're going to get a healthcare bill, all right, but with its life almost all the way sucked out. I'm starting to believe that there's no way ANYTHING productive can get through the propaganda and the posturing and the fearmongering. I guess I'll keep railing against it, because for the time being, anyway, I have no bloody choice.
