Repeat After Me

They are never going to vote for any health care bill.

They are never going to vote for any health care bill.

They are never going to vote for any health care bill.

They are never going to vote for any health care bill:

Two key senators criticized the most recent healthcare compromise Sunday, saying the policies replacing the public option are still unacceptable.

Sens. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) both said a Medicare “buy-in” option for those aged 55-64 was a deal breaker.

“I’m concerned that it’s the forerunner of single payer, the ultimate single-payer plan, maybe even more directly than the public option,” Nelson said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Lieberman said Democrats should stop looking for a public option “compromise” and simply scrap the idea altogether.

Lieberman and Nelson were two of the ten Senators who crafted the god damned compromise. They are now shitting all over the compromise THEY crafted and saying it is a non-starter.

There’s more in John’s post, so read it all. And perhaps you’d like to send Harry Reid a note asking him why Holy Joe keeps his Committee Chair.
