59. It won't be 10 or 20 years this time...
because if it doesn't pass this time, its going anywhere as an issue. It'll be the issue tomorrow, in two years, in four years, in eight years. It will be a lead albatross for moderate dems and everybody to the right of them until it passes. Every step of the way it'll hamstring Republicans and cut the legs out off the careers of blue dogs. Americans want real healthcare change, anybody who stands in the way of that will get run over by it.

This is the issue of no compromise...sometimes situations require that you not be even remotely reasonable or flexible to another position because the moderate position represents no improvement or change. This is why the nation keeps drifting to the right, because of quisling dems like you who have no guts and think we should never take a stand.

So...yes.

Yes to all of it.
