12. Actually, he'd be cutting off our support and spitting in our faces.
There must be some things in a civilized society that are non-negotiable.

For many millions of us, universal health care is one of those things. Well, it seems that we've already accepted the fact that universal health care just ain't gonna happen.

So we have already compromised to the point of a "public option." Anything less will make Obama a one-term president. And a disgraced one at that.
