21. Are you really saying that BO making a deal with drug companies
encompasses the whole of the HCR debate and represents the be all and end all of that massive bill?

Really?

As far as paying attention, anyone who was paying attention to the MSM and/or DU knows that it is simply a fact that Obama was being pounded during the HCR debate for not putting forward his own comprehensive plan and telling Congress "this is what I want passed." He was hauled over the coals for his lack of leadership by allowing Max Bachus et al to control what went into the legislation.

The fact is that even if Obama did negotiate side deals with big pharma et al the Congress didn't need to include any of that in their versions of the bill. Sure, they risked Obama's veto, but that's the way it goes. They could have done whatever they wanted.
