Note: After you watch the above video make sure you check this out:
Idiots at the 9/12 Protests (Slide-show & Video w/ Color Commentary)!.

Summary: Cenk explains why it's a good thing that there is absolutely no Republican support for Senator Max Bacaus' healthcare bill. Basically it's because the bill is terrible and just a big giveaway to the private insurance industry. But now that there's no Republican support, there is no (good) reason to try and pass a bill with no public option, no ability to negotiate with Big Pharma, etc. It puts tremendous pressure on reluctant Dems to have to vote for a better bill, especially since some good Dems have put their foot down by demanding a better bill.

Also Watch These 5 Clips You May Have Missed:

1)-Did You Know Domestic Violence Could Be A Pre-existing Condition?

2)-Jane Hamsher On Healthcare, Obama & Deals w/ Industry

3)-CNN (Amazingly) Has Great Segment On Healthcare & Corrupt Politicians!

4)-Is The Upcoming SC Ruling More Important Than Healthcare Reform?

5)-Bush vs. Clinton Record: Do Tax Cuts Work? (Interesting #'s)

4. K& R #5 They have no excuse not to pass a REAL health care bill.
If they don't pass a real bill that actually helps the people we be very screwed.

It's pretty clear for Reid, no compromises the Ted Kennedy version out of the senate.

Though I don't think it is much a surprise that republicans, to a one, won't vote for anything Democratic. They would lose the majority of their base, the lunatic fringe. I doubt the old money interests would go anywhere, but even with both intact they don't have the numbers.

15. Open note to Harry Reid
I am from Nevada and you know my family (Thornley) I worked
for you from the time you ran for Governor. You can not pass
a bill that has no restriction from pre-existing conditions
and no public option and a mandate to buy insurance. If you
do I promise that my family will do every thing in their
power to unseat you. That is not a threat it is a promise.
