If indeed this health care bill passes, people across the country will have to start examining the basic assumptions with which we have heretofore approached politics. The thing I have learned above all else in this campaign is that the corporate control of government is much more extensive than I ever imagined, and the tools we have to fight its influence are ineffective.

What if the Senate, either through Faustian compromise, reconciliation, or nuclear option, votes out a bill that is something much, much less that what we (and by “we” I mean something like 70% of Americans) would call meaningful health care reform? Dare we let the something less than perfect but still preferred be the enemy of the maybe not good but better than what we now have?

This one won’t go down the memory hole. Thanks to everyone who put an exclamation point at the end of that sentiment with their contribution.
