If this quip by Paul Krugman is all that Eric Alterman needs to support the Senate compromise on health reform, it should come as no surprise that he could utter the following:

"Remember, nothing is easier than stopping something in our political system and doing something is always riskier than doing nothing." Alterman

Is this some new law of social science? Was it better to abolish Glass-Steagall Act than doing nothing? Was it better to enact the legislation enabling the Wall Street casino from 2000 on than doing nothing? Was it better to invade Iraq than doing nothing? This is the most vapid logic imaginable.

In all fairness, I must confess that I agree entirely with Alterman's statement below.

"Barack Obama took a helluva risk when he decided to make health-care reform the centerpiece of his administration's first two years." Alterman

The president, his liberal flacks, and the Democrats in Congress have no idea the risk they've taken.

When you're sick, you know it.

When you find out that you have a chronic illness or life threatening disease, you know it.

When you can't get the health care you need, you know it.

When you, family members, and friends suffer because you can't get health care, you know it.

And when you look for those who caused your suffering and sickness and that of your family and friends, you will most assuredly know who they are.
