9 December 2009: Health Care or Wealth Care:
Another Deadline Looms
decided I have nothing more to say, having determined what really needs to be
done, induced evolution, I realized, after reading today's news, that we can
move in that direction by supporting whatever health-care legislation Congress
can pass, for this simple reason:
Obama's was a protest victory rather than a mandate for Progressive action. Moderates, the true majority in this country, joined with liberal Republicans and all Democrats to elect Obama. I think the color of his skin had very little to do with it, though I do rejoice with the Afro-American population for this historic victory.
I have read a summary of the legislative compromise in the Senate announced by Majority Leader Harry Reid, who is, by the way, antichoice.
Here is today's New York Times report-- www.nytimes.com/2009/12/10/health/policy/10health.htm -- on as much information as Reid divulged. Details are forthcoming.
