Blue Dogs Gut Health Care Reform

August 1, 2009

The culture of political horse-trading at the expense of public interest needs change. It will be a damn shame if the HCR is seen as just another feather in the Democratic Party hat. Blue Dogs are a good example of this unprincipled approach. Is there is single definition that Obama can enunciate ties these factions in the big tents.

Blue Dog modifications to HCR bill are a big sham, e.g., the clause where the Bill promises that PO will NOT use medicare schedules. Clearly a sell out to Insurance Cartel. If the Dems in Congress go back to their constituents with Bills badly compromised thanks to Bachus/Conrad in Senate and the House Blue Dogs, they will fumble when questions highlighting these differences come up. Mere slogans will only serve to discredit the Party.
