Media Matters reports today:
"Fox News continues to falsely claim Dems considering "changing the rules" to pass health care reform."
And so what? This may be just one more Fox news lie, but what if it were true?
Isn't it about time that someone changed the rules that have denied us the same kind of universal health care that the entire rest of the industrialized world has had for fifty years? Isn't it about time that someone changed the rules that allow the rich to win and the rest of us lose, over and over again? The rules that see that the government is right there to bail out any huge corporation that fails, no matter how responsible they are for their own problems, but don't do a thing for the millions of innocent Americans damaged by the criminality of the rich? The rules that make taxes on the rich a sin, but have nothing to say when we pick up the tab for their criminal misbehavior?
It's about time we had rules that worked for us, and if the Dems have to change the rules to get their agenda passed, more power to them.
