News today that Harry Reid has stated publicly that he will support a public option health care reform, through reconciliation.
This will be amazing if it turns out to be true, but unfortunately we have all become familiar in recent months with just how little Harry Reid's support amounts to.
On the other hand, there seems to be a growing willingness among Democratic Senators to do just that. Leaving aside, for a moment, the fact that it is about time that the United States joins the entire rest of the industrialized world in striking a fair balance between corporate profits and the health of its populace, it sure would be a wonderful thing to see the looks on Republicans' faces when it dawned on them that they could have had a far weaker law, if they had just stopped being such intransigent dicks, and took the Senate bill that was passed last fall.
Too good to be true, probably. Green Eagle is such a dreamer.
