It’s disgusting watching these liberals bemoan the loss of one Senate seat. They act like it is the end of the world. They won’t be able to get through there precious socialized medicine. For Pete’s sake they had a super majority for a year. Don’t blame Republicans that you didn’t get your wildly unpopular bill in all its grandeur.
It was a pretty good deal for the libs. First they got a 1.2 trillion dollars in giveaways for their constituents. Most of which have gone to blue states. Since they haven’t spent all the TARP money they see that as another 400 billion dollars of “free money”. They are working overtime trying to figure out what to do with that.
Some of us still remember when a billion dollars was a lot of money.
I’m sure right now they are evaluating the bill to find, not the pieces will do the most good, but the pieces that will lay the foundation for “Great Society II”. For no money they could allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines. But they will go for expanding Medicare to a wider demographic. It will be about getting the governments foot in the door in as many new places as possible.
