On healthcare, the Democrats suggest a new treatment





After a day-long White House summit on healthcare, Republicans returning to the Senate said that President Obama and the Democrats appear ready to go it alone on this issue.

“They’re not interested in putting a 2,700-page bill on the shelf,” said Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, referring to GOP demands that the president start over with a step-by-step approach, focusing on issues on which there is broad agreement.

At the end of the summit, Mr. Obama said, “I did not propose something complicated just for the sake of being complicated.” He added, “The reason we didn’t do it is it turns out baby steps don’t get you to the place where people need to go.”

In other words, even though polls indicate widespread disapproval of Obamacare, and opposition to using reconciliation, the opinion of the people doesn't mean a hell of a lot right now. The president and his friends have decided that we have to get "to the place where people need to go," whether the people want to go there or not. I'm afraid the place that "people need to go" features a lot of banjo music.

Luckily I've already seen the movie.

I haven't heard anything in my media about widespread disapproval in the polls. Plenty are unhappy about the misogynist stuff in the bill, but most people are worried that it won't be passed at all. I'm sure you are right, however, according to right-wing media.

This is a really sad statement on media in the 21st century, honestly.

That's what we're here for, Amanda!

Well, yes and no. In some respects, we're moving more toward a European model. I've been reading a lot of the British newspapers lately because of my interest in the AGW issue, and it's interesting to see how the different ways in which, say, the Telegraph and the Guardian cover the same news. They don't try to hide their partisanship under a false veneer of objectivity, like so many outlets in the U.S. do.

By the way, I hope you're feeling better -- I was on your blog today and it sounds like you have your hands full in a lot of ways right now.
