I came across this astute comment this morning after reading Paul Krugman’s Op-Ed, Health Care Reform Lives!
“Reality Based” from Flyover Country
America had a sixty vote Democratic Senate majority for only about sixty days early in the Obama administration. It was never veto-proof because one of them was one Joseph Lieberman, who opposed any universal system, as did every Republican.
It is the height of foolishness that many “progressives” are still blaming Obama for the lack of a universal system. And electing Bernie Sanders without a Democratic, veto-proof Congress will accomplish exactly nothing. A Democratic congress is virtually impossible due to the Republican gerrymandered congressional districts. They have replaced the power of the ballot with the power of money. Thank you, Republican Supreme Court.
Thank you “Reality Based” from “Flyover Country”.
