With all due respect to the progressives here, as an independent this is a pretty good example of why that assh*le lost my vote for good. Indies like me supported the public option, or at least some change that doesn’t benefit those directly opposed to it. This is not it.
To be honest, Oblahma did us a favor. He brought us to our senses and reminded us why most of us utterly hate the DemoRAT party. The Republicans’ bigotry and loopiness is grating and tiresome, but in the end mostly sad ignorance. The mendacious, loathsome DemoRATS prove time and time and time again that they prefer only ideology, policy, and political “victories” that leave you further and further dependent on them, and them alone.
