By Jove, I Think They Have It!The GOP opened "summit-o-health" with THE RIGHT STUFF!
After all, they have 48% of the population in their corner on this one. The new report, giving them that number just came out today! How wonderful. Now The One is in an even-bigger hole from which he must try to climb.
His words no longer make young girls swoon, and his oratory will only go so far. The time for BIG GOVERNMENT expansion is NOT NOW! No matter the cause, no matter the need.
1st it is JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!!!!
Then, when we are back somewhere around 5% unemployment, The One will find consideration of healthcare a much more attractive item....BUT, probably not in the BIG GOVERNMENT form where it now lives.
Reason will prevail....but the dithering DEMs will also pay a premium this November. That premium will occur no matter what. The only thing to be determined is how BIG that premium will be.
