Beatings of a rhetorical sort, of course
Senator Olympia Snowe all but admitted that a Trigger on a Public Option is total bull yesterday. She basically proved that she is NOT bargaining in good faith, and that if there were any illusions that the trigger she supports is designed to never be pulled, they are totally gone now. How do we know this?
Because Sen. Snowe VOTED AGAINST a Public Option twice.
This proves (HELLO! ARE YOU FRAKKING LISTENING DEMOCRATIC POLITICIANS?) that Sen. Snowe WILL NOT vote for an actual Public Option, just the idea of one, or rather, the idea of the idea of one.
And why? What is Olympia Snowe, the Republican Party, the Insurance Lobbyists and at least 5 DINO Republocrat Senators afraid of?
This quote from yesterday’s Senate Finance Committee hearing sums it up best. . .
“What are we afraid of? That Americans might actually like it?”
~ Senator John Kerry (D-MA)
Yes. That is EXACTLY what they are afraid of.
More and a call to action below the fold.
