Memeorandum: Carrie Budoff Brown at the Politico: Defections have Dems ISO Plan B. Nice. ReidCo bombs out so now the ENTIRE DNC uper echelon are on Plan B. Plan B? Isn't it more like Plan Z?
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s appeals for party unity landed with a thud Tuesday with the very group he needs for his public-option push to pay off: centrists who hold the key to health reform.

Lieberman’s comments dealt a major setback to Reid’s push to pass a bill with a public insurance option, so much so that other Senate Democrats — notably Delaware Sen.

Bayh also warned that excessive fees and fiscal irresponsibility would doom his vote for either: [...]
Yeah, but, Pelosi and Reid said that there wouldn't be ANY taxes or fees (which are taxes), right? Right.
Well? Looks like the cry-babies are here.
“It’s a fight between the left and the far left.”
[...] This would be funny if it wasn’t so sad. We have radicals in charge of every branch of government and all we can do is mock them as they continue to ram their socialist legislation down our collective throat. [...]
Yeah, well, we ain't done yet, are we?
