Greeny Greenwaldo the Sock Puppet says: Glenn Greenwald / Salon: White House as helpless victim on health care
[...] As was painfully predictable all along, the final bill will not have any form of public option, nor will it include the wildly popular expansion of Medicare coverage. Obama supporters are eager to depict the White House as nothing more than a helpless victim in all of this -- the President so deeply wanted a more progressive bill but was sadly thwarted in his noble efforts by those inhumane, corrupt Congressional "centrists." Right. The evidence was overwhelming from the start that the White House was not only indifferent, but opposed, to the provisions most important to progressives. The administration is getting the bill which they, more or less, wanted from the start -- the one that is a huge boon to the health insurance and pharmaceutical industry. [...]
AWWWWWWWWWWW! Geewizawillikers! No Public Option. No Medicare Buy-in or Buy-out. Oh, DARN! I have been saying this all along as well. All they wanted to do was make an in-road campaign for a Putrid Option next time. There is no talk about the Constitutional aspects of this retarded federal health care debacle that shouldn't even be in the US Congress. So, shut up Mr Sock Puppet.
