Yep we supported you but dude you lost us. Ed Liddy, AIG Bonuses, that lying sack of shit Tim Geithner and the retreads like Laurence Summers guaranteed it. How ironic that it is Ted Kennedy’s old senate seat that will derail health care reform. Meantime if Mr Prez wants to find out what he can do to get things back on track he need look no further than the bluedogs in his own party.
But some in the party warned that the Democratic Congress was on the brink of a mistake that could cost lawmakers dearly.
Representative Gene Taylor, a conservative Mississippi Democrat and opponent of the health plan, said its nearly $1 trillion cost and the lack of widespread public enthusiasm for it adds up to a political miscalculation.
“Why in the heck are we spending that amount of money for something the American people don’t want?” asked Mr. Taylor, who said the Democratic situation reminded him of the climate before the Republican takeover of the House in 1994. “I was here for 1994, and I know what ugly looks like.”
Barack Obama forgot who elected him.
