Massachusetts to the rescue | January 19, 2010

Finally some sanity in the healthcare fiasco.  The people of Massachusetts have injected a dose of reality into the democratic party.  Whether or not the Anti Obamacare candidate is elected the message is loud and clear.  Slow down.  Healthcare reform is what the american people desired not the total takeover now being crammed  down their    throats                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                President   Obama’s ineptitude a s a legislator and his complete lack of any executive experience now threatens his political party’s grip on power.  He actually believed that something as complex and entwined as a government takeover of our healthcare system could be worked out, written, and passed by the congress in a matter of weeks.  From his viewpoint, why not.  The makers and shakers in congress have always done the hard stuff, like working out all the details, all he had to do is agree or disagree. Although sometimes that was hard too, witness all the present votes on his record.                                                                                                                                          All of this is becoming clear to those charged with the continuance of a relevant democratic party.  Howard Dean explained on CNBC that had  congress passed a simple expansion of Medicare to lower the eligibility age it would have gone through with relative ease.  Well Mr. Dean when you are right you’re right.                                                                                                                                                                                                          So where do we go from here?  How about starting over and following Howard Dean’s advice.  That would be a realistic step toward insuring a large and growing number of uninsured. Allow the economy to absorb this expansion and recover a little and maybe in the future address another segment of the uninsured.  If  Howard Dean and I can agree on something  doesn’t widespread support  surely have  fail to follow?    🙂

  1. As a a follow up it would appear Mr. Dean came to his “senses” and now thinks the best stratedgy for the Dems to follow is to push for “the whole enchilada.” To be fair and proper that is my quote not his but it is a fair description of his and many other prominent dems position on the MASSECHUSETTS MASSACRE as of sometiome yesterday. Life goes on, good grief.
