People keep asking. I keep saying no. But that isn’t stopping any of you.
I am not a politician. I am not an advocate. I am never going to tell you to support or oppose a candidate, nor will I ever tell you to support or oppose any legislation. That hasn’t changed.
However, I will say this. If you supported health care reform last week, I do have trouble understanding you if you think it should be killed this week. The only thing that has changed is that a very weak public option has dropped. That changes the bill very little overall.
Some have always opposed the bill because it’s not single payer. I understand why they still do.
Others have always opposed it because they dislike any expansion of regulation or government involvement. I understand why they still do.
But I am a bit mystified by those who loved the Senate Bill last week this week think it is more harmful than helpful. Sorry, but that’s hard to rationalize.
