Corrente meme shows up in the most unlikely place
Yes, Booman is using the Zombie Public Option meme. But he is wrong about Ezra:
Resuscitating the most controversial element of the bill and running it through reconciliation looks less like reaching out and more like delivering a hard left cross to the opposition.
With whom is the public option controversial? Polls show that the American people support a public option (of course that is because they have not twigged on the fact that it is an empty advertising slogan). A real public option, of the kind Hacker originally proposed would be hugely popular. It is only unpopular with AHIP, the institutional investors in insurance parasites, news organizations that are owned by insurance parasites, and politicians who take money from insurance parasites and their investors.
It is truly sickening the way the American people have been totally sidelined in the health care debate and access bloggers have played a shameful role in that.
