Why Progressives Are Batshit Crazy to Oppose the Senate Bill
I prolly wouldn't have worded it that way since many on the left who are calling for the Senate bill to be killed, I really respect (Markos, Hamsher, Sirota, Greenwald, Dean to name more than a few).
But I just don't see how we put ourselves in a BETTER position by killing it.
After reading tons of analysis on both sides, I do not see how we can realistically get more progressive legistlation by starting over.
There are a lot of people on the left who are making substantive arguments that even this flawed bill is better than doing nothing for millions of people.
And am I the only one that thinks that the in-fighting will only hurt the Democrats in 2010 and beyond? I really wish BOTH sides of this debate on the Left could stop making self-righteous arguments. It spoils the substantive policy discussion that needs to happen and can result in positive future goals. That is all.
