Letter to the Editor
With the Democrats in the Senate dropping the public option for health insurance it’s clear that Democrats are afraid of the Republicans. The are compromising trying to get Republican votes that they don’t need and votes they aren’t really going to get. No Republican is going to vote to reform health care no matter how much the Democrats cave in.
The Democrats have the votes and they should just pretend the Republicans don’t exists and do the right thing. But it looks like 1994 all over again where the Dems caved in and it cost them the election. I was hoping they learned something but apparently they haven’t. They are afraid of a party that has no power. Perhaps it’s time for Obama to show some leadership and get the Democrats in line.
