Difficult news tonight

Well, I'm sad to say that the public option was shot down in the Senate Finance Commitee.

Also Dan Rather's lawsuit against CBS was dismissed in its entirety.

Both are quite discouraging.


  1. I agree. I was very disappointed. I am hoping there is still a chance the legislation might be passed with a "public option trigger" written into it.

    Myself as well. There were Democrats as well as Olympia Snowe who objected.

    I am sick about the defeat of the public option....what is wrong with people who paint a Hitler mustache on our president who is trying to get health care for everyone?...It is completely confounding to me.
