If you want socialized churches, then you’ll support Zach Wamp’s earmark for a Big Government public option church on Fort Campbell. If you’re a conservative with any consistency, though, you’ll fight Wamp’s option to deprive the Fort Campbell community of church choice.
Why did Arkansas Senator Blanche Lincoln vote to kill Barack Obama’s health care reform centerpiece, the public option? The answer has a lot to do with her sources of campaign finance reform.
The 5 Democrats who defected to the Republican side to defeat Obama’s public option are: Max Baucus, Blanche Lincoln, Kent Conrad, Bill Nelson and Tom Carper.
When exactly does Max Baucus suggest additional health care legislation is going to take passed, if it can’t take place in a Senate with a veto-proof Democratic majority, less than a year after the landslide election of a popular Democratic President?
If you want to understand why meaningful health care reform has fallen apart, take a look at Obama’s inability to rally the Democrats in Congress in creating progressive change. It’s a problem that suggests there’s a lot more disappointment to come.
