I Told You So
In a January 24th commentary called The Healthcare Trap I warned Republicans to be on the lookout for attempts by the Democrats and the President to co-opt them on Healthcare. And as usual, Obama doesn't disappoint. On Super Bowl Sunday he announced plans to televise a bi-partisan meeting on healthcare February 25th. His goal is to try and embarrass the Republicans into accepting a building block of nationalized healthcare and giving as little as possible in return. As I indicated in the earlier column the Democrats and their progressive allies will not stop until they are convinced Single Payer can never pass.
