All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

The Truth about the Failure of Healthcare

Democratic allies in the mainstream media are still trying to blame the failure of healthcare on the Republicans by saying the bill failed because the Democrats lost their filibuster proof majority in the Senate. ( That is a lie and the article states it twice. Healthcare failed because it is a bad bill. It's so bad that even people who believe in the concept could not support the bill. The President's upcoming event is just a charade designed to portray the Republicans as obstructionists or get them to share the blame by incorporating some of their signature causes concerning cross-border sales, tort reform, etc. The truth is the current bill is dead. It will never see the light of day in its current form and it's very unlikely the President can fool anyone anymore.
