Do it for Ted
The news is telling me Ted Kennedy just died. He spent his whole career trying to get some kind of universal health coverage enacted. The thing that kept him going for the last year was his wish to get it done before he died. He would have too, except that Baucus, Nelson, and the blue dogs thought it was necessary to go slow and appease Grassley and the medical/insurance industry. Maybe we can use Ted's death to shame them into acting like Democrats. I'm sure he would have approved.
