I Guess The Joker Was Right

about the Democratic Party.

"You see, th
eir morals, their code, it's a bad joke. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these... these civilized people, they'll eat each other."

Evidently saving 18,000 to 47,0000 people this year by
reforming health care was not enough of a potential reelection boost for Democrats this year. Oh well maybe in 15 more years (after ~half a million more unneccesary deaths) we can try again.

Democrats are doomed

They all backed out. They said HCR was a done deal, was going to happen, and they chickened out right at the finish line.

This is the end of the Democratic majority. This is the end of health care reform. Obama will be a 1 term president. And so many people who were hopeful that thinks could actually change for the better will give up for good.

Time to stop hoping, and start hoarding.

Proof That We Are Entering The Weimar Republic Phase

The fact that one of the "bluest" states in the US would let Ted Kennedy's seat be turned over to a Republican speaks volumes on the state of our nation. This same Republican has vowed to fight the very thing that Kennedy has spent his time in the Senate fighting for. Furthermore, he promises to help thwart any progress in legislation at a time when so much needs to be done to help the US from falling into 3rd world status. The very fact that his additional vote for the minority party at all (41 to 59 as opposed to 40-60) is substantial enough to bring the Washington legislative process to a screeching halt shows how broken the system has become. Not 5 years ago, the Republican party was able to force through votes with "only" 55 seats by "nuclear option" threats and reconcilliation process.

Coakley loses + wavering house Dems kill HCR + no legislative progress in 2010 = loss of Dem majorities in house and Senate.

Probably forever.

Voters want a party in power that legislates, that actually does things. Even bad legislation passing shows that the party in power is able to wield power effectively.
