The Public Option Is Off The Table?

This brings to mind three quotes:
Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard. --Mencken

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. --Benjamin Franklin

Democracy is a device that ensures we shall be governed no better than we deserve. --George Bernard Shaw
Well, you asked for the status quo, now you're going to get the status quo --the 37th best healthcare system in the world.


People are crazy.
