Democrats settle into the job they know best
Dems never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity (see, e.g., healthcare).
Rethugs never miss an opportunity to bully Dems into missing an opportunity.
And the circle of life goes merily along…
UPDATE: Apology to House Dems:
While the Senate has cowered from the debate over a public option in the face of Republican and conservative Democratic opposition, Rangel said he relishes the battle.
“I’m anxious to take on those people who oppose a public option,” he said. He’ll have public opinion on his side. A recent poll showed 3 out of 4 people want a public plan as part of health care reform. “We’ve got the momentum.”
