More Vitriol From Team Obama
This time from David Axelrod:
“To defeat a bill that will bend the curve on this inexorable rise in health-care costs is insane,” Axelrod said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” "I don’t think that you want this moment to pass. It will not come back."
Leaving aside the new fighting spirit out of the White House (apparently even the docile Obama likes punching DFHs), Axelrod's comment makes no sense. This bill's selling point to progressives is its cost cutting features? Really? Forget for a moment that Axelrod is FOS on the "cost cutting," I thought the more effective pitch was the provision of health insurance to the less well off. Moreover, if this is THE moment, as Axelrod states, this argues for fighting for more now, not accepting the lousy bill you have. The once vaunted No Drama Obama Team is really off its feed these days.
Speaking for me only
