Not The End, Just The Beginning

19 03 2010

One thing that the Firebaggers don’t seem to get is that this isn’t the end of HCR. It is just the beginning. Programs like this don’t get less progressive because people, you know, like them and want more of the good stuff. That is why the GOP is having their grand flip out and why the talk about repeal is so fucking silly. And they know it.

In an interview with Mother Jones, Lynch said Obama told him he can’t put progressive provisions, like a public option, into health care reform this year. But next year may be a different story.

“He said we can’t do it this year, but next year he’d be willing to consider inserting a public option,” Lynch said.

Now, there might not be the stomach to go after the public option fight next year, but it will happen at some point.
