Seriously. The liberal "sacred cow" will only cover a tiny percentage of Americans, and isn't necessary to get the rest of the reforms through and arrest the skyrocketing costs of health care that threaten to bankrupt the country. There's a lot of good in this bill. Ditch the public option (maybe strengthening other things in the process, like the subsidies for low-income people and the excise tax on "cadillac" plans), tell Lieberman, Lincoln, et al to shut up and vote for cloture, and let's move on to climate change.
