Thank You, Howard Dean

The BYAAAAAAAAH is wise. Believe in the BYAAAAAAAAH, for he knows what he is talking about. Here he is on Rachel Maddow, talking about the Baucus bill.

You know, this is going to be a hell of an issue in 2010 cause honestly, what’s the point of having a 60 vote majority in the United States Senate, if you can’t produce…health care reform. You can get health insurance reform. This bill is going to cost us a lot of money and it isn’t going to do anything, if this so-called compromise is true. This compromise does nothing, except it will reform insurance. That’s a good thing to do, but they ought to strip the money out of it cause we reformed insurance like this in Vermont 15 years ago. It’s a fine thing to do, but it doesn’t insure more people.
You know, we need to be hearing a lot more from Dr. Howard Dean on health care here. He's a doctor, he understands the consequences of what this will mean for people from an executive branch standpoint, and most of all he understands that the American people are going to pillage the Democrats if they foul up health care again. Nearly everyone who will be voting in 2010 remembers 1993. I don't know why the Democrats in Congress don't, particularly the ones that were around back then.

This guy, he gets it. He always has gotten it. He worked hard in 2008 to get Democrats into this position as party chair, and he's watching them toss his advice -- the advice that got the Democrats such a huge margin in Congress -- out the window in order to appease the Villagers and the lobbyists.

Those aren't the people that put you in Congress, guys. It's the voters.

More BYAAAAAAAAH please. Thank you.

[UPDATE 5:14 PM] BYAAAAAAAAH is in for Olbermann tonight. Neat.

If the Democrats do not pass real healthcare reform as Dean defines it they will be slaughtered in 2010. It would not surprise me if the substantial margins they hold now return to the margins they held after 2006. It won't be because they are "too liberal" it will be because they are a bunch of cowards and deserve to lose. If we want a Republican bill then why not let the Republicans just run the goddamned place?

BTW that letter to the editor reference health care reform I told you about the other day? Mine will be published either tomorrow or Thursday according to the editor I spoke to this morning.

Good to hear. More people need to do that. 2006 was end the war, 2008 was get us health care reform and fix this Bush crap. They blew 2006, but the promise of 2008 kept them in the game.

2010 will be a disaster unless they get something, and I still believe that if Obama is backed into a corner on this, old Campaign Obama is going to emerge and really start kicking some ass.

He's going to start having to do that to his own party however.
