What Are We Gonna Do?

The whole world is watching us in disbelief. Our irrational behavior, only exceeded by the disingenuous demagoguery used to justify it, is past the point of reasonable patience.

Pass healthcare, with a public option. Pass it now. If you want to continue campaigning instead of governing, quit and let someone with public interest in mind take over. Ironically, passing healthcare hinges on politicians in the Democratic caucus trusting each other. They now have to deal with the dilemma of disingenuous demagoguery.

The arbitrary, fabricated arguments that made headlines and occupied the precious time we allotted to crafting solutions for our serious social and financial problems are the tar baby we must extricate ourselves from to take a turn that makes sense. We are our own worst enemy and it isn’t easy abandoning old, extreme positions.

We live in a world where media focus is continuously on controversy, chaos & campaigning instead of solutions, rational behavior & governance. It’s time to stop the death spiral and do the right thing.

Pass healthcare, with a public option. Pass it now.
