I wonder which America-hating socialist said this:

“The full consequences of a default — or even the serious prospect of default — by the United States are impossible to predict and awesome to contemplate. Denigration of the full faith and credit of the United States would have substantial effects on the domestic financial markets and the value of the dollar.”

Further proof he could never be elected in the modern Republican party.

… and we have to work for what we want.  If you want health care reform to pass, call your rep and your senators and tell them so.

That’s the message to congressional Democrats.  If you want health reform to pass, call your representative.  If they are in favor of passing it, give ’em props.  If they’re not, tell them why they should and remind them you’re paying attention.  This is how democracy by the people works–by you and me getting involved.   Pass the damn bill.  And pass this information on.

So Scott Brown’s win Tuesday night in a Massachusetts  special election to fill Ted Kennedy’s seat means democrats have lost their super-majority in the senate and health care reform’s future is uncertain.  If that isn’t annoying enough, we could be watching the democrats absolutely fold to the republicans–you know, the ones with no ideas to fix anything but maintain a laser-like focus on dragging their feet, saying no and being, in general, complete asshats.  House Democrats have the power to fix this.  They can pass the bill without changes meaning the sixty votes it got in the senate right after Christmas still stands.  The bill goes to Obama.  It gets signed.  And then they can start fighting about bank regulation and cap and trade.  Hooray.

Other thoughts here and here and here.

How to put pressure on congressional Democrats here.
