Everyone should read Ezra Klein’s interview with Sen. Lindsay Graham. It’s good, and it should briefly give you hope that maybe there’s room for some kind of health care reform that actually makes sense and where bi-partisan compromise means “making the bill better” rather than simply making it less ambitious. Then read this retort at firedoglake, which will immediately deflate any optimism whatseover you may have gotten after reading the Graham interview. Seriously – was this guy even reading the same interview as me?
One additional thing: Although Graham gives a clear “Yes”to the question of whether he’d vote for Wyden-Bennett, he also gives Klein a legitimate source for the proposition that other co-sponsors of Wyden-Bennett would not vote for it.
