I Guess I'm Just Hopelessly Naive

The President, a majority of Congress and a majority of the Senate all want a public option, or at least they all claim to want a public option. We, the people, want a public option. None of that seems to matter because a handful of Democratic senators, most from small states, have decided they are willing to let the entire bill go under if it is included. While there are many good things in the HCR package, without the public option, how will the insurance companies be kept honest? Because they say so?

Honest, honey, I'll pull out. You can trust me.
