Hi Hippies

It was fine to argue that a public option couldn't get through Congress and fine to argue that Obamacare would be a foot-in-the-door type improvement (true, but I don't think as much as has been claimed) that would inevitably be fixed later (might depend on the meaning of the word "fixed"). But as is often the case, it was also fun to bash hippies who said that a public option was going to be necessary to make it work as sustainable policy and politics (also, too, cheaper). Guess those silly hippies were right again.
