sadly, I agree

"This bill appears to be legislation that the president wanted in the first place." - Russ Feingold

from digby

"One can only speculate about what might have happened if they had gamed this out a little bit differently. Maybe it wouldn't have made any difference. But the fact remains that Obama last made a speech about health care last September (in which he inexplicably put a 900 billion dollar cap on the legislation) and there's been nothing but mild admonitions to "work it out" ever since then. He simply did not show leadership on the issue. And now his own ratings are suffering because of the mess. If Greenwald is right when he says that the White House achieved the plan they always wanted, then it came at a very high price."
