which probably ain’t gonna happen, so we need a public option.

I realize this may be news to many of the 556 members of the House and Senate receiving government-provided health care, but here in this place called “Reality” we’re in the middle of a crisis that has been building for years, and which just got worse as GM moved into bankruptcy, shedding thousand of jobs, including the “termination of health benefits and jeopardiz[ing] retirement benefits for current and former employees and their families.” We have millions without care, and a lot more who are routinely denied coverage by an industry that puts profits over the people it’s supposed to serve. And now you guys are signaling that maybe we won’t get a public option after all? You have to be shittin’ me.
