This just in from Robert Reich. Many of you have received this.
Hi. I’m Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor under President Clinton and currently a professor at the University of California.
You’ve probably heard about a possible “deal” in the Senate to do away with the public option.
I’m here to tell you that this is no deal: it’s a gift to Big Insurance, plain and simple.
To which Captain Renault of Casablanca would have retorted:
“I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!”
We have repeated the same so many times: the insurance racqueteers ultimately will not lose this great battle of wills. And the gang of 5 who are now trying to finalize your Christmas present … are not much better.
