It is pretty sad that Fareed Zakaria is the voice of reason in this conversation. Let me try and explain this to you Mr. Maher. This is a center right country, we don't like the government intruding into our lives. The health care law is an intrusion into our lives. It forces us to buy services that we may not need. The government is now making the decision on what type of policy that you have. This is especially galling to people who buy insurance for themselves.
The reason that many of the bluedogs lost is because they did the opposite of what they originally campaigned on. They were elected to be fiscally responsible and once in office did the opposite. That is why they were given the boot, not because there is no public option. Had there been a public option, the losses would have been even greater.
Is that clear enough for you, Bill?
