Reform, how I miss thee...

President Obama:

What you just did to healthcare reform (or is it "health insurance reform?" why Presidents generally don't try to go big in their first year. If you were planning to fold on the public option the whole time why weaken the rest of your term by showing your cards so early? Do six conservative Blue Dogs really have the power to stop real change, change that you promised? Or were you really in the pockets of the insurance lobby the whole time. OR is this some grand scheme to make us fight harder, to get us to make you do it? Does it really take an angry mob on the lawn to get anything done to that is decent for our fellow humans? Well that's what you're about to get. I hope it's what you wanted.

Respectfully yours,
