Dare We Hope?

The word on the public option, aka Medicare Part E, sounded promising today, listening to Keith Olbermann and his guests. He and the congressman he had one were optimistic.

It's hard to follow all the excruciating details on this thing. Personally I don't see what the hold up is. But hey, of course we know some of our beloved Congressmen (and women) are in the pockets of the big interests.

Still, maybe enough public support, anywhere from 56% to 71%, ought to hold some sway. I'd love to hold these guys' feet to the fire somehow. But what can we do?

We're hoping things work out for the best. It's a drag having a government that is so tone deaf. But this is what we have to work with now. Hopefully someday we can throw some of the scoundrels out and get someone more responsive to the people.
