Let’s start over.

Morgan Clendaniel makes a lot of sense.  Enough incremental garbage.  One way or the other, do something that is going to have an impact:

So, we need to forget free-market solutions, forget the public option. Enough marginal change. If someone is sick, they should get treated. Let’s accept that as our starting point and then figure out how to pay for it.

This is, of course, totally naive and politically nonviable. It also happens to be the right thing to do, and I’m confident that with enough smart people in the room, we could find a way to treat everyone. It’s really hard to argue that because something is too difficult to implement, we have to let people die, but that seems to be the point to which we’ve gotten ourselves.
