did you feel that shudder just now? that was the tide going out and the hull settling down on a sand bar.http://thehill.com/leading-the-news/baucus-takes-ax-to-600b-gop-derides-reform-joke-2009-06-17.html

what was the cause?

max’s ship appears to have a faulty GPS system borrowed from the republicans and the health insurance industry….. 

the cost of doing a half-assed job of reform is too high…http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601103&sid=aRIUTvoOGOxE 

 meanwhile the tide of public opinion has gone out, leaving max and the committee stranded. those of us who counted on some good things happening regarding health care this year aren’t too excited to help push it out to sea again until we get a competent crew…

will the tide come in high enough to float the S.S. Health Care Reform again? possibly, but only if congress considers single payer or a damn strong publicly funded policy….without it, there is no tide and it won’t float. because that is what the public wants.
