Verum Serum wants to know, “Will Obama Really Sellout Liberals and Drop the Public Option?” Off-the-record pushback to the contrary, probably: when it’s been suddenly made clear that your job is to actually convince the American public that the current plan is better than no plan at all, no individual part of a plan is non-negotiable. The real question is what progressives will do about said sellout. I predict ‘nothing,’ past the usual whining. They never do.
And I look forward to writing another post like this when we push the administration into endorsing meaningful tort reform. Which, as I have noted earlier, is not negotiable.
