I hope so too, Feingold


An uncharacteristically long article in the Green Bay Press Gazette discusses the health care positions of Wisconsin lawmakers, including the predictable talking points from Rep. Paul Ryan, the GOP’s point man on preserving the status quo. I know that’s a corny thing that a press secretary would say, but I can’t think of a more accurate way to describe it. It’s good to see Feingold put the emphasis on the public option:

“I’m glad he laid out the need and value of a public option approach,” Feingold said. “I hope he doesn’t negotiate it away.”

Refreshing yet depressing to hear Feingold openly suggest that Obama may give away the public option in an attempt to pass something and save face politically.

Paul Soglin says it’s time to move on beyond consensus-seeking. The Republicans are not going to budge.
