Yes, Howard, Kill The Bill

Howard Dean, former Chairman of the Democratic Party, has urged Senate Democrats to "kill the bill." He is, of course, speaking of the Obamacare Bill that is frantically seeking to nail down 60 Senate votes for cloture to push the legislation toward enactment.

Dean is miffed that the "Public Option" has disappeared from the bill. The "Public Option" is just the quickest way to get nationalized health care. The bill, even without the public option, promises nationalized health care anyway. So, Dean should not worry. It's simply a matter of time.

It will be interesting to see if any on the left desert Obamacare at this late stage. The Senate Bill is so terrible it is unlikely that there will be any defections from the left.

The best hope to kill this horrible piece of legislation will be in the House of Representatives in January, when everyone is running for election. The public hates Obamacare and the House Democrats know it.
