AWESOME! If only every Congressman could be Barney Frank!

This is exactly what should have been happening from go. These morons and their little teabagger movement never should have been allowed to build any traction. They should have been slapped down as soon as their irrational crap turned to Nazi.

And more good news...

Given hardening Republican opposition to Congressional health care proposals, Democrats now say they see little chance of the minority’s cooperation in approving any overhaul, and are increasingly focused on drawing support for a final plan from within their own ranks.

Top Democrats said Tuesday that their go-it-alone view was being shaped by what they saw as Republicans’ purposely strident tone against health care legislation during this month’s Congressional recess, as well as remarks by leading Republicans that current proposals were flawed beyond repair.

Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff, said the heated opposition was evidence that Republicans had made a political calculation to draw a line against any health care changes, the latest in a string of major administration proposals that Republicans have opposed.

“The Republican leadership,” Mr. Emanuel said, “has made a strategic decision that defeating President Obama’s health care proposal is more important for their political goals than solving the health insurance problems that Americans face every day.”

Will this resurrect the public option? We can but hope. Still, this is a good sign that Democrats are not going to be held up by Republicans who care more about politics than their country and it's citizens.
