At some point, these folks are going to learn that no matter what happens, the Republicans are not going to vote for ANYTHING. As soon as they kill off the public option, they will pick off co-ops. Think I’m kidding? They managed to convince people that voluntarily talks with your doctor about a living will was a death panel killing grandma.
They are going to do everything they can to kill health care, because they know that if reform succeeds they will be out of office for generations. Figure it out, blue dogs.

And right on cue, Freedomworks alum Pete Suderman advances the ball using Sully’s blog, linking to the American Spectator explaining that even if co-ops aren’t the public option, they’re still socialism. And remember, McMegan is on record against any health care reform, no matter what.
