Stop being a pussy and just make it happen

Sen. Kent Conrad told Fox News' Chris Wallace that there are not enough votes in the Senate to pass a public option for health insurance. "The fact of the matter is there are not the votes in the United States Senate for a public option. There never have been," said Conrad.

Conrad is one of six Senators attempting to negotiate a bipartisan health care bill.

Well, if you would stop negotiating with those who will not negotiate in good faith but only want to obstruct... we might have enough votes for a bill. Get off the fucking fence, Conrad, and do your job, which is serving the American people, not the GOP's tender sensibilities (hint, they have none, they just whine as a manipulative tool) and not the insurance and pharma crowd. Because if the public option dies, you'll have helped kill it. Asshat.

These guys drive me crazy! The majority of the nation said "F**k the Republicans!" in November last year. Congress should be strong enough to say the same thing; that's why they were elected to that office. The Republicans' opinions are no valid anyway.
