AMA Pans ObamaCare; Dems Freak Out | Main | "Obama Really Isn't That Funny"

More Democratic Mutiny

This really could be an update to the post I just put up, but it's too good not to have its own post. Democrats who question Dear Leader's healthcare overhaul? "Sellouts."

When Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) called the public plan a deal breaker, a progressive group co-founded by Joe Trippi launched a campaign in Nebraska accusing the senator of being a "sellout" for special interests.

After a strategy memo by the centrist Democratic think tank Third Way cautioned Democrats on overreaching on a public plan, Daily Kos bloggers went on the attack, and Third Way now faces a coordinated effort to pressure Third Way donors.

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) is the next target. On Tuesday, she said she opposed the public plan. By Wednesday, the liberal Health Care for America Now was drawing up a plan to change her mind.

Delicious betrayal and accusation, though it's taking me away from an important point. Even if Democrats were correct about the bill and its "efficiency" there still isn't a way to pay for it. Obama knows he's running out of time because people are on to him. His PAYGO proposal this week is supposed to be cover to finish the healthcare and cap-and-tax laws before his support crumbles. In other words, there's a ticking clock. If we can hold him off for just a while, he'll slink back to the White House in defeat.

Hey, Republicans in Congress, how about a little backbone?
