Ah, the glory of "progressive" governance and democratic consent.

S. Lindsey's picture

"The President's Proposal," as the 11-page White House document is headlined, is in one sense a notable achievement: It manages to take the worst of both the House and Senate bills and combine them into something more destructive. It includes more taxes, more subsidies and even less cost control than the Senate bill. And it purports to fix the special-interest favors in the Senate bill not by eliminating them—but by expanding them to everyone."

It's called the Overton Window.

Simply put you take two extremes then show how moderate you are by sliding the window towards what you really want..

Obama knows his version of Healthcare is going to fail but they will move towards a Center/Left cobbled together bill that they think Americans will swallow.

We will have to continue to watch these progressives as they continue to slide it in slowly and hope we don't notice.

But notice we will.
