Suicide Is Painless

Apparently Senate Democrats are determined to ensure an electoral bloodbath in November.  They’re finally talking about a budget reconciliation “sidecar” to fix the godawful bill the House is currently sitting on, but even though they only need 50 votes to pass it, they still don’t want to restore the public option or eliminate the excise tax – except for union workers, which will have the brilliant two-fer effect of making America hate Democrats and unions.

I seem to remember seeing some polling that Americans actually like the public option, and I also seem to remember a bunch of progressive Representatives promising not to vote for any bill that doesn’t have a public option.  Was I hallucinating all of that?  Was it all just some kind of fever dream?
