The Senate Healthcare Bill Is JUST LIKE Social Security!

February 1st, 2010at 07:21am Posted by Eli

Bruce Schulman explains that Social Security was actually deeply compromised from FDR’s original vision, just like healthcare reform today, and that’s why the House should pass the Senate bill and worry about fixing it later.  That seems reasonable – after all, the Democrats were able to improve Social Security despite losing big in the next election because everyone hated it.  Oh wait.

Oh, and let’s not forget how expanding Social Security to cover farmers, domestic workers and small companies didn’t threaten powerful corporate interests in any way, just like the public option in healthcare reform.  Yes, I’m sure fixing it later will be a piece of cake, especially with the strong, competent leadership of Barack Obama and Harry Reid.
