Health in a Handcart

Between Republican ignorance and Democratic indolence, the health care debacle over the course of the past summer has really been excruciating to watch. President Obama is all set to deliver a big "muster the troops" speech in front of congress tomorrow, ostensibly to get the reform train back on the rails and into the station, but all signs seem to be point towards the same moneyed/corporate interests that have gummed up the works in the past working their mojo to ensure -- once more -- that nothing substantive gets done. How utterly expected. But hell, don't take my word for it. Click over and read Matt Taibbi's exhaustive analysis of the situation...and prepare to be depressed.
