The Berkeley policy analyst has an axiomatic commitment to logical incrementalism: pass inadequate legislation now to set us on the road to a series of improvements down the road. It's like the conservative version of wedge politics. This process is coming to an end and has in part led us to this denouement of despair.

There's a lot wrong and a little right with this health care legislation, but given our ecological problems, peak oil prime among them at present, and the "Bad Money" problems, the health system -like the entire society as Dave illustrates daily- is unsustainable. The cardinal rule of Obama is that no players in the health racket lose -except the public. He's kept us on the path to collapse with a seamless transition from GWB.
