Health Care Reform: With friends like this...

Rep. Lynn Woolsey of California wrote an op-ed in Roll Call Monday pandering to liberals about her commitment to a public option.  It comes on the heels of her public announcement that she will break every single pledge she’s ever made to vote against a health care bill without a public option. (Woolsey is co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. In addition to abandoning her promise to support affordable, universal health care, she has endorsed Rep. Jane Harman, the leading Democratic proponent of the security state in the House of Representatives, over her liberal anti-war challenger Marcy Winograd, further evidence that progressives must build alternatives, including third party and independent candidacies, to their codependent relationship with the Democrats.)
