Commentary: Dems must fix health care alone
Early on as New York mayor, Ed Koch went to battle against entrenched interests that were bankrupting the city. The yelling and screaming was such that reporters asked him whether he was interested in having a second term. Koch responded that he didn't care about a second term, which was why he was going to have one. And he did.
Democrats should remember that as they go it alone on health care reform. It should be obvious by now that Republicans are bent on sabotage.
