Rep. Murtha: No healthcare reform this time

Well, its official. Democratic Congressman John Murtha believes that we will not pass healthcare reform this year. This basically translates into not ever passing it. We certainly cant pass it in 2010 during the red hot election season and will not be able to pass anything after the 2010 elections which is almost certain to shift Congress a good few more steps to the right.
This is a sad day for healthcare reform and for the Democratic party. The party has promised time and time again that they would pass healthcare reform and they have given us nothing but failure. With Obama's approval ratings headed down into the 40's, the 2010 elections look like a trainwreck for Democrats. The one thing that could have saved us is healthcare reform and now it looks almost certain as if it wont happen.
We better hope the economy makes a huge surge in the next few months or the House will be lost in 2010, as even many Democrats are privately admitting. Thanks Democrats. You deserve everything that is coming at you. I am not enjoying this rerun of 1993-1994 one bit.
