The Daily Quote

“One of the silliest Republican talking points is that Democrats are ‘ramming health-care reform down the throats of the American people.’ In fact, we've been talking about it, on and off, for decades, ultimately winding up with a solution that is not only remarkably centrist but also not all that different from the compromise nearly reached between Ted Kennedy and the Nixon White House in the early 1970s.”
