I told you so on healthcare reform

Back during the 2008 campaign, I laughed at Hillary Clinton supporters who were pushing her healthcare reform plan. I said that healthcare reform was simply not possible and that they should simply find another issue to vote for Hillary Clinton.
In fact, I actually commended the Obama campaign for not offering anything on healthcare during the primaries, because I saw him as being a realist.
Unfortunately, I was right. Healthcare reform is NOT possible in this country. Anytime Democrats try to change the system, they will hit a brick wall.
President Obama was stupid even to bring up this issue. Now, that the genie is out of the bottle, he has to either put up or shut up. If he fails on this, we sure as hell better get a primary challenger against him. We are not going to go to the back of the line again on this.
