The 5 Stages Of Liberal Obamacare Grief

1) Denial: This bill is popular! Look at this Daily Kos/Research 2000 poll — it says everyone loves it! Passing this bill is the key to the Democrats doing well in 2010!

2) Anger: You Republicans are lying about the bill and the people who don’t like it are just too stupid to understand how great it will be! Why can’t you see that this bill is for your own good?!?

3) Bargaining: Come on, Republicans. We can work together to pass this bill. What if we allow insurance companies to compete across state lines? We could add that to the bill for you, we’ll get everything else we want, and the bill can pass, right? Right?

4) Depression: We had 60 Senators and a huge majority in the House! How could we have blown it again? How? How?

5) Acceptance: “And it may be that … if Congress decides we’re not going to do it, even after all the facts are laid out, all the options are clear, then the American people can make a judgment as to whether this Congress has done the right thing for them or not. And that’s how democracy works. There will be elections coming up and they’ll be able to make a determination and register their concerns one way or the other during election time.” — Barack Obama
