"Public Option" Never Really an Option

"We the People" are beginning to look like a gaggle of suckers:

Except, of course, for the select few:

(We're not really opposed to progressive taxation -- we simply take good, old-fashioned American pride in giving it all away to the super-rich and super-powerful. They're "our kind of people," after all, the people we most admire and hope someday to become.)

But it's not like we weren't warned centuries ago:

“I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.”
-----Thomas Jefferson, 1816
