Why was it so important to Republicans to kill the healthcare reform bill? I know that it was crucial that they not allow Democrats to have a big victory, because that'll hurt their chances to establish another Republican-dominated administration, but couldn't they have just fought to help create a really fantastic bill that would have helped millions of Americans in need... and then taken rightful credit for their contribution to the bill? Why was it not an option to be BETTER than the Democrats at HELPING their constituents? Why did they have to put an enormous amount of spin on the issue and fuck everyone over for the sake of not losing face when the opportunity was there to help people in need? Why do people vote against their own interests? Why is it more important for people to be on the right side of a ridiculous cultural battle than to protect the life, health, prosperity, and wellbeing of their fellow human? WHEN DID COMPASSION GO OUT OF STYLE?!
