Passing Hot Air

In response to an Email from Tim Kaine, head of the DNC, congratulating the Dems over the House bill, and noting (DUH) that there's a bigger fight ahead:

Why do you, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi continue to pat yourselves on the back, as if you have actually accomplished something? As a
lifelong Democrat, my disappointment in your ability to really get something done continues. You have passed a watered-down bill, with unnecessary anti-abortion provisions, that has no chance of passing in the Senate.

WOW, are you great or what! It would be like me celebrating that I
just bought a lottery ticket, now all I have to do is win. When the
Democratic party is split over something as fundamentally moral and
important as this, I blame you as the party head, and President Obama.
You have control of the Presidency, the House and the Senate, yet you
are still miles away from your goal. George Bush was in the same
situation and what did he do? He invaded a country without cause, he
implemented an irresponsible tax break for the rich, he pushed
through a Medicare prescription plan that was a gift to the drug industry, and he decimated our environmental laws. Bush and the Republicans banded
together for these and countless other destructive actions, yet the
Democrats cannot unite for one of the most important issues of our
time.

Shame on you. If you and President Obama were in charge years ago, we
would not have Social Security or Medicare. Call me back when you
have actually passed a real bill with real impact.
