Howard Dean comes around to my way of thinking

Howard Dean said today: “You will be forced to buy insurance. If you don't, you'll pay a fine. It's an insurance company bailout… It's an insurance company bailout.”

Dean must be reading his Washington Examiner, because this is what I said in February, April, May, June, July (twice), August (twice, and thrice), September, (twice and thrice), October (twice and thrice), and December (I don't know why I skipped March and November).

Let's see where Democratic lawmakers go. Will they fight against industry and for their liberal principles, or will they follow their president down the path of corporatism?
