...so says Rep. Anthony Weiner, Democratic Congressman From New York, about the new health care "compromise" supposedly reached by Senate Democrats.  Weiner's comment was specifically about a key component of the deal that would allow expanding Medicare eligibility--in essence another way of creating a "public option". 

I don't know about you, but if single-payer proponents are praising Reid's "deal" as a victory for them, I'd be pretty scared!  This could be an even worse bill than what was previously proposed.  I'm sure more and more details will leak out in the days ahead...
