    It is so intellectually dishonest to cloak himself in Kennedy’s mantle of social justice, when there is little justice in this plan.  If he would stop being so grandiose the conversation might be more productive.  This speech says that health care reform has been defeated.  What remains possible, maybe, is some regulation of health insurance practices.  What has been placed on the table tonight will have to be overturned if we are ever to meet our moral obligation to provide health care as a fundamental right (Kennedy’s words).  It’s so much harder to undo partial and stratified policies so we really should either insist on much more comprehensive measures or insist on redefining the President’s goals.
