Here it is!

The much awaited column by the "Dean" of the Washington press corp, David Broder, who trashes the health care bill.

Broder is concerned about the impact on the budget.

Nobody should be surprised that Broder cites the Concord Coalition (founded by Pete Peterson) and the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget (which has Pete Peterson on the board of directors).

To be fair, Broder reaches out beyond those two "nonpartisan sources" and cites "Republican budget experts such as former CBO director Douglas Holtz-Eakin" who - hold your breath! - is also on the board of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.

Kudos to David Broder for giving a well-rounded survey of opinions on health care legislation. Take a bow, David!


Now now--everyone knows that Broder is the godfather of bipartisanship. He espouses it in every column.

It's just a remarkable coincidence that bipartisan middle-of-the-road moderate solutions are ALWAYS whatever the GOP is pushing at the moment.

I wonder if Dr. Kevorkian is on Broder's speed dial.
