Read This Now - The Great Debaters

They don't reside in Congress, at least not these days, and I wouldn't go looking for them in the Senate either.

Ezra Klein
has the withering details, the truth hurts but it's good that someone is willing to say it.

Most members of Congress know virtually nothing about health care. Even the relevant committees only have a handful of knowledgeable legislators. Congress doesn't debate the legislation so much as debate its politics. Watching Congress consider this bill is like watching campaign ads being recorded. It's not like watching people talk about hard issues in a serious way. It's sad, actually.
