Krugman calls GOP's bluff

Good Krugman post today. He says it's time for everyone to step up and unequivocally declare their position. Looking especially at the anti-reformists.
The odd thing about this group is that while its members are clearly uncomfortable with the idea of passing health care reform, they’re having a hard time explaining exactly what their problem is. Or to be more precise and less polite, they have been attacking proposed legislation for doing things it doesn’t and for not doing things it does. [...]

For this is the moment of truth. The political environment is as favorable for reform as it’s likely to get. The legislation on the table isn’t perfect, but it’s as good as anyone could reasonably have expected. History is about to be made — and everyone has to decide which side they’re on.
Normally I'm against the "with us or against us" mentality, but I think he's right this time.

In related news, you know I hate polls, but I've seen these numbers stay pretty consistent for a while now. A majority of Americans don't give a flying leap about bipartisanship and want a public option.
