Bill Moyers has a piece at Salon.com titled, "Mr. President, it's time to fight," and I think he's right. The Obama Administration lost control of the message in their push for an overhaul of the health care system, and the debate has lurched into the realm of irrationality. It is time to take back the issue and to do what is best for the nation.
The Democrats control both houses of Congress, and they need to push forward and get it done -- and to do so without giving in to Republican whining and scare tactics. And the president needs to get tougher.
Update (9/9): Obama speaks about health care to a joint session of Congress tonight at 8 p.m.
