In an op-ed for The Huffington Post, CurrentTV host Cenk Uygur says President Barack Obama should have never "compromised" with Republicans on health care legislation and that the news media has aided the GOP in the health care debate.
"Not only did the Republicans not thank the president for including their mandate in the health care law, they have turned around and pretended they are against it. But of course it goes much deeper than that. In fact, they are now using it as the principal argument to take down the whole law.
They have no sense of shame or propriety. They're not embarrassed at their legendary hypocrisy and mendacity. They will do whatever it takes to win and support the corporate interests they are sworn and paid to defend. They also know that Democrats, generally speaking, are horrible at defending themselves and the media will help them tremendously by calling everything even."
