Or, God hates a welcher.
So Josh Trevino and I had a bet. (If you don't know Josh Trevino, I used to post at his old "Tacitus" blog, waay back in 2005 or so. Then he was one of the cofounders of Red State. These days he's blogging, very intermittently, over here.) Josh bet that we'd get some sort of health care reform, but without a public option. I bet that we would get a public option.
This was back in [rummages through inbox] the summer of 2008. Health care reform passed, sans public option, in February 2009. So I'm a little late on this one. But New Years' Eve is the time to discharge obligations.
The bet? Loser does a blog post on "I was wrong, and why".
