I long for the days when real liberals represented New York in the United States Senate:

But, hey, at least he was a valiant champion for health care reform!

Tactically, Moynihan faulted Clinton for tackling health reform rather than welfare first. Health care was simply terra incognita for Moynihan. A former aide says that “I think that Moynihan never understood the health care bill, never tried terribly hard. It was a subject he was totally overwhelmed by. There he was, chairman of Finance, facing an incredibly complicated bill. He decided he was too old and set in his ways to spend six months learning health care. It’s sort of a joke among Moynihan staff that the one part of the bill he engaged and got into was the protection of medical schools.”

Those sure were the days.
