New York Times' Prescriptions blog reports on Senator Sherrod Brown's polite warning to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid that Democrats have compromised enough on healthcare reform:

“A large number of people in this country including many, many doctors wanted Medicare for all,” he said. “That didn’t happen. Then we wanted a strong public option tied to Medicare rates. Then we wanted a public option building the Medicare network. That didn’t happen. Now we are saying public option coming out of the [Health, Education, Labor and Pensions] Committee. And now we’re saying public option with the state opt-out. Where was the compromise coming from their side?”
