Arianna was a guest on MSNBC's Morning Joe today to discuss the health care reform bill making its way through the Senate. She criticized the degree to which the legislation has been twisted into benefiting industry more than the public. The lobbyists are winning, she said. ""You know who should have been on the cover of TIME magazine? The lobbyists."

She also discussed the waning enthusiasm for President Obama among progressives and if he's capable of making a course correction to get his agenda back on track. When asked if she is happy with the direction in which the country is heading, Arianna replied "absolutely not."
