The polls have been going against the Democrats’ various schemes to overhaul our nation’s health care system since last summer. They’ve had to pay off various Senators to secure their votes. They’ve lost the editorial pages of the MSM. House Democrats are attempting to dodge an up-or-down vote on the Senate bill.
And still they press on.
Wonder if one day we’ll uncover some memo from a White House operative to his counterpart on the Hill that they need to “hide the defeat” of their efforts to overhaul our nation’s health care system.
If they pass it now, they’ll only prolong this divisive debate; it could well be the defining issue of not just the 2010 elections, but the 2012 elections as well which means a full term for the junior Senator from Massachusetts and new Republican Senators in New Jersey, Pennsylvania (in addition to Pat Toomey), Virginia, Florida, West Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, Missouri, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota (in addition to John Hoeven), Montana, New Mexico and Washington State. That should make Democratic filibusters impossible.
