The Real "Kill The Bill"-ers
By now it should be apparent to anyone that without a contemporaneous fix of the Senate health bill, the Stand Alone Senate bill is dead. No matter how many times Village Dems and bloggers chant "pass the bill," the math is inescapable - there simply is no possible way to get 218 votes in the House to pass the Senate bill WITHOUT a companion fix via reconciliation.
That may be "monstrous" or "politically stupid" or anything else anyone wants to call it, but it is the political reality. With that reality staring people in the face, the continued strategy of "punching the hippies" employed by Village Dems and bloggers is irresponsible, from THEIR perspective. It is nothing more than a juvenile temper tantrum now. Want them to "pass the bill?" Then push the Senate to agree to a companion fix via reconciliation. Anything else is nothing more than a de facto "Kill the Bill" movement.
Speaking for me only
