    The Obama administration has doubled down on making sure this Obamanation passes. I fear that there is a great deal of arm twisting, threats, and blackmail going on to make sure Pelosi gets a bare majority to support the Senate Bill.

    I hope I'm wrong.

    Nope. It will die of its own internal contradictions and disagreements.
    If it could have passed it would have done so already. They have strong armed, fucked sucked and cajoled every member they possibly could.
    Now after Scott Brown and what's happened to Ben Nelson people are running for the exits.

    No. BO can give all the pep talks he wants, but nobody's gonna take a knife for him. Not even his own gang.

    It better. I'm so sick of these weeny Democrats and obstructionist Republicans. These people are just wasting our tax dollars and getting NOTHING done. Time to pass the bill and move on to the next issue. People need health insurance companies to stop denying them treatment when they are sick and to stop denying them coverage when they have a pre-existing condition.

    Pass the bill and then amend with the public option and vote it into law in reconciliation. Just do it.

    Question.. How exactly did people survive before the era of "health insurance"? What did they do?
