    Kind of makes one think that Politico memo was onto something:

    Wonder how many Democrats are just saying they will vote yes to stop the Pelosi badgering? Do the Democrats have a plan to stop the vote if they have defectors? There must be some obscure rule they will invoke before disaster befalls them.

    right winger is such a tool

    there will be democrats who also do not want this bill passed, there will also be millions of americans, republicans, democrats, independents who also will not like that this bill will pass

    but who cares, it is such a great bill for america that the dems are too scared to put their name on the vote. and the hacks, like obama, don't care "now" about silly "procedural" rules.....

    you guys will get your victory, but it will be shameful and set an extreme new low in american politics. don't be surprised when the repubs get back in power and the pull the same crap. don't whine, just take it like you expect everyone else to take it now.

    Wonder if China will loan us enough money to pay for this bill? We can pass anything we want to pass in our Congress but if China won't lend us the money it's DOA.

    Its a dead certaincy the GoP will do the same thing to repeal the bill the Dems did to pass it.

    That is the thing about destroying the structure of procedure, once you unleash it anything goes, it becomes what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

    With 37 possible challenges to its Constitutionality, I would expect at least three different cases will reach the Supreme Court on differing grounds. We only need one to win.

    It is also unlikely that all the new converts will stay that way at vote time. I expect the defectors will claim independent status and join the Republican caucus. Who knows, the Dems could lose the majority BEFORE the November elections.
