    No wonder Harry said "No one is talking about reconciliation."

    Americans want Health Care Reform...not this 2,000 page monstrosity.

    Right, but I don't think Obama cares, question is will the Democrat politicians running this year care?

    The biggest beneficiary is going to be Hillary Clinton. Watch her run against Obama in 2012 if/when this thing totally blows up.

    I think Hillary wouldn't get anywhere.

    Probably what would happen is Dennis Kusinich would run and give him a scare.

    The Congress is always doing things that nobody wants, but usually, it's behind the scenes or under the table.

    This is quite amazing. The whole Democrat Party is aiming at political suicide. Scott Brown positioned himself as the 41st vote. Every Senator running against a Democrat is going to do the same.

    There will be someone in the house that casts the vote that puts it over the top if this succeeds, and if he does, regardless of who he is, every sitting Democrat will be that vote. Political suicide.

    The Dems must read the polls that say this is unpopular and actually opposed by an overwhelming majority. Are they just trying to get it done well before the election in hopes that it will be forgotten? It's mystifying.

    At least if they jump off the cliff, it will show that they are voting their beliefs rather than their hope to be re-elected.

    It's very interesting to watch the Clintons right now. Bill is encouraging Obama to do the exact opposite of what he did when HillaryCare backfired. At that time, Bill tacked to the middle and assumed the moderate positions upon which he ran for office.

    Obama also ran as a moderate; the huge drop in his approval levels is due to his governing from the far left. Bill and the war horses from his administration (Carville, Begala) are encouraging the Obamunists to take even harder far left stances. It looks like they are working to cause Obama to fail, thus setting up Hillary as a candidate in 2012 or 2016.

    Her lack of visibility right now is very telling as well.

    It is worst than political suicide...it is ignoring the will of the constituency that they are elected to represent!

    They arrogantly believe that they know what's best and the will of the people be damned.

    The most telling results of the CNN poll were among Democrats and Independents.

    ..........In Favor.........Start Over or Stop Work
    ________________________________________
    Dems.............49%..........................50%

    Indies.............18%..........................79%

    Repubs.............6%..........................93%

    .

    Notice that even the majority of Democrats are opposed to Obamacare in it's current form.

    Also of note is that CNN seems to go to great lengths to obscure that fact.

    In an unbiased news agency, with all the talk of Democrats using reconciliation...that would (and should) be the focus of the story.

    The fact that the majority wants them to start over again will have no impact on Obama, Pelosi, and Reid. They are part of the Progressive Elite who think they know what is best for us and who think of average Americans as being too stupid to make their own decisions.

    Referring to the "Public Option":

    Now, 55 percent say they like the idea, but the notion continues to attract intense objection:

    Opposition to Obama's Health-Reform Plan Is High, but Easing - washingtonpost.com

    Isn't that odd. The other idea Americas seem to like was expanding Medicare.

    Both things Republicans don't want. Odd, they supported the "Public Option" in the Iraqi Constitution, but are against it here. Very odd.

    Article 31:
    First: Every citizen has the right to health care. The state takes care of public health and provide the means of prevention and treatment by building different types of hospitals and medical institutions.

    Full Text of Iraqi Constitution - washingtonpost.com

    It's almost as if they like them more than they like us.

    I'm not aware that the GOP had supported the Public Option in the Iraqi Constitution. Please provide a source for that claim.
