    This is DEMOCRATS calling for a halt to healthcare reform legislation folks - the Scott Brown victory proving to have instant impace, and also showing a clear shift by some within the Democrat party AWAY from Obama-Pelosi-Reid...

    The fallout: Democrats rethinking health care bill

    ...But several House members said Tuesday night that they had no interest in pursuing the most likely scenario for moving ahead with a bill — approving the already-passed Senate version of health reform in the House – and some said President Barack Obama should step back and start over.

    In fact, early signs of split emerged as the polls closed in Massachusetts – between leaders like Majority Leader Steny Hoyer who said “the Senate bill is better than nothing,” and individual members who didn’t want to swallow the Senate’s version of health reform whole.


    ..."The only way to go forward is to take a step back. If there isn't any recognition that we got the message and we are trying to recalibrate and do things differently, we are not only going to risk looking ignorant but arrogant,” said Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), one of the leading advocates for health reform in the House.

    They won't torch their careers for a one term POTUS.

    Three elections now, and Barry has been unable to sway the voters to vote for his side, in two very blue states (NJ & Mass)

    Healthcare is history. Finally. If the dems keep pushing this unconstitutional bill the repercussions will have them in the minority come November. I expect them to start scurrying like rats.

    Im not going to drop my guard until the leadership takes it off the table. They may no longer have the votes, but that doesnt mean Obama, Pelosi, and Reid are going to back down immediately. Dont celebrate till its over

    The cons would push it through with 51 votes, they haven't had 60 votes since the 1920s. That's how they passed the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.
