    It's a joke.

    An EO doesn't override legislation. The bill funds abortion, despite their strident and disingenuous claims to the contrary.

    Yeah it's political cover for the Stupak group. The beauty of an EO is the President can walk it back on a whim. This thing will pass with 217 or 218 (+1 or maybe +2) so no democrat can be called the "deciding vote" come November and the rest of the blue dogs can pretend they were never for it. (dollars to donuts that will not save most of them)

    The good news is the kick in the butt this will give to American's who cherish freedom.

    The bad news is the level of HC, the inovation and new products of the free market and the lives of the hardest working American's are about to fall off a cliff. (hardest working American's = doctors... I did not mean that as a metaphor)


    I'd get in line for your ration card very early tomorrow...

    Public outrage is going to grow. The taxes kick in four years earlier than the benefits - something that any candidate who will work to undo ObamaCare can use as a campaign plank.
