    He is in trouble, but you have to admire his persistance, he will probably get something passed but it won't be anything like he had in mind. Reid stated that he is ready to do the nuclear option only requiring 51 votes in the senate, but should that happen it could well signal the end of the democratic party for years to come. The people are already incensed over this insane spending and to pass it on a lower than normal count in the senate would just send them over the edge.

    I believe they will pass the original HR3200 in the Senate, with very few changes, and send it back to the house for a vote there, which will be a partisan win for the Dems.

    But isn't it quite humorous that out of one side of their ass they blame Repugs for "defeating health care reform" while out of the other side they acknowledge they don't need any Repug votes or support? That's lost on the typical Obamaphile out there.

    They aren't that concerned with keeping their jobs. They believe that since none of these proposals goes into effect until a YEAR after passage, and since they're confident either the economy will recover or will be SOLD as recovered by the lapdog media, they have nothing to worry about.

    And they're not lying when they pooh-pooh the protests, they truly believe it's just a loud fringe of older, white racist people who are protesting. So those don't worry them either.

    And guess what? Their gamble might just pay off. Nothing gets the sheep back into the pen better than a booming economy, or one that is sold as booming. And the sheep historically have been shown to have a short memory. Remember, elections are more than a year away. Their base is going to vote to re-elect anyway, no matter what they do. And they're truly not worried about the Moddies and the Indys, they think they'll have their votes via racism intimidation.

    Keep in mind this is only the gamble I believe they will take. Not that it will necessarily work. But they are invested in this President, and there will even be a good number of them who will actually, gladly fall on their swords for him. Even if they know for sure it's their political death.

    Because he is a cult figure, and never underestimate the power of the cult figure. Think Manson, Koresh, Jim Jones.... And you get the idea.

    It's so much fun to see these self-proclaimed "non-partisans" get so worked up.

    They are invested in the President as long as the polling numbers are behind him, but they know who sent them there in the first place and they know who can get them out of there in the second place.

    What part of WE DON'T HAVE DA MONEY TO PAY FOR AN OVERHAUL OF THE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM WITH THE PUBLIC OPTION OR THE SENATE VERSION do any of you not understand.

    It's not there and soon congress and the senate will come to that realization.
    Fix the 15% that don't have health insurance through legislation and leave the rest alone.

    They don't care about the polling numbers right now. They know those will come back into their favor as time passes. The sheep will get back in the pen. They always have.

    They are banking on it.

    Hey dingbat that is even older than me, the last administration had eight years of nothing but failure and incompetance. All it takes is for President Barak Hussien Obama to succeed on one issue, and he has done better than than the previous administration.
