    Exactly. Reconciliation requires that the bill be pared down into something that doesn't even resemble the original abortion that it is. I doubt many Dems will vote for in in reconciliation.

    Dream on, fascists - it's dead.

    I have to wonder what kind of misleading terminology they will use to pass this 'new version' of the BILL? Should be interesting how this plays out, it does beat the soap operas on TV however. :lol:

    The difficulty all along has not been Republicans but Democrats. What version of Obamacare will they pass? Every version has had to have kickbacks, payoffs and compromises to please someone to vote for it, in the process pissing off someone else.
    I can't see Democrats voting for it, much less Republicans.
    How many times has Nancy Pelosi declared "we have the votes"??

    If she had the votes they would have passed it months ago.

    The Republicans will need to show strength and resolve in the face of a 24/7 onslaught of media reports calling them obstructionist to "what 99% of the American people voted for". They'll lie in order to make the Republicans look bad.

    Go Mitch, go John! Fight the good fight; the American people are behind you.

    It will be interesting to see which Dems in the House fall for the trick.

    They will be asked to vote for the Senate Bill as it now stands, with the promise that it will be "fixed" AFTER Obama signs it via Reconciliation.

    Those "fixes" will never happen - and the under the bus count will go up.

    LOL This won't be the first time the Senate left the poor Democrat Congressmen with nothing but their dick in their hands. The House would be stupid to go first and then HOPE the Senate and Obama won't change their minds at the last minute.

    Hopey Changey should just take Scott Brown's advice and go back to the drawing board on this debacle. It's a 2,800 page nightmare. Not even Democrats understand it. In fact i doubt that most Democrats have even read it. They will likely vote for it in lockstep without even reading it. That seems to be what Congress does these days. Just scrap the debacle and start over. Reconciliation or the Nuclear Option just wont cut it.
