While Billy-Boy cavorts about with Kim Jong Il and screeches that the pesky GOP is "at it again," Obama decrees that health care reform will be thrust upon the masses with or without the GOP. At the very least, at least Obama's statement acknowledges the truth - that no GOP approval of any kind is necessary to implement the next stage of nationalization.
Yes, theoretically, the Dems can use "reconciliation" to pass the bill with a simple majority to avoid the filibuster, but it's much more difficult that way and comes with lots of requirements. That would be an absolute last resort and poses all kinds of problems. We shall see.
You are correct. If, for nothing else, the Dems want GOP involvement so that when this travesty of a "plan" ultimately proves to the the complete failure that it is, the Dems can then shrug their shoulders and claim it was a "bi-partisan" plan.
That was an extensive list, but I took away the loss of health options, invasion of privacy, higher taxes, greater government control, and the growth of liberal pet political projects. Thanks.
You got it and you're welcome.
