But we had to read people flipping out all morning saying the pubs were dumb.
This isn't the bill that bothered me as much as the senate bill. Everyone knew this one would die in the senate.
But I stand by my belief that a dem vote for either of them provides the cover that they need for the mid terms
Neither will become law but both provide fodder for political ads that will accuse them of the consequences of voting for obamacare to become law.
And it was stupid for a republican to help them out. It had zero chance of passing and symbolically gave the Dems a chance to say that they tried to fix it. Knowing it was doomed from the start, and could only help them politically, with no downside.
Obama should put his name on Mary's bill because even though he will veto it, it was most likely his idea to try to save the senate.
Smoke and fricking mirrors. And the average voter thanks these pricks and asks for a second helping.
