Can the House get this albatross of a bill through?
Speaking about health care, I don't think the House has the votes to pass this albatross of a bill through. The House version barely passed by a simple majority last time 220-215. In order for this flying turd to go through, the House has to gag down the Senate bill. Since the Senate bill passed, the landscape in the House has changed considerably. Jack Murta is at room temperature, Bob Wexler ihas retired, Bart Stupak and Joseph Cao have suddenly grown backbones. All this considered, it still does not include a dozen or so Blue Dog Democrats that are fighting for their political lives. It's going to take one hell of a hail Mary to pull this one out.
