Health Care Update
As of Tuesday morning, it looks as if the Republicans in the Senate--like those in the House--will have to delay their initial scheduled vote on their health care measure. The situation is exactly parallel to the House, insofar as both conservatives and moderates have refused to go along with the bill as written. Once again, the mainstream media is jubilantly suggesting that the plan is bound to fail. I am sure however that the recess will become the occasion for an all0oyut pressure campaign against all the Republican Senators in an effort to reduce opposition to 2 and allow the Vice President to break the tie. There will be more cosmetic changes in the bill, as in the House, but I still think something like it will pass. If it doesn't, we will have years of chaos as the Administration tries to destroy Obamacare from within.
